Seahawks sign former Husky Pittman

As ESPN’s Mike Sando reports, the Seahawks today apparently solved their long-snapping issues by signing Bryan Pittman, who had previously been with the Houston Texans.
As Sando notes, this makes a lot of sense for both sides since the Hawks needed a long-snapper and Pittman has long desired to come home — he is from Federal Way and attended Thomas Jefferson High School. He later attended Walla Walla Community College back when that school had a football program, and then spent one year with the Huskies, in 1997, as a walk-on snapper, winning the job and appearing in every game. But he left the following year when he was not awarded a scholarship.
He then spent a few years playing semi-pro football before being noticed at a special teams combine in 2003 and getting signed by the Browns.
I detailed much of that journey in this 2004 story on Pittman in which he also said he regretted how he left UW and considers himself a Husky even if he spent only one season at Washington.
I also wrote this story on Pittman in 2003.
He missed the last four games of last season after testing positive for a banned substance. Pittman explained in this story that he took a diuretic that he said he was using solely to lose weight and that he called an “innocent mistake.”
