Seahawks waived DL E.J. Wilson.

Selected with the fourth-round pick acquired from the Eagles (with DE Chris Clemons) in exchange for Darryl Tapp, Wilson recorded just one tackle in two games this year.

The Seahawks have reportedly agreed to terms with fourth-round DE E.J. Wilson on a four-year contract.

A three-year starter at North Carolina, Wilson adds much-needed size to the Seahawks' line as a power rusher. He'll line up behind starter Lawrence Jackson at left end, where he'll have a chance for playing time as a rookie.

The Seahawks will use fourth-round pick E.J. Wilson at left end, where he'll be listed behind Lawrence Jackson on the depth chart.

It's an ideal landing spot for Wilson. Despite being a first-round pick in 2008, Jackson hasn't knocked anyone's socks off. Wilson will give the Seahawks' defensive line some much-needed size.

Seahawks selected North Carolina DE E.J. Wilson with the No. 127 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

An interesting prospect, Wilson managed just 12 career sacks in 37 starts in Butch Davis' pro-style defense. He was a bone-crusher when he got inside penetration, though, ripping off five forced fumbles as a senior and recovering two more. Wilson lacks ideal burst off the snap at 6-foot-2, 280, but will have a chance at early playing time for the end-shallow Seahawks.
