Seahawks Work Out Four Free Agents

NFL teams work out players every week, and's Adam Caplan reports on whose tires the Seahawks have been kicking recently. Much like the Seahawks' recently shelved lime-green jersey, this edition had a decidedly UFL feel to it.'s Adam Caplan reports that the following players have worked out recently for the Seattle Seahawks:

WR, Taye Biddle - A 6-1, 185-pound wide receiver from Mississippi, where he played with Seahawks center Chris Spencer, Biddle has bounced around since entering the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Carolina Panthers in 2006. Biddle has also spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Detroit Lions, and his most recent NFL stint was with the New York Giants.

Biddle spent part of last season on the Giants' active roster and practice squad, and was signed to a futures contract when the '08 season concluded. A week later, Biddle was shot in the hand outside his mother's apartment during what's believed to be a botched robbery. Three surgeries were required to fix his hand, which made him a longshot to make the Giants' roster during training camp.

The Giants waived Biddle at the end of camp, but he'd catch on with the Florida Tuskers of the UFL, where he led the league with 30 receptions for 525 yards, and added a pair of touchdowns.

LB, Ronnie Palmer - Signed by the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of Arizona, the 6-3, 245-pound linebacker was released after the Redskins' post-draft mini-camp. Palmer made seven tackles for the UFL-champion Las Vegas Locomotives this Fall.

LB, Leon Williams - A former fourth-round pick (110th overall) out of the University of Miami by the Cleveland Browns, Williams played 46 games, including 12 starts, totaling 163 tackles and 5 quarterback sacks before being released by the Browns after Week 1. Unsigned by an NFL team, Williams signed with the New York Sentinels and was credited with 35.5 tackles this season.

S, Derrick Richardson - Undrafted out of New Mexico State, the 5-11, 205-pound safety signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he had four tackles and a pass defensed during pre-season action. Richardson was waived in the first team's cut down to 75 players, and signed with the Florida Tuskers, where he made 5.5 tackles in a reserve role this season. Top Stories
