The Seahawks finalized their 53-man roster on Saturday. This came after a bunch of moves on Friday. Here’s who made the team and some notes of those who did not.

There were several leaks earlier in the day about Seahawks that were being released. Among them were defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin. Rubin was made expendable by Seattle acquiring Sheldon Richardson. Pierre Desir, Alex Collins, Mike Davis and Joey Hunt were also leaked to be leaving Seattle. At least as far as the active 53-man roster.

So who did make the team? And what will the Seahawks look like to start the 2017 season? These are the players on the roster. (Of course, there still could be changes prior to week one. The NFL is always full of crazy, you know.)
