RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks made several roster moves Monday, but the most significant one was signing veteran offensive lineman Wade Smith.

Smith, 33, has played for four NFL teams and started the last four seasons for the Houston Texans. He was selected for the Pro Bowl in 2012.

The Seahawks also signed offensive tackle Cory Brandon, a second-year player from Oklahoma who they claimed off waivers from the Arizona Cardinals.

"We're hoping Smith and Brandon can bring us something," said Seahawks coach Pete Carroll. "We want to continue to make these [offensive line] spots as competitive as possible. Wade brings a lot of flexibility. He has started at all five spots. He's a real good guy and smart guy."

The Seahawks also re-signed rookie defensive tackle Andru Pulu of Eastern Washington. The team released wide receiver Ronald Johnson and linebacker Brandon Denmark.
