SEATTLE -- The Seattle Seahawks Wednesday acquired veteran defensive end Darrell Irvin on waivers from the Buffalo Bills.
Irvin, entering his fourth pro season, played in all nine games last year for the Bills as a reserve defensive end and special teams performer.
He is the second Buffalo player picked up by the Seahawks since Coach Chuck Knox moved from the Bills to Seattle in the off-season. Earlier, the Seahawks acquired 12-year veteran Reggie McKenzie, who will start for Seattle at left guard.
To make room for Irvin on their 49-man roster, the Seahawks placed rookie defensive end Junior Poles of Boston College on waivers. The release of Poles reduced the number of rookies on Seattle's regular season roster to five.
