The Bears signed special teams ace Alex Bannister to a one-year deal on Wednesday. We examine what other teams were interested in his services, his ability as a receiver and what obstacles he'll have to overcome to stick around.
The situation at receiver could be an interesting one for the Seahawks as they move closer to training camp. Darrell Jackson, Nate Burleson, Bobby Engram, D.J. Hackett and Peter Warrick are expected to form the heart of the group. The team generally keeps six receivers, leaving one spot up for grabs.
All around the NFL, teams are releasing players as they begin to prepare themselves for the 2006 season. Two WR's and one DT comprise the list of players the Seattle Seahawks released earlier this afternoon.
As first reported on the team's official site, the Seahawks announced on Tuesday that WR Alex Bannister has been placed on injured reserve, ending his season.
