The Seattle Seahawks signed a receiver today who took part in the team’s rookie mini-camp two weekends ago. But it was not Washington’s Kasen Williams, who remains unsigned.
Instead, the Seahawks signed receiver Deshon Foxx of UConn to take a place on the 90-man roster created when the team waived as injured running back Demitrius Bronson. Bronson sat out the mini-camp with a hamstring injury.
Foxx, listed at started 23 of 38 games played for the University of Connecticut and recorded in his career 73 receptions for 918 yards and three receiving TDs, in addition to rushing 40 times for 277 yards and a 68-yard TD run. Listed at 5-10, 173, Foxx also handled punt returns for UConn.
Bronson, a Kentwood High grad who also played at Washington and Eastern Washington, was signed as a rookie free agent on June 16, 2014. He spent the majority of 2014 on Seattle’s practice squad before being signed to a futures contract on Feb. 4, 2015.
