Seahawks taking look at ex-Ram Barron

RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks handed out a roster featuring 48 rookies and first-year players attending a three-day camp beginning Friday, some as signed players and others on a tryout basis.

There were also a few veterans on the list, including former St. Louis Rams first-round choice Alex Barron.

Barron, who played most recently for Dallas, is in Seahawks camp on a tryout basis.

Seattle is listing 54 players overall on its weekend participation list. Tight end Shawn Nelson is another veteran on the list.

It's debatable whether Barron could help an NFL team at this point. He'll at least get a chance to show the Seahawks.
