One week later, Kevin Ellison joins Seahawks again

Kevin Ellison was gone in an instant last week after the Seattle Seahawks claimed him off waivers from the San Diego Chargers. They dumped him just as fast, saying that he had failed his physical.

Now, Ellison, who played for coach Pete Carroll at USC but is facing scrutiny for a May arrest in which 100 Vicodin pills were discovered in his vehicle, is back with the Seahawks. According to a report, the Seahawks said they had to waive Ellison and allow him to clear waivers in order to sign him to a new contract instead of taking on the one he signed with the Chargers.

We’re not sure exactly why they would want to re-work a deal with minimum salaries but whatever the Seahawks wanted they probably got. Ellison, who started nine games as a rookie, might have a hard time finding any work while his legal situation remains up in the air. He was stopped for speeding in a school zone – never a good idea when driving with drugs in the car – near his California high school in May.
