The Seahawks formally announced the addition of quarterback J.P. Losman Wednesday, then made it clear he's the No. 3 quarterback on the team by waiving Mike Teel from the active roster.
Teel, 24, was a sixth-round pick by Seattle in 2009. He served as the team's No. 3 quarterback last season, but did not appear in a game.
Losman is a former first-round pick who played his first five seasons in Buffalo. He began last season playing in the UFL and later signed with the Oakland Raiders.
In addition to Losman, Seattle also signed tight end Michael Allan, who attended Interlake High School and then Whitworth. Allan was a seventh-round pick in 2007 and spent that season with the Kansas City Chiefs. He has not appeared in an NFL game the past two seasons.
Seattle released wide receiver Victor James and tight end Patrick Devenny.
Losman signed a one-year contract for $630,000, The Associated Press reported.
