Night moves

The Seahawks continued to bolster their roster on Thursday, even after those players already in training camp had completed their work for the day.

Former Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman Alan Branch has agreed to sign with the team, according to reports, and the Seahawks also reportedly re-signed two of their own free agents – fullback Michael Robinson and defensive lineman Junior Siavii.

Robinson’s return is needed, as there was not a true fullback on the field Thursday. He also was a key contributor on special teams last season.

Siavii started six games last season – five at tackle when Colin Cole was sidelined and one at end, for an injured Red Bryant – before being placed on injured reserve. Siavii’s big body will help, with Cole recovering from ankle surgery and tackle Brandon Mebane unsigned.

Branch also brings versatility, as he can play the five-technique end spot as well as tackle.

Thursday, during a pair of walk-thrus, the No. 1 defensive line consisted of Bryant, rookie Pep Levingston, Jay Alford and Chris Clemons.
