Julian Howsare gives the Seahawks a fullback option to look at, as they do not currently have a player at that position on the roster.
Howsare, who played at Clarion (Pa.) University, was on the Jets’ practice squad most of last season and then played in two games for New York this year before being waived. The 6-3, 255-pound Howsare played three snaps at fullback and 30 on special teams.
Howsare gives Seattle 1o players on its practice squad, which is the maximum. Seattle had been one under after releasing QB Jake Heaps last week and also promoting LB Jordan Tripp while also signing defensive end Sterling Bailey.
Seattle’s practice squad also includes running back Zac Brooks.
