RENTON, Wash. — The Seattle Seahawks have brought back another arm for the beginning of their off-season program, re-signing quarterback Austin Davis.

The Seahawks also signed free agent linebacker Paul Dawson, while exclusive rights free agents centre Joey Hunt, defensive end Branden Jackson and long snapper Tyler Ott signed their tenders. Seattle made the moves at the beginning of its off-season workout program Monday.

Davis will enter his second season as a presumptive backup to Russell Wilson. Davis was a one-time starter with the Rams. He appeared in three games with Seattle last season, but did not throw a pass. He hasn’t thrown a pass in a game since 2015.

Dawson was signed to Seattle’s practice squad last November and appeared in three games late last season.
