McCoy officially re-signs

The Seahawks officially re-signed tight end Anthony McCoy to a one-year deal Tuesday morning.

McCoy missed all of last season after he tore his Achilles in late May. He said he expects to be ready for OTAs.

"It's been a long process," McCoy said. "It's been a real difficult process for me; long process. At this point in my rehabilitation process, I feel I am just about there. About ready to go and hit the field. Still have a lot more work to do to get it to where I want it to be.

"I'm dealing with some of the best trainers in the league right now and I know that they are going to have me right come September."

McCoy will likely slide in as the third tight end behind Zach Miller and Luke Willson, assuming Miller is retained by the Seahawks.

"I'm pretty much like any other guy," McCoy said. "I'm coming out there to compete for a spot on the team and I'm just going to come out and do my job like I always do. Wherever that lands me on the roster, then that's where I'm going to be. Whatever the coaches ask of me, it's my job to go out and do it to the best of my ability."

As expected, McCoy was happy about the Super Bowl win, but disappointed he could not help out.

"At first, it was tough," McCoy said. "You see all the things you could do to contribute to the team's success. Not being out there, it weighed a lot on me at first. As time went by, you kind of just let it pass and all you focus on is the stuff you can control. All I could control at the time was my rehabilitation process.

"It was fun (to see them win) and it was kind of sad for me, at the same time."
