Seattle Seahawks: On Friday, a day after making Deon Grant, the third highest paid safety in football, the Seahawks reach an agreement with Browns safety Brian Russell. Terms on the contract weren't available, but Russell becomes the second new safety added to the roster in 24 hours. Russell accepted a five-year deal.
The additions of Grant and Russell means the Seahawks won't re-sign starter Ken Hamlin, a Pro Bowl alternate who is a free agent and recently visited the New Orleans Saints.
The 28-year-old Russell has played with the Vikings and Browns during his six-year NFL career. He was an undrafted acquisition of the Vikings in 2001 and had a nine interception season in 2002 in Minnesota.
