Seahawks sign C Lemuel Jeanpierre and DT Travian Robertson, release OL Andrew McDonald and DB Steven Terrell

The Seahawks made two expected roster moves today, signing center Lemuel Jeanpierre and defensive tackle Travian Robertson, releasing OL Andrew McDonald and DB Steven Terrell to make room on the 53-man roster

Jeanpierre played for Seattle from 2010-13, starting three games last season, before being released with an injury settlement in September, dealing at the time with a neck/shoulder issue. He is now healthy and is returning to the team to fill in at center with Max Unger out 3-4 weeks and backup Stephen Schilling also now out for the season.

Patrick Lewis filled in for Unger when he was hurt against Kansas City. But no other player on the roster has center experience. It would be no surprise if Jeanpierre steps immediately into a starting role this week against Arizona.

The 6-4, 304-pound Robertson, meanwhile, will be given a shot to help replace Brandon Mebane at nose tackle. Mebane is also out for the year with a hamstring injury suffered two weeks ago against the Giants.

He played for the Falcons in 2012-13 , seeing action in 12 games, and most recently was on Atlanta’s practice squad.

Robertson and Jeanpierre each played at South Carolina, overlapping in the 2007-09 seasons, years they undoubtedly had lots of practice matchups that will now be replicated in Renton.

McDonald was signed in September after the waiving of Jeanpierre when the Seahawks wanted to add depth to the offensive line. He did not play in any games on the offensive line but did see action on special teams against the Raiders.

Terrell, a second-year player from Texas A&M, has played in three games this season, and saw extensive action against Dallas when injuries hit the secondary. He could end up back on the practice squad, having been on the PS twice this season already.

The moves keep Seattle’s roster at the 53-man limit.
