The reigning Super Bowl champions have signed the first member of their draft class.
The agents for sixth-round safety Eric Pinkins announced that their client has agreed to terms with the Seahawks on a four-year contract. Pinkins was one of nine players that the Seahawks added to their roster.
Pinkins has good size (6-3, 220 pounds) and put up great numbers at San Diego State’s pro day, but he isn’t going to be playing much safety unless something goes very wrong. Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor aren’t bad safeties to learn from, though, and Pinkins will be in a position to do that if he convinces the Seahawks of his value on special teams in the offseason and preseason.
That’s going to be the case for several members of the draft class as the Seahawks return a lot of the players that helped them claim the title last season.
