RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks have made a significant addition to their wide receiver group by agreeing to a one-year deal with Phillip Dorsett.

In 2019 with New England, the 27-year-old caught 29 passes for 397 yards and five touchdowns.  He was taken by the Colts with the 29th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft

Dorsett addresses another need for Seattle, providing depth and additional speed on the outside for quarterback Russell Wilson. Dorsett is likely to compete with David Moore, Malik Turner and John Ursua for the No. 3 spot in Seattle’s offense. 

The starters are expected to be Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf.
