The Seahawks got a needed boost to a thin position Wednesday.
The team announced that veteran tight end Ed Dickson had been activated from injured reserve.
Dickson had knee surgery during training camp, and is coming back at a fortuitous time.
To make room for Dickson on the roster, the Seahawks waived veteran cornerback Jamar Taylor. He had been playing nickel, but that role will now likely fall to rookie Ugo Amadi.
