Seahawks to add linebacker for needed depth

Published on August 8, 2010 by     Seahawk Fanatic

With three linebackers sidelined by injury and a fourth — Anthony Heygood — having torn his Achilles’ tendon before his first practice got underway, the Seahawks have agreed to contract terms with former Buffalo Bills fifth-round draft pick Alvin Bowen, according to Adam Caplan of FoxSports.com.

Alvin Bowen

Bowen, 26, was drafted in 2008 out of Iowa State, but suffered a knee injury and spent his rookie season on injured reserve for Buffalo. He was then on the Bills’ practice squad last season before being picked up by the Washington Redskins.

He was on the ‘Skins roster the final five games last year, but never got in a game.

The 6-foot-1, 222-pounder was second in the nation with 155 tackles his junior season at Iowa State.

He’ll join a Seahawks’ roster where Aaron Curry, Lofa Tatupu and rookie Joe Pawelek have all been sidelined by injuries the last few days.

Additionally, Heygood wound up injuring himself in warmups before his first practice after being added to the roster last week.

That has left Seattle with five healthy linebackers in camp: David Hawthorne, Leroy Hill, Will Herring, Matt McCoy and rookie Dexter Davis.

The Seahawks have not yet confirmed the move, which will require another player to be waived to create space on the 80-man roster.

The team practices for the second time Saturday at 4 p.m.
