Michael Bennett isn’t the only player the Seattle Seahawks looked to keep in-house before the start of free agency on Tuesday.

According to Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports, the Seahawks have agreed to terms on a deal to keep tight end Anthony McCoy in Seattle. A team source said the deal is expected.

McCoy missed the entire 2013 season after suffering a torn Achilles during offseason workouts with the team in May. He was waived/injured by the team and landed on injured reserve with Seattle after clearing waivers.

McCoy was a sixth-round pick of the Seahawks in 2010 and caught 31 passes for 437 yards in three seasons with the team before missing last season. He had his most productive season in 2012 with 18 catches for 291 yards and three touchdowns serving as a backup to Zach Miller.

McCoy was set to become an unrestricted free agent on Tuesday. A short-term deal with Seattle would help him recoup some value before hitting the market again.

Seattle currently has Miller, Luke Willson and Travis Beckum under contract at the tight end position for next season.

    Good……..Would like to see his progress this coming season…….Not a huge cap liability.

    Good under the radar signing. I thought McCoy came to life when Wilson started targeting him in the second half of 2012. Good blocker too.

    This is expected.laughable franchise signing mediocre players.

    Not a bad player. Good blocker and decent pass catcher with speed, if inconsistent hands. Could do a lot worse for a backup TE.

    Both those players I feel will be gone Bennett was the prize now restructure Miller and extend either Sherman or Thomas

    Just shove some Adderall down his throat, and he’ll fit right in

    I want the Hawks to draft Jenkins the ex husky TE.

    I said! Notice other teams don’t have inadequate talent like this!

    I was high on McCoy for 2013 like many other fellow Hawk fans and he was hit with a pre-season injury.
    Maybe this is just the homer in my coming out but I really think Luke Willson has a break out year.

    Played as well as Eric Decker did in that thing they called The Super Bowl.

    He was really emerging as a great #2 TE in 2012. Sucks that he got hurt last year. With him and Willson, Seattle has some really good TE depth now whether Miller stays or gets cut.

    Is it just me or does this signing indicate the Hawks are going with McCoy and Willson at TE and taking the ‘restructure or walk’ approach with Zach Miller? I love Miller in this offense and would be sad to see him go, but dang that is a big cap number. Luke Willson does seem more than capable of being the ‘next man up.’
