Needing to add depth in the secondary, the Seattle Seahawks have signed Blackmon. Seattle signed Blackmon on Monday. Blackmon spent the past two seasons with Jacksonville but was with Seattle through the 2013 offseason before being cut during training camp. Blackmon made 12 starts in 23 games for the Jaguars with one interception.
Adding secondary depth has become a priority for Seattle because of injury concerns involving a significant chunk of the defensive backfield. Jeremy Lane suffered arm and knee injuries in the Super Bowl, and Richard Sherman and Tharold Simon both played through injuries in the game. Seattle is also looking to replace Byron Maxwell, who is a free agent and is expected to sign with Philadelphia.
