The Seahawks signed veteran long-snapper Kevin Houser on Thursday, giving the team a second player at that position heading into training camp, which begins July 31.

Houser, 31, played the past eight seasons for the Saints. He will compete with Bryan Pittman, another veteran long-snapper signed this offseason, for the Seahawks' snapping job.

Seattle has used three different long-snappers the past two seasons, turning to veteran Jeff Robinson in 2007 and again last season after 2008 draft pick Tyler Schmitt suffered a back injury that required surgery. Schmitt was waived this offseason.

Ryan Senser, who participated in this year's offseason minicamps as a long-snapper for the Seahawks, was released by the team on July 2.
