The Seattle Seahawks have signed safety Jamar Adams from the practiced squad to the active roster, the team announced today. To make room the club released tight end Jeb Putzier.

Adams signed with Seattle as an undrafted rookie free agent on April 27, 2008. The club released him on August 30, 2008, before signing him to the practice squad the following day. He played in 47 career games for the University of Michigan, recording 172 tackles and four interceptions.

Putzier played in six games, making one start for Seattle. He signed with the club on March 4.

This is probably a sign that Will Heller is ready to return from his knee injury. He was in the locker room yesterday and was not walking with the limp that accompanied him in previous weeks.

  1. Wonder if he will be activated for special teams?

    Yes! He’ll be taking C.J. Wallace’s spot on special teams and, if we’re very lucky, get in replacing Russell. (wishful thinking) And for those of you clamoring for the ‘Hawks to play the young guys, here you go. (even though this one is due to injury.)

  3. Good move.

    Very good move. IMO Adams will be replacing Russell at some point this season. It may also nix them having to take a S early (rds. 1-3) in the draft. Letting them focus on OT in the 1st and WR or OG in the 2nd. Adams should have been on the squad from the start of the season pushing Russell IMO. I was very surprised when CJ Wallace made the squad over him.
