RENTON, Wash. -- Coach Pete Carroll says the Seahawks are "seriously" considering signing former NFL first-round draft picks Mike Williams and Reggie Williams.

Carroll said at the conclusion of the wide receivers' three-day minicamp tryout Thursday that each was in good shape and was enticing because of his size.

Mike Williams starred for Carroll at USC before the Detroit Lions drafted him 10th overall in 2005. The 6-foot-5 Williams then ballooned to 270 pounds. He has been out of the league for two years.

Reggie Williams was the ninth overall pick by Jacksonville in 2004. He played three seasons for the Jaguars but remained unsigned through all of last season. The 6-4 former Washington Husky pleaded guilty to a drug charge last year and received probation.
