RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- Former St. Louis linebacker David Vobora has agreed to a contract with the Seattle Seahawks.
Seattle announced the signing on Monday. To clear a roster spot, Seattle released running back Vai Taua.
Vobora was the final pick of the 2008 draft out of Idaho. He went on to play 34 games with St. Louis including 16 starts. Vobora had 97 tackles -- including 24 on special teams -- during his three seasons with St. Louis.
He'll add depth to a linebackers group that saw David Hawthorne shift inside and Leroy Hill step in at outside linebacker after Lofa Tatupu was released earlier this month. Vobora was waived by the Rams on Aug. 12.
