Stanback, a receiver in the NFL, gives the Seahawks 27 former Pac-10 players, easily an NFL high.
The move, reported by Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com, marks the second time in a week the Seahawks and Patriots have claimed one another's players. New England claimed quarterback Mike Teel off waivers from the Seahawks last week.
Stanback adds to a large group of receivers for Seattle as the team tries to hit on players at the position. One of his former UW teammates, Reggie Williams, has yet to make an impact at the position in offseason practices for Seattle.
