With injury issues in their secondary, the Seattle Seahawks have signed former Green Bay Packers and Cleveland Browns defensive back Damarious Randall to their practice squad.
The Seahawks announced that move Tuesday; they also signed defensive back Ryan Neal to their 53-man roster and linebacker Tim Williams to their practice squad. Seattle still has one open spot on its 53-man roster.
A first-round drat pick by the Packers in 2015, Randall has made 56 career starts, including 26 over the previous two seasons with Cleveland. He has played cornerback and safety, two positions where the Seahawks are banged up.
They didn't have starting right cornerback Quinton Dunbar (knee) or backup Neiko Thorpe (hip) for their win over the Dallas Cowboyslast week. They lost strong safety Jamal Adams late in the game to what coach Pete Carroll has called a first-degree groin strain and were playing without one of his backups, Lano Hill (hip).
Carroll credited general manager John Schneider for the addition of Randall.
