Offensive lineman Chester Pitts has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Pitts’ agent was unable to answer a phone call when contacted and did not immediately return a message.
Pitts, 31, is coming off microfracture surgery and earlier this month held a workout, and had plans to visit a couple of teams as well. He has experience playing for Alex Gibbs, Seattle’s new offensive line coach, when he was with the Texans. Pitts has played eight seasons in the NFL, starting all 114 games he has played in.
Where he will fit in Seattle’s offensive line remains to be seen as the Seahawks seemed to settle on a starting five over the offseason with Russell Okung at left tackle, Ben Hamilton at left guard, Chris Spencer at center, Max Unger at right guard and Sean Locklear at right tackle.
Pitts is listed as a guard on his player-profile page, but the distinction between guards and tackles isn’t as pronounced in Gibbs’ blocking scheme as it is in traditional man-blocking schemes.
