Kevin Smith added to the crowd at WR

A crowded competition at wide receiver just got a little more crowded for the Seattle Seahawks, who signed former University of Washington receiver Kevin Smith on Wednesday.

Smith (5-foot-11, 215 pounds) was originally signed by the Arizona Cardinals on May 12 as an undrafted rookie free agent. He was released by Arizona on June 4 and claimed off waivers by the Jacksonville Jaguars one day later. Jacksonville released Smith on June 19.

Smith had 50 receptions for 765 receiving yards and four touchdowns during his senior season at Washington. Smith also returned 62 kickoffs in his college career for a 23.3-yard average.

The Seahawks now have 13 receivers on the 90-man roster, including rookie draft picks Paul Richardson and Kevin Norwood. The team probably will keep six receivers at the most, and maybe only five.
