RENTON, Wash. (AP) - The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms with long snapper Matt Overton to address a problem area from recent seasons.
The team also announced Wednesday it agreed to terms with safety Quinton Teal while releasing cornerback DeAngelo Willingham and punter Tom Malone. Teal is a Coastal Carolina and Marlboro County High School alum who spent his entire career with the Carolina Panthers.
The moves come on the eve of the expected announcement that nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Walter Jones is retiring. The 36-year-old Jones has had two knee surgeries and hasn't played since Thanksgiving 2008.
The Seahawks signed Overton and fellow long snapper Patrick MacDonald in February. They released Overton in March. Overton went to Western Washington University. He was with Seattle during 2007 training camp.
