The Seahawks added to their interior line depth on Monday, signing rookie defensive tackle Antonio Valentino. The Seahawks will also get back rookie outside linebacker Tyreke Smith, who passed his physical Monday, allowing him to come off the physically unable to perform list.
Smith, a fifth-round pick out of Ohio State, had been out with a hip injury. He missed the first three practices of camp, but was able to run and work with trainers during the first week of camp, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said.
Valentino, who went undrafted out of Florida this year, initially signed with the New York Giants following the draft, then was waived earlier in the spring. The 6-foot-2, 310-pound Valentino spent his first four years of college at Penn State, appearing in 40 games and recording 51 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss and 6.0 sacks. Valentino joined the Gators as a graduate transfer in 2021, starting eight of 12 games played and recording 23 tackles and three tackles for loss.
