The Seahawks have signed former Rams safety Maurice Alexander, as he tweeted Friday night. The deal is for one year, according to a source. The 27-year-old Alexander (6-1, 222) began last season as the Rams' starting strong safety but was waived after four games and didn't appear in another game in 2017. He had also played free safety with the Rams and made a combined 23 starts over parts of his four seasons with the team. Alexander was a fourth-round pick in 2012 out of Utah State, where he was teammates with Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner. Earlier Friday, Seattle re-signed reserve cornerback/safety Akeem King. Perhaps it's merely coincidental, but these moves and the three-year deal the Seahawks gave safety Bradley McDougald to keep him in Seattle come on the heels of another report that Seattle is open to trading Earl Thomas. Kam Chancellor, Seattle's other starting safety, is in danger of never playing again because of a neck injury.
