Pittman also in Seahawks' snapping plans

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

Add Bryan Pittman's name to the list of veteran long snappers headed to Seattle for a free-agent visit with the Seahawks.

Pittman spent the last six seasons snapping for the Texans before becoming an unrestricted free agent. He never missed a game until the NFL suspended Pittman, Deuce McAllister, Will Smith, Kevin Williams, Pat Williams and Charles Grant in a hotly disputed case involving diuretics. All six insisted they had done nothing wrong.

Pittman is making the trip to Seattle with his wife for a visit scheduled to take place Friday, agent Kevin Gold confirmed. Pittman attended Thomas Jefferson High School in Auburn, Wash., and the University of Washington. He joins former Broncos snapper Mike Leach among known candidates for the snapping job in Seattle. Leach is also visiting the Cardinals.

The Seahawks list two snappers on their roster: Ryan Senser and Tyler Schmitt. Jeff Robinson, an unrestricted free agent, handled snapping duties last season. A back injury prevented Schmitt from playing last season while raising questions about his future.
