The Seattle Seahawks have announced the signing of seventh round pick Cameron Morrah, a tight end from the University of California whom the Seahawks chose with the 248th pick of the 2009 NFL Draft.
Morrah has signed a four-year deal worth $1.79 million dollars, including what NorthwestFootball.net has confirmed includes a signing bonus of just over $40,500.
After red-shirting his freshman season at Cal, Morrah backed up current Tennessee Titans tight end Craig Stevens in 2006 and 2007. Morrah moved into the starting lineup in 2008, starting 13 games and finishing the season with 27 receptions, 326 yards and a team-high 8 touchdowns.
Morrah finished his college career with 41 receptions, 484 yards and 10 touchdowns in 33 career games. He is expected to compete with Joe Newton and John Tereshinski for the team's third tight end position.
With Morrah signed, the Seahawks now have four (Mike Teel, Courtney Greene, Nick Reed) of their seven draft choices under contract. Still unsigned are first round linebacker Aaron Curry, second round center Max Unger, and third round wide receiver Deon Butler.
