Seahawks sign CB Jeremy Boykins, LB Josh Forrest

In traditional training camp style, the Seahawks made a few player swaps at the back half of their 90-man roster.

Returning to action after an off day on Wednesday, the Seattle Seahawks continued to shuffle the roster by adding defensive depth.

As announced on the team's PR twitter account, the Seahawks officially announced signings of cornerback Jeremy Boykins and linebacker Josh Forrest. To create room for both players on the 90-man roster, Seattle waived safety Alex Carter and tight end Je'Ron Hamm.

Boykins becomes the latest UCF alum to sign with the Seahawks, joining twins Shaquill Griffin and Shaquem Griffin, receiver Brandon Marshall, and safety T.J. Mutcherson. The 6-foot-2, 183 pound defensive back signed with the Titans as an undrafted free agent, eventually landing on the team's practice squad for part of the 2017 season.

Forrest, a 6-foot-3, 249 pound linebacker from Kentucky, entered the league as a sixth-round pick for the Rams in 2016. He recorded nine tackles and a pass defensed in 10 total games, including four starts. The Seahawks signed him to their practice squad last November and after receiving a promotion to the active roster, he suited up for two games before landing on season-ending injured reserve.
