The Seattle Seahawks brought back cornerback DeShawn Shead, who started 22 career games for the team before playing last season with the Detroit Lions.

He will be on a one-year, minimum contract, according to ESPN.

Shead, 30, was with the Seahawks from 2012 to 2017, promoted from the practice squad late in his second year. After helping on special teams and being a versatile backup in the secondary, his best season came in 2016, when he started all 15 games in which he played, making 80 tackles and intercepting a pass.

He has two career interceptions in 66 games (23 starts).

The Seahawks also signed linebacker Jawuan Johnson, an undrafted rookie out of TCU, on Saturday. Seattle waived wide receiver Caleb Scott with a non-football injury designation, and placed linebacker Emmanuel Ellerbee on injured reserve.
