Another day, another four roster moves for the always busy Seahawks.
Linebacker Tyjuan Hagler and wide receiver Matt Simon have been signed. To clear roster spots, wide receiver Marcus Maxwell was waived/injured and cornerback Chris Richards was released.
Hagler (6-foot, 236 pounds) is in his sixth NFL season. He was a fifth-round draft choice by the Indianapolis Colts in 2005. Hagler had a career-high 54 tackles in 2007, when he started seven games for the Colts. He also started games in 2008 (three) and last season (seven) – including the Week 4 games against the Seahawks, when he made three solo tackles. Hagler missed the final nine games last season because of a ruptured biceps. The Colts opted not to re-sign Hagler this offseason.
Simon (6-1, 199) signed with the New Orleans Saints after the 2009 draft and spent a week on the practice squad before being released. He played at Northern Illinois, catching 96 passes for 1,660 yards and eight touchdowns while playing in 44 games and starting 17.
Maxwell and Richards had been signed in May.
These transitions bring the total of roster moves to 120 since coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider were hired in January.
