Aug. 10 (UPI) -- The Seattle Seahawks signed former Ohio State Buckeyes star J.T. Barrett to add depth at quarterback. The Seahawks announced the move Saturday after it was revealed that quarterback Geno Smith needed a cyst removed from his knee. He was competing with Paxton Lynch for the backup job, but now will be sidelined for a week or longer due to the cyst.
