The Seahawks again have dipped into the CFL to add depth, signing receiver Jeff Fuller and running back Cameron Marshall on Thursday.

Fuller spent the past three seasons with the Calgary Stampeders, and Marshall played the past two years with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

The 6-foot-4, 216-pound Fuller played at Texas A&M (where he was teammate of running back Christine Michael) and caught 233 passes in four seasons there, including a school-record 34 touchdowns. He was not selected in the 2013 NFL draft and was waived by the Miami Dolphins in training camp as an undrafted free agent. He then signed with Calgary.

Fuller’s size and CFL background inevitably will draw comparisons with Chris Matthews, who had a breakout Super Bowl game with the Seahawks but was released in November.

The Seahawks have signed four other receivers to futures contracts since the end of the season — Deshon Foxx, Antwawn Goodley, Douglas McNeil III and Tyler Slavin. All but Slavin ended the season on the Seahawks’ practice squad.

Here is Fuller’s NFL.com draft profile listing him at 223 pounds.

And here’s a recent story from the Calgary Herald indicating that Fuller might not have been wanted back by the Stampeders after dealing with injuries the past two seasons.

Marshall, who played at Arizona State from 2009-12 and was seventh on the Sun Devils’ career rushing list with 2,700 yards when he graduated, also was in camp with the Dolphins in 2013 before being waived.

He rushed for 614 yards in 2015 with Winnipeg.

Fuller is the son of former 49ers safety Jeff Fuller, and Marshall is the older brother of University of Oregon receiver Byron Marshall.

The two are the 19th and 20th players the Seahawks have signed since the end of the season as they build their roster to the training-camp limit of 90.

Marshall (5-11, 211) is the second running back under contract for the 2016 season, joining Thomas Rawls, with the recent retirement of Marshawn Lynch. Michael, a restricted free agent, also is expected back.
