After signing tight end Ed Dickson on Friday afternoon, the Seattle Seahawks appear to have reached deals with two new free agent additions.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Seahawks have agreed to terms with former Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Jaron Brown. Additionally, former Los Angeles Rams safety Maurice Alexander posted a photo on Twitter signing a contract with the team on Friday night.

The addition of Brown give Seattle a veteran option at wide receiver to hell quell the loss of Paul Richardson in free agency. Richardson signed with the Washington Redskins on Thursday.

Brown is coming off the most productive season of his five-year tenure with the Cardinals. He made eight starts for Arizona and caught 31 passes for 477 yards and four touchdown. All three marks are career-highs. He has appeared in 71 of a possible 80 games over his five years in the desert, compiling 86 catches for 1,177 yards and nine touchdowns.

Alexander started 14 games for the Rams in 2016, recording 50 tackles, a sack and two interceptions. However, he was released by the team after just four games last year. He appeared in 41 career games for the St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams over the span of four seasons. He recorded 113 career tackles with three sacks and two interceptions.

Alexander was a college teammate of Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner for one year at Utah State.
