From the Seahawks web site:
The Seattle Seahawks have released tight end John Nalbone and signed tackle Edawn Coughman to the 90-man roster, the team announced this afternoon.
Coughman spent the 2011 season with the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL but was released on May 14. He attended Dodge City Community College in Atlanta before transferring to Shaw University in Raleigh, N.C., where he earned All-CIAA first-team honors in 2009.
Coughman comes with some baggage, too.
He was cut by the Argos after being arrested on a gun possession charge in Montreal in May.
According to the Toronto Star, police in Montreal say a cleaning lady at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel reported seeing a gun on a table in Coughman’s room. Later, a SWAT team entered the room and found a loaded gun under the mattress.
CTV Montreal reported that Coughman, 23, told a bail hearing he had bought the gun legally in Georgia and was unaware the law was different in Canada.
Nalbone signed to the Seahawks practice squad on October 4, 2011. He was originally drafted by Miami in the fifth-round (161st overall) of the 2009 NFL Draft. He has also spent time with Minnesota, Denver, Philadelphia and Cincinnati in his career.
