The Seattle Seahawks have invited five players in for a tryout at this week’s three-day minicamp, which begins this afternoon.

Along with WR Antonio Bryant and LB Brian Banks, which have already been reported, the Seahawks have invited receiver David Anderson, tight end Cooper Helfet and linebacker Kyle Knox.

Helfet was added to the 90-man roster after a productive rookie minicamp in May, but was released to create a spot for Kellen Winslow Jr. after his trade from Tampa Bay.

Anderson is a seven-year veteran who last played for Washington last season, appearing in four games and finishing with six receptions for 70 yards and a score.

Before that, Anderson played six years in Houston, with a high of 38 receptions for 370 yards in 2008. At 5-10 and 193 pounds, Anderson likely will compete for a job as a slot receiver.

At 6-1 and 220 pounds, Knox is a rookie out of Fresno State who finished with 55 tackles his senior season. Knox is a Los Angeles native.

    Who? And who cares?

    Antonio Bryant is the only interesting name on this list. A total head case, but pretty darn talented. He could be great, if not he just gets cut.

    What I’m liking in all of this is that Seattle is starting to sound like a place where a troubled free agent can get a do over. All of a sudden Seattle starts to sound like a destination rather than an outpost. That system worked for the Raiders for about 30 years until Al Davis lost his mind and it could work here. Geoux Seahawks!!
