KIRKLAND, Wash. (Sept. 13, 2005) -- The Seattle Seahawks signed veteran defensive end Rodney Bailey. To make room, the Seahawks released wide receiver Jerheme Urban.
Bailey spent last season on injured reserve with New England, after spending his first three years with Pittsburgh. Bailey has played in 48 games with one start, and has 39 tackles, 9½ sacks and one fumble recovery.
Urban spent his first two years with the Seahawks, and won a roster spot during a heated training camp competition this year. Last year, Urban played in six games, starting one, and caught six passes for 117 yards and one touchdown. He was on Seattle's practice squad during the 2003 season.
Urban was inactive for Seattle's opening loss at Jacksonville.
