Seahawks sign LB Khairi Fortt, waive LB Christian French
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks have signed linebacker Khairi Fortt after waiving linebacker Christian French due to an injury.
Seattle made the roster moves on Monday. French, an undrafted free agent out of Oregon signed with Seattle following the NFL draft. He appeared to suffer an injury on the final day of rookie minicamp.
Fortt was a fourth-round pick of the Saints in the 2014 draft out of California, but was released midway through the season. He spent time with Cincinnati and Jacksonville later in the 2014 season, but was cut by the Jaguars during training camp before the start of the 2015 season.
