The Seahawks have one less tight-end target to worry about in free agency.
The team agreed to terms with Will Heller earlier this week before he entered the free-agency market. The contract has not been signed yet, but he will be coming back. Terms of the deal were not available this afternoon.
Heller was the team's backup tight end last season behind starter Jerramy Stevens, who is also an unrestricted free agent. The team waived Itula Mili at the end of last season, making tight end a position of need since Ben Joppru was the only tight end under contract for next season.
Heller was signed from Tampa Bay last year and projected to fill the No. 3 tight end role of a blocking specialist like Ryan Hannam in 2005. Heller caught four passes last season, including one for a touchdown, and he played some fullback when Mack Strong went down.
The Seahawks have expressed interest in Daniel Graham, an unrestricted free agent who played for the New England Patriots the past three years. Graham is currently in Denver, visiting the Broncos. He will be in Oakland next and Seattle is on the agenda after that, though the visit to the Seahawks has not been finalized.
