As expected, the Seahawks today have announced the signing of defensive end David King to the 53-man roster. To make room on the roster, they have released linebacker Allen Bradford.
King was signed off of the Bengals’ practice squad and is undoubtedly being added to add depth on the line with Demarcus Dobbs suffering what coach Pete Carroll called “a pretty severe ankle sprain.”
However, Dobbs remains on the 53-man roster.
The 6-4, 300-pound King was a seventh-round pick of the Eagles in 2013 and has yet to play in an NFL game.
Bradford had been back with Seattle since Nov. 12 when he was signed off of Cleveland’s practice squad to add depth at the linebacker spot, which has now gotten healthy. Bradford had been inactive the last three weeks.
