RENTON — The Seahawks have filled two receiving spots, signing Billy McMullen and Samie Parker.
McMullen is familiar with the Seahawks offensive terminology having played for three seasons in Philadelphia under Andy Reid and spending training camp in Washington with Jim Zorn.
Parker played the past four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. He was most recently released by the Carolina Panthers before the regular season began. Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren said Parker is starting from scratch with regard to learning Seattle's offensive system.
Right guard Rob Sims is on injured reserve with a torn right pectoral muscle. He was trying to find a way to keep playing, Holmgren said, but on Tuesday Holmgren said it was just too much to think Sims could play despite the injury. Sims suffered the injury in the first half of Sunday's loss at Buffalo and played through it.
Seattle still has two kickers on the 53-man roster, and Holmgren intimated that there may be more roster moves coming this week.
"Everyone kind of stay on your toes is the best way to put that," Holmgren said. "There's a chance we're not finished with making moves this week."
