According to Scout.com's Adam Caplan, the following players worked out for the Seattle Seahawks in September:

Offense

QB, Mike Reilly – Worked out 9/30; A Kennewick, Washington native, Reilly was the Great Northwest Conference's Offensive Player of the Year in 2008. After going undrafted in the 2009 NFL Draft, Reilly signed a free agent contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers. During the '09 preseason, Reilly completed 10-of-15 passes (66.7%) for 117 yards. He finished the pre-season with a 90.1 passer rating, but was among the team's final cuts. Reilly was not signed and remains a free agent.

TE, Tory Humphrey – Worked out 9/30; Originally signed by the Indianapolis Colts after going undrafted in 2005, Humphrey (6-2, 255) caught 11 passes for 162 yards last season for the Green Bay Packers, who re-signed him in April after not tendering him as a restricted free agent in February. Humphrey broke his arm during training camp and was released with an injury settlement. Humphrey was not signed and remains a free agent. 

TE, Rodney Hannah – Worked out 9/30; Hannah (6-6, 260) was signed as undrafted free agent by the Dallas Cowboys in 2007, where he's spent parts of the last two seasons. Hannah has yet to appear in a regular season game. Hannah was not signed and remains a free agent.

T, Gerald Cadogan – Worked out 9/8; The former Penn State standout signed with the Carolina Panthers after not being selected in the 2009 NFL Draft. Cadogan was not signed and remains a free agent.

T, Chris Patrick – Worked out 9/8; Patrick's NFL career has yet to involve him dressing for an NFL game, but it has included stints with the New York Giants, New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers, Detroit Lions, San Francisco 49ers, and Philadelphia Eagles. Patrick was signed to the Kansas City Chiefs' practice squad on Tuesday, September 29.

T, Damion McIntosh – Worked out 9/16; McIntosh is a nine-year veteran right tackle who began his NFL career as a third-round pick (83rd overall) by the San Diego Chargers in 2000. He has also played for the Miami Dolphins, and most recently was with the Chiefs, who released him at the end of training camp. McIntosh has also worked out for the New Orleans Saints, and remains on the free agent market.

G, Tre Stallings – Worked out 9/8; Stalling (6-3, 315) was a sixth-round pick (186th overall) out of Mississippi by the Chiefs in 2006 and appeared in one game in 2007. Cut at the end of the 2008 training camp, Stallings signed with the Baltimore Ravens in December, and was shuttled between their 53-man roster and practice squad, but did not appear in a game. He remains a free agent.

G, Jacob Bender – Worked out 9/8; Bender (6-6, 315) was chosen by the New York Jets in the sixth round (177th overall) out of Division II Nicholls State in 2007. Bender was active for a pair of games his rookie season, but was released at the end of last year's training camp. Bender then spent 2 ½ months on the Patriots' practice squad before being signed to the San Francisco 49ers' active roster midway through November. He was one of the 49ers' final cuts last month and is a current member of the New York Giants practice squad.

C, Steve Justice – Worked out 9/8; The 201st overall pick of the 2008 NFL Draft, the 6-3, 293-pounder from Wake Forest appeared in eight games, including one start, for the Indianapolis Colts last season.

LS, Bryan Pittman  – Worked out 9/5; Pittman, a native of Tacoma and a University of Washington alumnus, had signed a free agent contract with the Seahawks during the off-season and was poised to handle the long-snapping duties this season before injuring a finger while moving prior to training camp. Seattle signed Kevin Houser to replace him and he's remained the team's long-snapper. Pittman has not signed elsewhere, but will work out for the San Diego Chargers next week.

Defense

LB, Chase Bullock – Worked out 9/30; Bullock signed with the Arizona Cardinals after not being selected in the 2009 NFL Draft.

LB, David Herron – Worked out 9/30; Herron joined the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agents out of Michigan State in 2007 and gained some notoriety for being involved in a personnel tete-a-tete between the Vikings and New England Patriots, who claimed Herron off waivers, knowing that the Vikings had wanted to add him to their practice squad.

As an unrestricted free agent, Green signed a two-year deal with the Miami Dolphins during the off-season, but struggled during training camp and lost his starting job to second-round cornerback Sean Smith. Green signed with the San Francisco within hours of his release from the Dolphins, but was part of the team's final cuts just three days later. Green worked out earlier this week for the Tennessee Titans, but remains a free agent.

CB, Trae Williams – Worked out 9/15; Williams was chosen in the fifth round (159th overall) by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2008 after being a four-year starter at the University of South Florida, where he picked off 13 passes his final two years.
