According to the league’s transaction report for today, the Seattle Seahawks have signed UTEP receiver Donavon Kemp to the team’s 90-man roster.

At 6-1 and 195 pounds, Kemp replaces Early Doucet, who was released earlier this week.

Kemp, 24, was released by the Dallas Cowboys in April. He suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during training camp with Dallas in August last year. The Seahawks now have 13 receivers on the roster.

  1. A guy named Kemp playing for a Seattle sports team? I like the sound of that.

    Holy sh** Batman, we have a boatload of similar sized WR’s!

    Crabtree hurts them a million times more, you didn’t even need to post a link gH…

    We never had Percy on the field, how can that hurt us?

  5. raymaines says:

    It would hurt if Harvin were out next year because of his cap number, but not so much this year. Besides, the 49’ers are a little thin at WR while the Hawks seem to be better off, but we may be drinking our own kool-aid.

    I remember being SO happy that the ‘Hawks passed over Crabtree and picked Aaron Curry, and I was even happier when AC signed right away and Crabtree held out and didn’t seem to get untracked all season. Neither one of those guys has lived up to their pre-draft hype but I was sure wrong about AC.

    In 2009 we also passed on BJ Raji, Brian Orakpo, Brian Cushing, Percy Harvin, and Clay Matthews, who have all made the Pro Bowl. We also passed on Pro Bowl center Alex Mack but picked Max Unger in the second round.
