Seahawks Re-Sign CB Roy Lewis, WR Isaiah Stanback

Curtis Crabtree and Danny O'Neill are reporting via Twitter that the Seahawks have re-signed CB Roy Lewis and WR Isaiah Stanback.

Both players are coming off injured reserve.

Roy Lewis was the Seahawks' special-teams captain and a decent replacement for Josh Wilson at the nickelback corner role, with a knack for knocking down some crucial third- and fourth-down pass attempts over the season. He combined for 26 tackles and a sack in the 14 games he played. He was also named the team's Walter/Payton NFL Man of the Year for his off-the-field contributions to the Seattle community. The University of Washington product and former UDFA for the Steelers(!) is 25 and should have plenty left in the tank. Productive signing.

Isaiah Stanback, another former Husky, never got a chance to strut his stuff for Seattle before being IR'd in the preseason. He was drafted in the fourth round in 2007 by the Cowboys and was toyed with by them and the New England Patriots as a backup wide receiver and kick returner. He also played a little QB with the Huskies. Carroll's retainment of this jack-of-all-trades could be significant. Intriguing.

YAY! Seahawks news!!
