After playing well during the rookie minicamp over the weekend as a tryout player, the Seattle Seahawks rewarded veteran offensive tackle Alex Barron with a spot on the 90-man roster, the team announced this afternoon.
Along with Barron, the Seahawks agreed to terms with tight end Cooper Helfet, cornerback Donny Lisowski and tackle Andrew Mitchell.
To make room for those four, Seahawks released cornerback London Durham, linebacker Adrian Moten, tackle Jon Opperud and guard/center Brent Osborne.
Selected No. 19 overall by the St. Louis Rams in the 2005 draft, Barron started 74 of 76 games played at right and left tackle.
He spent the 2010 season in Dallas, playing in 11 games with one start. Barron moved on to New Orleans in 2011, but landed on the season-ending injured reserve after suffering a torn meniscus during training camp. Barron was released by the Saints on Oct. 22.
Barron also had a tryout with San Francisco before joining Seattle’s minicamp last week.
