The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms with veteran long-snapper Bryan Pittman on a one-year deal.
Pittman, 32, joins the Seahawks after six seasons with the Houston Texans. His tenure in Houston ended with a four-game suspension at the end of 2008 for violating the NFL's steroid policy.
Prior to his suspension, Pittman had played in 92 consecutive games for the Texans. He had a streak of 598 successful snaps broken in 2007, a streak that began in 2003, his first season in the NFL.
Though he's expected to compete with Ryan Senser in training camp, Pittman gives the Seahawks a reliable, veteran presence at a position that's been a revolving door since Jean-Phillipe Darche suffered a hip injury during the 2006 season opener.
