The Seattle Seahawks apparently are not totally sold on long snapper Bryan Pittman.
Team sources confirmed the Seattle Seahawks have signed veteran long snapper Kevin Houser.
Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported that Houser traveled to Seattle for a visit.
Houser, who turns 32 next month, spent nine seasons playing for the Saints.

In somewhat of a surprise move, the Saints released Houser in June. According to reports, Houser may have angered some of his teammates in New Orleans by encouraging head coach Sean Payton, quarterback Drew Brees and tight end Jeremy Shockey, among others, to invest in a financial deal with Louisiana Film Studios in Elmwood that went south.
However, Houser said he was told his release was football related.
Houser, it appears, will compete with Pittman, a Federal Way native who signed with the team during the offseason after being released by the Houston Texans last season, for the long snapping job. The Seahawks released long snapper Ryan Senser earlier this month.
