Seahawks Sign OT Damion McIntosh

After placing offensive tackle Brandon Frye on injured reserve, the Seattle Seahawks sign veteran offensive tackle on Tuesday.

The Seattle Seahawks announced on Tuesday that they have signed veteran offensive tackle Damion McIntosh.

To make room on the 53-man roster, offensive tackle Brandon Frye has been placed on injured reserve.

Frye, starting his third game at left tackle in place of an injured Sean Locklear, who was starting at left tackle in place of an injured Walter Jones, suffered a stinger eight plays into the Seahawks' 41-0 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

A 10-year veteran, McIntosh began his career as a third-round pick (83rd overall) by the San Diego Chargers in the 2000 NFL Draft. He started 37 of 41 games during his four seasons with the Chargers before signing a six-year deal with the Miami Dolphins in 2004. McIntosh spent three seasons with the Dolphins, starting 43 games.

McIntosh then signed with the Kansas City Chiefs, whose offensive line was coached by none other than current Seahawks offensive line coach Mike Solari. During his two seasons with the Chiefs, McIntosh started 31 games.

The Chiefs released McIntosh as part of their final cuts on September 4.
