The Seahawks have re-signed former Husky Josh Shirley among a few roster moves.
A couple of new additions highlighted the Seahawks’ ninth practice of training camp — the return of Thomas Rawls to the field and the return of Josh Shirley to the roster.
Rawls, activated off the PUP list Sunday following off-season surgery to repair a broken and dislocated ankle, took part in some early individual drills but did not participate in team drills. He said afterward he would set no ETAs on his return to full duty saying he is “day-to-day.” Coach Pete Carroll said Rawls will not be rushed and also did not say when Rawls would return to full participation.
Shirley, a former UW Husky defensive lineman, was signed to add depth at LEO rush end position. Shirley originally signed with the Seahawks as a free agent after the season after having played in five games for Tampa Bay last season. Shirley was with the Seahawks in the spring before being waived in May.
