Seahawks add depth at tight end with signing of Coffman
The Seattle Seahawks added depth at tight end by signing free agent Chase Coffman on Tuesday.
The move came two days after starting tight end Jimmy Graham was lost for the season due to a ruptured patellar tendon. Graham's injury left the Seahawks with Luke Willson and Cooper Helfet as the only tight ends on the active roster.
Coffman appeared in one game with the Tennessee Titans, hauling in four receptions for 42 yards in Week 2, before he was released near the end of October. A former third-round draft pick of Cincinnati in 2009, he had six catches in 13 games with the Titans last season.
To make room for Coffman, the Seahawks released center Drew Nowak on Tuesday. Nowak started the first five games of the season and seven overall before losing his job to Patrick Lewis.
