Seahawks waive DT Andru Pulu

The Seahawks today announced they  have waived rookie defensive tackle Andru Pulu, who had signed with the team in May as an undrafted free agent.

Pulu was given a $15,000 bonus to sign with the team, tying Texas DE Jackson Jeffcoat for the biggest bonus the team gave to an undrafted free agent.

The 6-1, 322-pounder from Eastern Washington is a native of Federal Way who also began his career at Washington in 2009 before an assault charge led to his dismissal from the team and eventual transfer to EWU.

Any UDFA is somewhat of a longshot to make the team. But Pulu’s chances surely weren’t helped when he was unable to attend any of the 10 OTAs because EWU is a quarter school and via NFL rules, he could not practice. He did practice during the team’s three-day mini-camp last week

Also, the defensive tackle spot also got a big boost two weeks ago when the Seahawks signed 12-year veteran and six-time Pro Bowler Kevin Williams.

Seattle remains with 10 defensive tackles on its roster and 16 players listed as defensive linemen.

The release of Pulu leaves Seattle one below the 90-player roster limit, so expect the Seahawks to sign another player soon.

The Seahawks have released three of the nine players they initially signed as UDFAs following the draft, the others being UW QB Keith Price and South Carolina CB Jimmy Legree.
