Seahawks add Evan Moore

With Kellen Winslow gone, the Seahawks had only two tight ends.

They now have three again.

Per multiple reports, tight end Evan Moore has agreed to terms with the Seahawks.  Moore had been cut on Friday by the Browns.

Undrafted out of Stanford in 2009, Moore spent three seasons in Cleveland.  He had a career-high 34 catches for 324 yards and four touchdowns last season, appearing in 16 games with four starts.

And he’ll likely be a lot cheaper than the $3.3 million Winslow was due to earn this season in Seattle.  Moore also will be a more natural fit, with knowledge of the West Coast offense that the Seahawks employ under Darrell Bevell.

  1. Good for him he was under used in Cleveland because of his poor blocking skills but at 6’6 he’s tough to defend and has amazing hands. I wouldn’t be surprised if he blows up while in Seattle.

  2. Trust me hawk fans.THIS IS A GREAT MOVE. a true improvement and a big target for russell in the red zone. plus we dont loose the 7th round pick now to tampa cause winslow didnt play game one. hawks are gone be good. look for a WR,RB and CB too.

  3. Great hands. Decent speed at TE. Takes plays off and doesn’t give great effort on some deeper passes. Gets hurt often. Worth having if you’re not concerned about crappy blocking skills. Has a place in the NFL but with Jordan Cameron on the rise Moore didn’t have a place here in CLE. Plus he did nothing to improve from last season. Good luck.

  4. I am sorry – doing this to Winslow is not cool, and if I was a player on Seattle’s team I wouldn’t commit my loyalty when this is how they treat players.

    Winslow did nothing wrong and looked great in training camp and pre-season. To save a buck and release someone at this point in the season is not fair – very dirty.

    Carrol must GO. Erratic and NFL do not mix.

  5. Like this pickup, and cry me a river for Winslow. I dont feel bad for the guy as he’s always been lazy and been one of those guys if he worked hard could have been so much better. Moore will work harder then Winslow, and that’s a guarantee.

    Doing this to Winslow? What exactly are they doing wrong here? Its a business dummy! I am sure Winslow understands this! All teams do this type of thing! Sometimes teams cut players THEN resign them! Do you even watch football?!?!? Wow!! 🙂

  7. I think the players know the contract renegotiation situation happens with players. It’s happened with other players in prior years in Seattle, though they normally accept the lower pay. I’m guessing whatever the Seahawks offered Winslow, it is more than he’ll now fetch on the open market, which may mean he’ll decide to sit out the year or retire.

  8. Where was this fool’s outcries when they cut TO?

    As a Browns fan, I’ll miss Evan Moore. I could never understand why he didn’t get on the field more often. Frustrating last year when he was the only one catching balls, but we still had Alex Smith in like twice as much. It’s a crowded position for Cleveland, so I get the reason why we dumped him. Anyway, I have faith he’ll be a good player for Seattle. I’ll have to keep an eye on him for my fantasy team

  9. K2 did not fit in Russell Wilson’s locker room, it’s not always about pure talent, the guy is not about winning. Look at what the Pats do every year, you scratch your head when they sign unknown guys until they turn out special, opposite of Raiders and Bengals who only look at talent… I like where Carroll is going with this team
