KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) _ The injury-depleted Seattle Seahawks signed two linebackers on Tuesday: five-year NFL veteran Terry Killens and training camp player Keith Miller.
Seattle made room on the roster by placing guard Steve Hutchinson and linebacker Chad Brown on injured reserve. Hutchinson broke his leg Sept. 29 against the Vikings and Brown broke a foot Nov. 3 against Washington.
Killens was a third-round draft pick by the Houston Oilers in 1996, playing in all but two games for the Oilers and Tennessee Titans through 2000. He spent last season with the San Francisco 49ers.
After signing with Denver last spring, Killens was released in training camp.
Miller went to the St. Louis Rams as an undrafted free agent in 2000 and was allocated to the Scottish Claymores of NFL Europe. Released by the Rams last year, he signed with Tennessee but was released before the regular season.
He joined the Seahawks for training camp, making six tackles in three preseason games before being waived Aug. 26.
