Yesterday the Seahawks signed C/G Jason Spitz to help shore up the depth in the interior of the offensive line. Spitz is an 8th year veteran out of Louisville who was drafted by the Packers in 2006. Spitz started 45 games for the Packers between 2006 and 2009 and hasn’t started a game since.
This appears to be a very small addition, probably based on Schneider’s familiarity with Spitz. The versatile veteran is unlikely to see much or any time unless the Seahawks offensive line is hit by a serious injury bug.
That being said, Spitz doesn’t seem like the worst guy to have around, especially given the somewhat fragile state of this offensive line. The Seahawks are in more trouble at guard than tackle at the moment but given that McQuistan has shifted over to left tackle the depth behind the two guards was getting rather thin.
Spitz will wear number 65 with the Seahawks should he see game action. He most recently played with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2011, appearing in ten games.
