According to Adam Jude from Seattle Times former University of Washington wide receiver Kevin Smith is heading to the Seattle Seahawks. An NFL source told the Times that Smith and the Seahawks agreed to a deal today.

Jude writes, “Already in his short pro career, Smith has bounced around. Undrafted last month, he signed a free-agent deal with the Arizona Cardinals, who cut him on June 4. The Jacksonville Jaguars picked him up immediately, but then waived him two weeks later.”

Following and injury in 2011 and a so-so season in 2012, Smith, emerged as a very dependable receiver for the Huskies. In 2013, his senior season, Smith finished with 50 catches and team best 765 yards with four touchdowns.

Jude continues, “His chances of sticking with the Seahawks, given their depth at receiver, appear slim. But Smith has surprised us before.”
