Seahawks Sign Beckum, Parks, Taylor

7:37pm: Former Giants tight end Travis Beckum was also signed by the Seahawks, according to’s Ian Rapoport (via Twitter). Beckum, a third-round draft choice in 2009, has not played since suffering a knee injury in New York’s Super Bowl win after the 2011 season. He was on injured reserve for the duration of 2012 and out of the league in 2013.

The team also announced that it signed 6-foot-2-inch defensive back Terrance Parks, who last played with Hamilton of the Canadian Football league after being spending the 2012 training camp with the Chiefs.

2:32pm: The Seahawks have signed linebacker Mike Taylor, reports Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Taylor appears to be rejoining Seattle on a reserve/futures contract after briefly being signed to the team’s practice squad in December.

Taylor, who released by the Seahawks after spending Week 15 on the team’s practice squad, played his college ball at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Although Taylor earned first team All-Big Ten honors in his senior year, multiple sports hernia operations sidelined him for the combine and his pro day, and he went undrafted in 2013. He has yet to appear in an NFL game.

Following the Super Bowl, the Seahawks also signed nine other players to reserve deals.
