Seahawks release SS Polk, sign TE Palmer

The Seattle Seahawks made a roster move today adding to their depth at the tight end position. The team announced they have cut rookie free agent strong safety Ray Polk and signed tight end Michael Palmer.

Palmer played in 43 games with five starts over the last three seasons for the Atlanta Falcons after signing with the team as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2010. Palmer had 21 receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown during his tenure with the Falcons.

According to the Tacoma News Tribune, Palmer joins 6 other tight ends on the Seahawks roster. Polk, a University of Colorado product, was one of six safeties with the team.
