The Seahawks have added some pass catching and special teams depth.
The club has re-signed wide receiver/returner Bryan Walters and signed tight end Tony Moeaki, per the NFL’s Tuesday transactions.
To make room for Walters and Moeaki, the Seahawks waived linebacker L.J. Fort and defensive back Terrance Parks (injury settlement). Fort and Parks played on special teams in Seattle’s 30-24 win vs. Oakland on Sunday.
The 27-year-old Walters has appeared in six regular season games for Seattle this season, catching five passes for 44 yards, returning 12 punts for 109 yards and two kickoffs for 43 yards. His biggest impact could come in the kicking game, an area in which Seattle really struggled on Sunday, with a blocked punt surrendered for a touchdown among the miscues.
Moeaki was last with Buffalo, which released him with an injury settlement (hamstring) this summer. A third-round pick of the Chiefs in 2010, the 27-year-old Moeaki has caught 80 passes for 1,009 yards and four touchdowns in regular season play, all with Kansas City (2010, 2012).
Moeaki gives the Seahawks four tight ends, but starter Zach Miller (ankle) has not played since Sept. 21. Walters, meanwhile, is one of six wide receivers on Seattle’s roster.
