McCoy expected to re-sign with Seahawks

Looks like the Seahawks are set to cross another free agent off the list as it is expected that the team will soon re-sign tight end Anthony McCoy.

The news was first reported by Rand Getlin:

Indications are that the signing is not official but that it is expected to happen.

McCoy, who played at USC and was drafted in the sixth round by Seattle in 2010, missed the 2013 season with an Achilles injury suffered in May.

But he played in all 32 games in the 2011 and 2012 seasons with 14 starts, catching 31 passes for 437 yards and three touchdowns.

McCoy will rejoin a tight end group that currently includes Zach Miller and Luke Willson as returners from last year’s 53-man active roster. Kellen Davis was the No. 3 tight end last season but is also now an unrestricted free agent, and the signing of McCoy may be an indication that Davis won’t be back.

Seattle also recently signed free agent Travis Beckum.

Miller is due to have a salary cap number of $7 million  in 2014 leading to speculation about his future with the team. Recent indications are that he could agree to a restructuring of his deal rather than being cut.

The re-signings of Michael Bennett and McCoy would  give Seattle 13 players who will become unrestricted free agents Tuesday.

Here is the list:

CB Brandon Browner

TE Kellen Davis

OT Breno Giacomini

K Steven Hausckha

QB Tarvaris Jackson

S Chris Maragos

DT Tony McDaniel

DT Clinton McDonald

OL Paul McQuistan

FB Michael Robinson

LB O’Brien Schofield

WR Golden Tate

CB Walter Thurmond
