The Seattle Seahawks signed sixth-round cornerback Mike Tyson to a four-year rookie contract on Wednesday.

Tyson, selected with the 187th overall pick of the draft out of Cincinnati, is expected to play cornerback for the Seahawks after being a safety during the majority of his time in college.

Tyson was one of four defensive backs selected by the Seahawks in this year’s draft.

He becomes the fifth member of Seattle’s 11-man draft class to sign with the team. Seattle’s top six selections – defensive tackles Malik McDowell (second) and Nazair Jones (third), guard/tackle Ethan Pocic (second), cornerback Shaquill Griffin (third), safety Delano Hill (third) and wide receiver Amara Darboh (third) – still have yet to sign their deals with the team.

    After he tackles someone he can knock them out cold… welcome back Iron Mike!

    Maybe he can punch out the ball from the receiver.

    He’ll be notoriously hard for wide receivers to beat, if the game Punchout is anything to go by.

    This was delayed because someone stole his tiger.

    Relax guys. He’s a sixth round project moving from safety to corner. Probably practice squad material his first year.

    Gotta read up on your pop culture, Kammy. We’re making light of his name.

    When they practice with this guy, they better make sure they have their helmets on to protect their ears.

    I’m glad we added some extra punch to our defense.

    Slow signing draft picks this year for the Hawks. I grew accustomed to them wrapping up all the draft class by this time in recent drafts.
