Seahawks bring back Anthony McCoy; Release TE Chase Coffman

The Redskins have signed tight end Anthony McCoy

Anthony McCoy is back home in Seattle

The Seahawks signed tight end Anthony McCoy and safety Akeem Davis Wednesday and waived tight end Chase Coffman. There was already an open spot on the 53-man roster following the release of cornerback Cary Williams on Monday.

McCoy, who spent part of this season with Washington, was drafted by the Seahawks in the sixth round of the 2010 draft out of USC, and played three seasons in Seattle before Achilles injuries caused him to miss all of the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

McCoy has 31 catches for 437 yards and three touchdowns in his career. His best season came in 2012 when he caught 18 passes for 291 yards and three touchdowns, starting five games and appearing in all 16.

The Seahawks also signed Akeem Davis. Davis spent rookie minicamp in 2013 with the Seahawks after going undrafted out of Memphis, then spent the 2014 season with Washington and part of 2015 in New Orleans. Most recently, Davis was a member of Tampa Bay’s practice squad this season.

The Seahawks also made practice squad moves, signing receiver Douglas McNeil III, who spent training camp with Seattle and had previously been on the practice squad this season.
