Practice Squad Changes


According to a report from Danny O’Neil’s Seahawks blog, the Seahawks have cut running back Devin Moore and linebacker Thomas Williams from their practice squad.

Devin Moore became a fan favorite because of his unique style of running during the preseason. He flashed good speed and maneuverability, and showed off a unique collection of juke moves. But the undrafted rookie from Wyoming was unable to beat out Justin Forsett for the final running back spot.

During the preseason, Moore averaged only three yards per carry, but led the Seahawks with 45 carries and 136 yards on the ground.

As a replacement, the Seahawks have signed former University of Washington running back Louis Rankin to the practice squad. Rankin was previously a member of the Oakland Raiders.

For those who don’t remember Rankin at the University of Washington, they should recall his 45-yard touchdown run against Seattle during the preseason.

Rankin was primarily used on special teams with Oakland this season. He returned six kicks for 108 yards, good for an 18-yard average.

The Seahawks have yet to announce any other signings, but still have one practice squad spot open.
