The Seahawks on Wednesday signed former Washington receiver Kevin Smith, filling the roster spot created the day before when they released defensive tackle Andru Pulu.

Smith was Washington’s leading receiver as a senior in 2013 with 50 catches for 765 yards, a year in which he was fully healthy after having suffered an ACL injury before the 2011 Alamo Bowl.

The Seahawks are Smith’s third team. He was signed and released by Arizona shortly after not being selected in the NFL draft, then later signed and released by Jacksonville.

Smith becomes the 13th receiver on the Seahawks’ roster, and figures to also be tried on some special teams — he led the Huskies with 38 kickoff returns for 958 yards in 2011.

The signing of Smith means the Seahawks are again at the NFL roster limit of 90.

On Tuesday, Seattle released Pulu, a defensive tackle who played at Federal Way High and spent one year at UW before finishing his career at Eastern Washington.
