Heygood re-signed; Overton released

Anthony Heygood has been signed. Again. Matt Overton has been released. Again.

Those are the latest transitions in the revolving door that has been the lower end of the Seahawks’ roster the entire offseason.

Heygood, a second-year linebacker, was on the practice squad last season and signed to a future contract in January. New linebackers coach Ken Norton, Jr. was effusive in his praise of the 6-1, 232-pound Heygood during the spring minicamps.

But he was then released last week when offensive lineman Chester Pitts was signed.

Now Heygood is back, at the expense of Overton, a long snapper from Western Washington University. Overton became expendable when long snapper Clint Gresham was claimed off waivers this week. Overton was signed in February, released in March and re-signed in April.

For those scoring at home, the Seahawks have now made 106 roster moves since coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider were hired in January.
