RENTON, Wash. — The Seattle Seahawks on Thursday re-signed defensive back DeShawn Shead, who was an exclusive rights free agent.

Shead, 26, has been with the Seahawks since he joined the team as an undrafted free agent after the 2012 NFL Draft. He had played college ball at Portland State.

Shead made his first career start in 2014 in place of injured safeties Kam Chancellor and Jeron Johnson, who has since signed with Washington in free agency.

Shead finished the year with two passes defensed and seven tackles, four of which came against the Oakland Raiders in that first career start.

Shead was active for all 16 regular-season games this past year and played on special teams, where he recorded six tackles and blocked a punt. He has played both cornerback and both safety positions.

He is 6-foot-2, 220 pounds and a native of Palmdale, Calif.
