The Seahawks announced on Saturday that they signed wide receiver Bryan Walters from the practice squad and released center Jason Spitz.

Walters has played in four games in his NFL career, all four of which came in 2011 with the San Diego Chargers. In those games, he had three receptions for 27 yards.

The Kirkland, Wash. native played four exceptional years of football at Cornell University.

He holds the all-time record for most all-purpose yards in Cornell history with 5,794 yards, shattering the previous mark of 5,117 yards set by Cornell Hall of Famer Chad Levitt in 1996.

In Walters’ four-year career at Cornell, he caught 144 passes for 2,032 yards and 12 touchdowns. His specialty, however was returning punts and kickoffs.

He returned a total of 129 kickoffs for 2,790 yards and 108 punts for 972 yards and had one career kickoff  and one punt returned for a touchdown.

He will be listed as the fifth receiver on the Seahawks depth chart behind Sidney Rice, Golden Tate, Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse, respectively.
