RENTON — Cornerback Ken Lucas is coming back to the Seahawks after agreeing to contract terms, a move expected to be announced Monday afternoon.

Lucas was drafted in the second round by Seattle in 2001 out of Ole Miss. He played four seasons for the Seahawks before leaving for Carolina as an unrestricted free agent.

He played the past four seasons for the Panthers, but was released this offseason. His addition by Seattle occurred after the Seahawks withdrew their franchise tag on linebacker Leroy Hill over the weekend, which shaved $8.3 million off Seattle's books.

Lucas already visited the Seahawks after being released by Carolina. The Seahawks and Bears were the two teams most avid in their pursuit.

Lucas is 30, and has played eight seasons in the NFL. He intercepted six passes in 2004 for Seattle and six in 2005 for Carolina, the season the Panthers and Seahawks played for the NFC Championship.

The Seahawks are also expected to add fullback Justin Griffith, who previously played in Oakland and Atlanta for Greg Knapp, the Seahawks' new offensive coordinator.

No terms were available on Lucas' contract. Griffith signed a one-year deal.
