RENTON, Wash. — The Seattle Seahawks have claimed safety Kevin Ellison off waivers from San Diego, a day after the Chargers released him following his arrest on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance.
A Seahawks spokesman confirmed the move on Tuesday.
Police in Redondo Beach, Calif., stopped Ellison for speeding in a school zone near his former high school in late May. Police said a search of Ellison’s vehicle turned up 100 Vicodin pills. He was booked and released on $10,000 bail.
Ellison started nine games at strong safety for the Chargers as a rookie in 2009.
His move to the Seahawks means another reunion for new coach Pete Carroll with a former Southern California Trojan.
