Pro Bowl tight end Zach Miller, as announced by Pete Carroll.
“This is a fantastic move for us,” coach Pete Carroll said after practice at the team’s training camp. “Zach is a great football player. He’s a great person, and great competitor.
“I think he makes a more versatile offense. We’ll be able to use he and John (Carlson, the incumbent starter) in so many different ways. They’ll be on the field at the same time a ton. Thrilled about that flexibility.”
Miller, 25, caught 60 passes for 685 yards for the Oakland Raiders last season and had a career-high 66 catches in 2009. In four seasons with the Raiders, the 6-foot-5, 255-pound Miller caught 226 passes for 2,712 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Carroll also confirmed the additions of two other free agents: cornerback Kelly Jennings, who started 14 games for the Seahawks last season; and defensive tackle Jimmy Wilkerson, who was with the Saints last season but also played for defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and line coach Todd Wash in Tampa.
