Blackmon Leaves Seahawks For Colts

The Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday signed free agent strong safety Robert Blackmon, the second member of the Seattle Seahawks’ defensive backfield they have signed this year.

The Colts also released veteran strong safety David Tate on Tuesday.

Blackmon, a seven-year veteran selected by the Seahawks in the second round of the 1990 NFL draft, started every game the last six seasons.

Blackmon, who was third on the team last season with 102 tackles, had two interceptions and one sack. Terms of Blackmon’s deal were not announced.

In March, the Colts also signed free agent defensive back Carlton Gray from the Seahawks.

The San Diego Chargers signed quarterback Jim Everett to a one-year contract Tuesday and released Sean Salisbury, who backed up Stan Humphries in 1996.
