The Seattle Seahawks reached their mandatory 75-man limit on Tuesday by making seven transactions, the team announced.

On Tuesday, the team made these transactions, according to the team’s official website:

Waived/Injured
DT Michael Brooks
WR David Gilreath
LB Horace Miller

Placed on Injured Reserve
LB Heath Farwell
CB A.J. Jefferson
G C.J. Davis

Placed on Non-Football Injury
CB Eric Pinkins

On Monday, the Seahawks made eight other moves that were among the first transactions from the team on their quest to get to their final 53-man roster, via The Seattle Times.

Seattle officially terminated the contracts of veteran OT Wade Smith and CB Terrell Thomas and waived OT Cory Brandon, RB Demitrius Bronson, S Mike Dobson, DE Jackson Jeffcoat, WR Kevin Smith and CB Thomas Wolfe.

The Seahawks are now officially at 75 men, just ahead of the league’s 1 p.m. deadline on Tuesday.

Unfortunately, they are far from being finished letting players go. They will need to move around 22 other players before Saturday’s NFL deadline of shrinking the team down to 53.

Seattle has their final preseason game on Thursday against the Oakland Raiders.
