Seahawks 16-man practice squad takes shape for 2020

These are the player who will make up the Seahawks 2020 practice squad.

NFL practice squads expanded to 16 for 2020. The Seahawks and other teams were able to keep more than the normal 10 players due to all the mess surrounding COVID-19. NFL teams can also keep 55 players active on game days by bringing two players off the practice squad each week.

This means that two of the players named to the practice squad could actually be part of the week one roster and have a significant impact. Shaquem Griffin was re-signed, for instance, and he could help with the pass rush immediately. Or possibly defensive tackle Cedrick Lattimore provides needed depth on the interior of the defensive line.

Seattle did keep one quarterback on the practice squad but it wasn’t Anthony Gordon so a lot of Washington State fans are probably disappointed. But one Washington Husky made it on the practice squad, so that is good.

So who will be on the Seattle Seahawks 2020 practice squad?

Side note: No Seahawks released on Saturday were claimed by other teams but all players released can be signed to practice squads of other teams should that team and player agree to a deal. Thankfully, Shaquem Griffin was not a player that 12s will have to watch play elsewhere (and probably get like 5 sacks this season).
