Following the retirement of Sidney Rice and a handful of roster moves earlier on Thursday, the Seattle Seahawks had two open roster spots ahead of the start of training camp on Friday morning.

The Seahawks have apparently found the two players that will fill those vacancies prior to camp getting underway.

According to his agent, Neil Schwartz, the Seahawks have agreed to terms with guard C.J. Davis. In addition, the team has signed receiver David Gilreath to a one-year deal, per Mike Garafolo of

Davis appeared in seven games for the Carolina Panthers in 2010, and seven games for the Denver Broncos in 2012.

Gilreath has been an NFL vagabond during his previous three seasons. He has played for seven teams – the Oakland Raiders being the most recent pit stop. The Seahawks will be his eighth team.

Gilreath appeared in three games for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2012 with one carry for seven yards.

The additions will get the Seahawks to their roster limit of 90 players.

    Those have to be the ugliest throw back uniforms ever. Though the Bronco’s uni with vertical striped socks were close.

    Best team in the league.

    If you take Minnie and added 40 guys with more talent, you get the Seahawks.

    If he shows up in that bumblebee uniform, cut him.

    Thank you, haters, for saying the Seahawks are one and done and won’t even make the playoffs. The players read that garbage, and it will help keep them hungry. Thank you for doing your part.

    Hopefully, this Davis guy is good. The guard play was extremely weak last year. I don’t think it would take that much to beat out Carpenter or Sweezy- not a very high bar. Gilreath probably won’t make the team unless he is an awesome punt returner.
