It’s been a busy couple days for the Seattle Seahawks and their 90 man roster. In the last 24 hours, they’ve made 6 roster moves:
- TE Anthony McCoy, who was waived yesterday following his achilles injury, cleared waivers was was placed on the injured reserve. McCoy is unlikely to play in 2013, and will be a free agent next offseason, so getting use of his roster spot for this season made a lot of sense for the Seahawks.
- WR Matt Austin, who was an undrafted free agent, left the team and was subsequently waived. Austin, who was a college teammate of Robert Turbin and Bobby Wagner, was a very long shot to make the team. It is unknown right now why he left the team.
- The Seahawks were awarded DT Michael Brooks off waivers from the Lions. Brooks was an undrafted free agent that the Seahawks had reportedly wanted to sign after the draft, but he went to the Lions instead. The Lions released him, giving the Seahawks a 2nd chance to acquire him.
- The Seahawks signed WR Greg Herd, apparently to replace Austin.
- G Jordan Roussos was released to open up a roster spot for Brooks
- OT Jake Bscherer was signed to fill McCoy’s roster spot.
All of this comes just a couple days after releasing QB Josh Portis and signing WR Justin Veltung. I figured I should throw those in there just in case you missed them.
