Damarious Randall re-signed with the Seattle Seahawks on Friday, however he’ll be playing a different position in the upcoming season.

The Seahawks did not divulge the terms of the contract for Randall, who will be a cornerback in 2021 after spending his three previous seasons as a safety. He spent his first three NFL campaigns as a cornerback while playing with the Green Bay Packers.

Randall’s switch to cornerback comes on the heels of Shaquill Griffin and Quinton Dunbar leaving the team in free agency. D.J. Reed, Tre Flowers and free-agent addition Ahkello Witherspoon are listed as cornerbacks with the Seahawks.

Randall, 28, recorded three tackles in 10 games last season while playing primarily on special teams.

He has 293 tackles, 14 interceptions and two fumble recoveries in 75 career games (56 starts) with the Packers, Cleveland Browns and Seahawks since being selected by Green Bay with the 30th overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.
