Seahawks claim Chargers safety Kevin Ellison

Kevin Ellison, a former USC safety who was waived by the San Diego Chargers on Monday, has been claimed by the Seahawks.

The Seahawks waived rookie defensive end Will Tukuafu from Oregon to make room on the 80-man roster.

Ellison started nine games last year for the Chargers as a rookie, but was released after being arrested with 100 Vicodin pills in his car in May.

Ellison, 23, was pulled over by police in Redondo Beach for speeding in a school zone in the incident, with officers discovering the Vicodin — which is a controlled substance — while searching his vehicle.

Ellison, 6-1 and 221 pounds, made 52 tackles for the Chargers with one sack in 13 games last season. He was a sixth-round draft pick.

He’ll presumably compete for a job at strong safety with the Seahawks, a position where Lawyer Milloy has been working with the starting unit in offseason workouts ahead of Jordan Babineaux and rookie fifth-round draft pick Kam Chancellor.

Ellison was a three-year starter at USC for Carroll, where he built his reputation as a big, physical strong safety who excelled against the run. The Seahawks are looking for that type of strong safety to work in tandem with rookie Earl Thomas, who will fill more of a roaming, pass-coverage center field position at free safety.
