The Seattle Seahawks continued adding to their off-season roster by signing former USC punter Tom Malone.

The Seattle Seahawks have signed free agent punter Tom Malone to their off-season roster, Malone's agent, J.R. Rickert, announced on Twitter.

Malone played for Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll at USC, earning first-team All-Pac 10 honors his sophomore and junior seasons, and second-team All-American honors as a sophomore.

Malone entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the San Francisco 49ers in 2006, but was waived prior to training camp. Malone was signed to the New England Patriots' practice squad late in the '06 season, and had a net average of 26.5 yards on two pre-season punts before being waived during the 2007 pre-season.

Out of football that season, Malone resurfaced on the Patriots' practice squad during the 2008 season and spent much of 2009 on the Patriots off-season roster before being released at the start of training camp.

Malone was with the UFL's New York Sentinels last Fall.

The Seahawks signed punter Jon Ryan to a six-year, $9.1 million dollar contract at the conclusion of the 2009 regular season.
