RENTON, Washington — The Seattle Seahawks have signed wide receiver Deshon Foxx after he participated in the team's rookie minicamp as a tryout player.
To clear a spot on the 90-man roster, the Seahawks waived/injured running back Demitrius Bronson.
Foxx started 23 of 38 games in his college career at Connecticut and caught 73 passes for 918 yards and three touchdowns. He was also a threat as a runner, carrying the ball 40 times for 277 yards and one TD.
Bronson signed with Seattle as a rookie free agent in June 2014 and spent the majority of the season on the Seahawks practice squad. He was signed to a futures contract in February after the Super Bowl, but did not participate in the recent rookie minicamp with a hamstring injury.
