The Seahawks announced that the team signed cornerback Danny Gorrer this afternoon. To make room for Gorrer on the roster, Seattle released running back Kregg Lumpkin.
Gorrer, 26, initially signed with New Orleans as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Texas A&M in 2009, but was released and signed with the St. Louis Rams, where he played in three games with one start.
Gorrer spent the 2010 season on the Baltimore’s practice squad, and played 11 games for the Ravens in 2011.
During his three-year NFL career, Gorrer has played in 14 games with one start, collecting 10 tackles (seven solo), five pass breakups and two special teams tackles.
Seattle now has six corners on the active roster, and 11 defensive backs.
Seattle also released wide receiver Ricardo Lockette and linebacker Allen Bradford from the practice squad and signed guard Rishaw Johnson and linebacker Korey Toomer to the practice squad.
Lumpkin, 28, was kept on Seattle’s active roster as insurance for Marshawn Lynch, who was questionable for Seattle’s first preseason game because of back spasms. Lumpkin was inactive for the first two games of 2012
