Kirkland, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks have signed Aggie defensive tackle Red Bryant to a multi-year contract.

The Hawks also inked defensive end Lawrence Jackson and fullback Owen Schmitt to multi-year deals.

Seattle also signed free agent receiver Bryan Gilmore, formerly of the San Francisco 49ers.

Jackson was drafted 28th overall in the first round out of USC, Bryant was drafted in the fourth round (121st overall) out of Texas A&M.

Bryant, from Jasper, Texas, joined Jacob Green, Sam Adams and Rocky Bernard as A&M defensive linemen chosen by the Seahawks over the years.

Schmitt was drafted in the fifth round (163rd overall) out of West Virginia in this year's NFL Draft.

Gilmore entered the league in 2000 as a rookie free agent with Arizona and spent four years with the Cardinals before spending two years each with the Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers. He has 53 career receptions for 794 yards and five touchdowns.

Seattle now has six of its seven draft picks under contract. Second round tight end John Carlson remains unsigned.
