Stephens was signed to the Seahawks active roster Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Stephens has spent the first two weeks of the season on Seattle's practice squad, but with Marquise Blair (knee) out for the year, the Seahawks are in need of depth at the safety position. Stephens should slot in behind starters Jamal Adams and Quandre Diggs and play a special teams role going forward.
