The Seattle Seahawks have closed out the week by adding three players.  The team has announced the acquisition of guard Deuce Lutui and linebacker Barrett Ruud, and the return of cornerback Roy Lewis.

Lutui, who played for  Seahawks coach Pete Carroll at USC and who spent all six of his NFL seasons with the Cardinals, became a reserve in 2011, with 15 appearances and no starts.  He had been a full-time starter for four full seasons.

Ruud arrives after playing one season in Tennessee, which followed six with the Buccaneers.  A groin injury limited him to nine games (all starts) in 2011.

Lewis re-signs with the Seahawks after four NFL seasons.  He spent his rookie year of 2008 with the Steelers and the last three in Seattle.  Lewis has one career start.
