Seahawks release Willingham, sign S Teal

The Seattle Seahawks announced some moves today, releasing cornerback DeAngelo Willingham and punter Tom Malone. The Seahawks also agreed to terms with long snapper Matt Overton and safety Quinton Teal.

Teal is entering his fourth season in the league. He played his first three years with Carolina, starting four games for the Panthers in three seasons. Teal was a restricted free agent for Carolina but not offered a contract with the team.

Teal also participated in Seattle's pre-draft camp as a tryout player, but was not extended an offer at that time. He adds depth to a safety group that includes Jordan Babineaux, Jamar Adams and rookies Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor.
