The Seattle Seahawks have confirmed they’ve signed veteran wide receiver Brandon Stokley. Because Stokley has been around 12 years, he’s officially the last white receiver in NFL history to not draw comparisons to Wes Welker.
Stokley began the year as a Bronco but was unable to make the 53-man roster. The Seahawks are always making changes (or strongly contemplating changes) at the receiver position, so no personnel move here should come as a surprise.
Our Seahawks Rapids Reporter thinks the addition of Stokley may just be a sign that the team anticipates Mike Williams missing some action. (Williams suffered a shoulder injury in Week 3.)
The Seahawks already have two receivers – Deion Branch and Golden Tate – capable of handling the slot duties that Stokley mastered as Colt. Then again, Branch is the only Seattle wideout with more than seven catches through three games, so it’s possible Pete Carroll is looking for fresh veteran blood to jolt the position.
