The Seahawks signed veteran defensive tackle Al Woods on Friday, Woods’ agency, Sports Trust Advisors, announced on Twitter.

Woods visited Seattle last month, along with Corey Liuget, as Seahawks coach Pete Carroll sought a run-stuffing defensive tackle.

Woods, 32, played two games for the Seahawks in 2011.

He appeared in 14 games with the Colts last season with eight starts and made 24 tackles. In nine seasons, Woods also has played games for the Buccaneers, Titans and Steelers.

He spent the past two seasons in Indianapolis.

Woods previously visited the Lions.

  1. Seattle’s defense is starting to reshape for next year…lots of questions with Mychal Kendricks at linebacker, Ziggy Ansah at defensive end, and uncertainty at safety…but their defense has talent with Bobby Wagner, Jarran Reed, and Shaquill Griffin to name a few….

  2. Smart, low-risk moves for Hawks. It’s likely these guys won’t all boom but we see the same pattern with the Patriots. If they provide depth in a rotation they are at least some value and they won’t hurt in the comp pick formula.

  3. I kind of like the 1 year low risk deals they are making, next year Hawks will have a tone cap space too (regardless of what all the Wilson haters say)

  4. Going to be a bunch of D turnover. I wouldn’t even count on Griffin starting at corner. This D needs ball hawkers/turnover forcers. If you can’t fully stifle teams, Pete knows a high number of turnovers is another way to win the day. This is going to be a good year for Hawk fans!

  5. This team is going to be better than the national pundits think it is. I’m already seeing people pick the niners to challenge the Rams instead of Seattle again. People never learn. When #3 is on your team, you’re a credible playoff contender.

  6. I respectfully disagree with some and think Suh is still a potential pickup.
