The Seahawks confirmed claiming Kevin Ellison off waivers. The safety had been cut by San Diego after having been arrested for possession of a controlled substance (vicodin). Ellison started nine games for the Chargers as a rookie. He played for coach Pete Carroll at USC. The Hawks' first-unit safeties Tuesday were Lawyer Milloy and rookie Earl Thomas, with Kam Chancellor and Jamar Adams on the second unit. Veteran Jordan Babineaux was nowhere in sight. Didn't ask Carroll about him specifically after practice, but I'll try to follow up.
