Seahawks released CB Dontae Johnson.

The Seahawks had been stashing Johnson on injured reserve, but apparently he's worked his way back to 100 percent. Johnson was a 16-game starter for the Niners a year ago, though he fared poorly, tying for PFF's worst grade among qualified cornerbacks. Shaquill Griffin and Tre Flowers will continue to work as the Seahawks' starting corners.

Free agent LB Mychal Kendricks visited the Seahawks on Thursday.

The Seahawks are thin at linebacker as they deal with injuries. Kendricks recently pled guilty to federal charges of insider trading and faces up to 25 years in prison. The Seahawks aren't concerned about that as they look for short-term fixes during K.J. Wright's absence.

Seahawks waived OT Rees Odhimabo.

Seattle needed to make room for OL Jordan Simmons and CB Simeon Thomas, who were both claimed off waivers Sunday. Odhiambo drew seven starts last year before the Seahawks finally upgraded by acquiring LT Duane Brown from Houston. He earned PFF's third-worst tackle grade out of 83 qualifiers in 2017.

Patriots claimed WR Amara Darboh off waivers from the Seahawks.

New England also claimed WR Chad Hansen from the Jets. The Patriots were expected to be aggressive on the wire after rostering just three receivers. A third-round pick out of Michigan in 2017, Darboh managed just eight catches for 71 yards as a rookie last year and battled injuries throughout training camp. Still just 24, Darboh is a smart flyer for the receiver-starved Pats.
Sep 2 - 12:48 PM

Seahawks waived CB Mike Tyson, LB, D.J. Alexander, CB Elijah Battle, OT Isaiah Battle, OG Willie Beavers, CB Jeremy Boykins, WR Marvin Bracy, TE Kyle Carter, WR Amara Darboh, LB Josh Forrest, WR Cyril Grayson, C Marcus Henry, RB Gerald Holmes, DT Joey Ivie, FS Lorenzo Jerome, CB Akeem King, RB Daniel Marx, QB Alex McGough, OG Skyler Phillips, LB Jacob Pugh, CB Trovon Reed, WR Keenan Reynolds, OG Jordan Roos, WR Caleb Scott, TE Tyrone Swoopes, RB Justin Stockton, WR Damore’ea Stringfellow, WR Malik Turner and TE Clayton Wilson.

That brings Seattle's roster to 53. The Seahawks also waived/injured DE Ricky Ali’ifua, LB Emmanuel Beal and S T.J. Mutcherson while releasing S Maurice Alexander. QB Austin Davis, OT Jamarco Jones, CB Byron Maxwell and LB Erik Walden have been placed on injured reserve.
Sep 1 - 8:38 PM

Seahawks waived WR Amara Darboh.

The Seahawks talked up Darboh as someone with the potential to take a step forward this season, but he ended up missing most of the summer with hip and collarbone injuries. That was no way to make the team for someone who forced himself onto the field for just 191 snaps as a rookie. The No. 106 overall pick of last year's draft, Darboh is a practice squad candidate.
Sep 1 - 8:15 PM

Seahawks placed QB Austin Davis on injured reserve.

Davis got outplayed by rookie Alex McGough in training camp. He'll likely be released with an injury settlement.
Sep 1 - 4:57 PM

Saints signed WR Tanner McEvoy, formerly of the Seahawks.

McEvoy was just cut by Seattle over the weekend. He's 6'6/230 and can play special teams, but the Saints already look maxed out at the receiver spot.
Aug 29 - 1:00 PM

The Seahawks are working out OG J.R. Sweezy at left guard.

Coach Pete Carroll said the decision was made to move Sweezy so that he could compete with Ethan Pocic. It's also a telling sign the team is comfortable moving forward with D.J. Fluker at RG. As it stands, the Seahawks are projected to start Duane Brown, Pocic, Justin Britt, Fluker, and Germain Ifedi at Denver in Week 1.
Aug 23 - 2:39 PM

Seahawks RB J.D. McKissic (foot) is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks.

McKissic reportedly suffered a Jones' fracture in his foot during practice. Although the Seahawks' backfield was overloaded to begin camp, the absence of both Rashaad Penny (finger) and McKissic opens the door for either C.J. Prosise or Mike Davis to impress and make the 53-man bubble. Chris Carson still appears locked in as the starter with Penny, who will reportedly be ready for Week 1, receiving reps behind him. This is awful timing for McKissic, who was still competing to make the roster.
Aug 21 - 7:10 PM

The Seahawks moved George Fant to compete with Germain Ifedi at right tackle.

"The comp is on," coach Pete Carroll said. "We think he’s ready to compete at that spot. That was our thought the whole time." The club stated only three weeks ago that Fant wouldn't move to right tackle. He had only backed up LT Duane Brown until moving and receiving extensive work on the right side Tuesday. Fant missed all of 2017 with a torn ACL, but Ifedi has performed horrendously at camp. Ifedi's 20 penalties in 2017 were seven more than any other player.
Aug 21 - 6:59 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said Seahawks first-round RB Rashaad Penny (finger) "will be ready" for Week 1.

Carroll definitively stated that both Doug Baldwin (knee) and Penny would be ready for the Seahawks' season opener in Denver. Carroll continued that Penny would "have a chance" to play in Seattle's preseason finale next Thursday, too. Despite being limited, it's a terrific sign the first-rounder returned to practice in pads Tuesday. Assuming Penny is declared active in Week 1, he'll still be working behind Chris Carson.
Aug 21 - 6:45 PM

Jets claimed K Jason Myers off waivers from the Seahawks.

The Jets made room for him by cutting injured WR Jonah Trinnaman. Myers was cut Monday after losing the starting kicker job to Sebastian Janikowski in Seattle. His main competition in New York will come from Texas A&M alum Taylor Bertolet. The Jets are expected to move on from Cairo Santos, who has missed most of the summer with a groin injury.
Aug 21 - 4:33 PM

Free agent OLB Junior Galette will visit the Seahawks on Tuesday.

He also visited the Rams on Sunday. Injured for all of 2015-2016, Galette returned to action last season, recording three sacks on 407 snaps for the Redskins. He would likely receive more reps with the Seahawks than the Rams given Seattle's need for serviceable depth.
Aug 21 - 8:53 AM

Seahawks waived K Jason Myers.

Myers lost the team's kicking competition to veteran Sebastian Janikowski. The 27-year-old has a big leg—his career long is 58 yards—though he's converted just 77.6 percent of his attempts since the start of 2016.
Aug 20 - 4:44 PM

Seahawks released P Jon Ryan.

The 36-year-old had been the Seahawks' punter for the past 10 seasons. "I never wanted this day to come, but knew it would someday," Ryan said in his goodbye message. "I will always be a Seahawk." Ryan probably sensed this was coming after Seattle spent a fifth-round pick on All-American Michael Dickson during April's draft. Despite his mileage, Ryan was still one of the league's better punters last season and shouldn't take long to resurface.
Aug 20 - 1:34 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent DE Marcus Smith is "leaning towards" retirement.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll cited "personal reasons" as the reason for Smith's release last week and now we have a better idea of what he was referring to. Apparently the 26-year-old wasn't fully committed to playing this year. If this it for Smith in the NFL, the former first-rounder will finish his career with 38 tackles and 6.5 sacks over 43 games for the Philadelphia and Seattle.
Aug 20 - 12:46 PM

Falcons signed FB Jalston Fowler, formerly of the Seahawks.

Fowler was among the Seahawks' first training camp cuts last week. In Atlanta, the fullback will be tasked with opening up running lanes for Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman.
Aug 20 - 12:26 PM

According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, the Seahawks offered the Colts a second-round pick for Jacoby Brissett.

Obviously the Colts didn't feel that was enough to move him. The offense struggled with Brissett under center last year, though clearly Indianapolis still views him as an important insurance policy for Andrew Luck, who is coming off a lengthy recovery from shoulder surgery. The 25-year-old completed 6-of-8 passes for 35 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in last week's preseason opener against Seattle.
Aug 19 - 10:23 AM

Seahawks released DE Marcus Smith.

Smith had been absent the past few days due to what coach Pete Carroll described as a "family issue." His release saves the Seahawks roughly $1 million in cap space. Seattle also waived CB Elijah Battle while taking free-agent flyers on DE Erik Walden and RB Justin Stockton.
