According to Scout.com's Adam Caplan, the following six players worked out for the Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday, October 16.
WR, Derek Kinder – Drafted 251st overall in the 2009 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears, Kinder was released on September 1 to make room on the 75-man roster for free agent cornerback Rod Hood. Kinder (6-0, 202) was a long-shot to make the Bears' roster, catching just one pass for 4 yards in three preseason games. The former Pittsburgh star was a Biletnikoff Award finalist in 2006, but tore the ACL in his right knee in 2007.
WR, Aaron Kelly – The 6-5, 193-pound receiver from Clemson was signed by the Atlanta Falcons after not being selected in this year's draft. Kelly was with the Falcons throughout training camp, catching one pass for 7 yards during the preseason. Kelly was part of the Falcons' final cuts on September 5 and has remained a free agent.
WR, Nate Swift – Swift (6-2, 203) caught 166 passes for 2,476 yards and 22 touchdowns during his four-year career at Nebraska. He signed with the Denver Broncos after not being selected in the 2009 NFL Draft. During the pre-season, Swift caught 2 passes for 15 yards, returned four punts for 28 yards, and had a 14-yard kick return. He was waived on September 4 and has remained a free agent.
RB, Jamall Lee – Lee, a 6-1, 220-pound running back from Bishop's University in Quebec, was the 3rd overall pick in the Canadian Football League draft after running a CFL Scouting Bureau record 4.39 in the 40-yard dash. Lee opted to sign as a free agent with the Carolina Panthers, where he carried the ball 16 times for 48 yards (3.0 ypc) and a touchdown during the pre-season. Carolina released Lee on September 5. Since being released, Lee has worked out for other teams, including the Pittsburgh Steelers, but has not signed elsewhere.
FB, Jed Collins – The former Washington State Cougar tight end joined the NFL in 2008, signing with the Philadelphia Eagles as an undrafted free agent. Collins (6-2, 250) has also had stints with the Chicago Bears, Cleveland Browns, and most recently was with the Kansas City Chiefs, who waived Collins on September 4.
FB, Bill Rentmeester – The 6-0, 254-pound fullback was stuck behind HBO's "Hard Knocks" star Chris Pressley during his time at Wisconsin, getting most of his playing time on special teams. He ran for a career-high 50 yards last season and went undrafted last April, signing with the San Diego Chargers on May 1. Rentmeester was released on August 6, signing ten days later with the San Francisco 49ers, where he caught one pass for 7 yards in preseason action. Rentmeester was waived on September 5.
