Seahawks waived DT Jaye Howard.

Howard was the No. 114 overall pick in last year's draft. He appeared in two games as a rookie but didn't register on the stat sheet. Although the Seahawks are dealing with injuries up front, they still have plenty of depth.

Seahawks agreed to terms with No. 114 overall pick DT Jaye Howard on a four-year contract.

Seattle drafted Howard likely on suggestion from former DL coach Dan Quinn, now coordinator of the Florida Gators. A productive pass-rushing tackle, Howard tallied five sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss in 2011. It remains to be seen if he will play the three-technique behind Brandon Mebane or the five-technique behind Red Bryant.

Seahawks selected Florida DT Jaye Howard with the No. 114 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

A pass rushing defensive tackle, Howard had a solid performance during the Senior Bowl and consistently disrupted the backfield in college. He has a solid closing burst to shoot gaps but Howard doesn't have the strength to counter offensive linemen once in their grasp. His anchor is suspect as well. The Seahawks continue to add to their pass rush in this draft.
