Confirmed: Hawks to sign FB Ganther

It looks like the Seattle Seahawks have got their backup fullback. Brian McIntyre is reporting that the Seahawks will re-sign fullback Quinton Ganther today.

UPDATE: Ganther's agent David Canter confirms his client is headed back to Seattle.

The Seahawks also added offensive tackle Breno Giacomini to practice squad after cutting him from the active roster over the weekend.

Seattle cleared a spot to make a move by releasing running back Chris Henry on Monday. And with Michael Robinson questionable with a hamstring injury, Ganther gives them insurance at the position.

The Seahawks signed Ganther as a free agent in March, and he earned the starting fullback job at the end of training camp. However, Ganther suffered a knee injury and was released after the third game of the season once Robinson established himself as the starting fullback.

The Oakland native returns just in time to travel this week back to the Bay Area to face the Raiders.
