The Seattle Seahawks made a few more 2019 NFL Draft pick signings official on Wednesday, leaving them with only a handful of unsigned players from last month’s 11-player class.
Fourth-round WR Gary Jennings Jr, sixth-round RB Travis Homer, sixth-round DL Demarcus Christmas, and seventh-round WR John Ursua inked their respective contracts to make themselves officially Seahawks players.
Jennings was primarily a slot receiver at West Virginia, which seems to be pretty damn important given that the slot position has a void to fill with Doug Baldwin’s release. Christmas was a defensive tackle with Florida State, and rather humorously he’s born on July 4th and not December 25th. Homer declared early after three seasons at the University of Miami, having fallen just shy of 1,000 yards on 164 carries as a junior. He’ll be pushing for a spot as the team’s third-down back, as well as part of the special teams rotation. Hawaii’s Ursua will be battling for a roster spot as Seattle reshapes its WR depth chart.
The following Seahawks draft picks remain unsigned: DE L.J. Collier, WR D.K. Metcalf, and LB Cody Barton. After that, it’s really time to get 2019 rolling.
