Seattle Seahawks sign Geno Smith to one-year deal as Russell Wilson's backup.

SEATTLE, Wash. – 16 offensive lineman just didn’t seem like enough. On Monday, the Seahawks added former 2018 first-round draft pick Kahlil McKenzie, and center Joey Hunt signed his restricted free agent tender.

Hunt’s signature keeps him paid by the Seahawks for another season. McKenzie was a defensive lineman in college at the University of Tennessee, but was converted to the offensive line in the NFL. He also played in this year’s XFL.

The two signings bring Seattle’s total offensive lineman count to 18.

On Thursday, they have one first-round draft pick in the virtual 2020 NFL draft, eight picks total. Coverage beings on 4 News Now at 5 p.m. The draft ends on Saturday.
