Seahawks top draft choice Lawrence Jackson has reported to training camp and is practicing with the team.
Jackson, the 28th pick from Southern California, agreed to an $11.25 million, five-year contract Friday morning, according to a person familiar with the deal. The contract includes a $6.1 million signing bonus, said the person who requested anonymity because the team did not release the terms of the deal.
The Seahawks also announced the signings of fourth-round draft choice Red Bryant, a defensive tackle from Texas A&M, and fifth-round pick Owen Schmitt, a fullback from West Virginia. They also signed free-agent wide receiver Bryan Gilmore, formerly of the San Francisco 49ers.
To make roster room for the signings, Seattle released Mike Green, a former starting safety with the Chicago Bears whose two seasons with the Seahawks were ruined by a severe foot injury. The team also cut defensive tackle Kevin Brown and fullback Dan Curran.
Second-round pick John Carlson, a tight end from Notre Dame expected to be Seattle's starting tight end this season, is still unsigned and not in camp.
