Seahawks Announce Practice Squad


I hope everyone had an enjoyable Labor Day weekend.

The Seahawks were quite busy, trimming the roster down to the final 53. And we’re only two days away from the opening game of the regular season.

After the final roster was completed, Seattle named eight players to its practice squad:
Jamar Adams, safety
Mike Hass, wide receiver
Roy Lewis, cornerback
Devin Moore, running back
Logan Payne, wide receiver
Blake Schlueter, offensive line
Kyle Williams, offensive tackle
Thomas Williams, linebacker

It was nice to see Devin Moore clear waivers and find a spot on the practice squad. Moore showed good running ability during the preseason, and his flashy style convinced several fans he was deserving of more carries.

Kyle Williams, who started two games for the Seahawks last season, cleared waivers after he was replaced on the roster by tackle Brandon Frye. Williams provided good depth at the position, but the team opted to go another direction. Either way, it is good that Williams is on the practice squad.

In addition to Williams and Moore, Seattle also kept three other players who were with the team during training camp: Jamar Adams, Mike Hass, and Logan Payne.

Blake Schlueter is a rookie offensive lineman from Texas Christian. He was waived by the Denver Broncos and added to Seattle’s practice squad. Schlueter saw playing time against Seattle in the preseason, and offers versatility along the interior of the offensive line. Schlueter was selected in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft.

Thomas Williams is a linebacker who comes to Seattle after spending a season with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Williams, 24 years old, was a fifth-round draft pick in 2008 out of Southern Cal. In college, he was an extremely versatile player and excelled on special teams.

Roy Lewis is a familiar name to a lot of fans in Seattle, playing his college ball at the University of Washington. Lewis spent one season with the Pittsburgh Steelers after making the team as an undrafted free agent. He is an extremely physical defensive back, and should provide good depth as a member of the practice squad.
