Roundup: Seahawks agree to terms with veteran CB Pierre Desir

Pierre Desir has found a new home.

The veteran cornerback has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported.

A fourth-round pick of the Browns out of Lindenwood in 2014, the small-school product got off to a slow start before finding his footing in Indianapolis. Desir thrived with the Colts, intercepting four passes and recording 19 passes defensed between 2018 and 2019. He departed as a cap-related release in 2020, signing with the Jets and playing in nine games before New York waived him and the Ravens scooped him up off the wire.

Seattle is Desir's sixth team, although it's not his first brush with the Seahawks. Desir was on Seattle's practice squad from late 2016 through 2017 training camp, but was released as part of final roster cuts. His fateful pairing with the Colts soon followed.

Approaching 31-years-old in September, it's fair to wonder what Desir has left in the tank. He proved he can be a quality corner in the right scheme, but isn't a standalone shutdown defender. Desir is a depth addition in Seattle, where the Seahawks might be wondering if they can tap into what they'd missed out on the first time around.

Elsewhere around the NFL on Wednesday:

  • The San Francisco 49ers are signing ex-Raiders defensive end Arden Key to a one-year deal, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports, per a source. The team also announced the signing of ex-Giants running back Wayne Gallman to a one-year deal.
  • Los Angeles Rams cornerback Darious Williams signed his first-round restricted free-agent tender, per the NFL's transaction wire. Williams, 27, snagged a career-high four interceptions, 44 tackles and 14 passes defensed in 2020.
