Seahawks Release CB Marcus Brown, Re-Sign FB Dorson Boyce

The Seahawks got a little itchy and started getting the shakes from withdrawals so they broke down and made some more roster moves today, releasing CB Marcus Brown and re-signing UW undrafted free agent Dorson Boyce, per a gaggle of beat writers on Twitter. 

Brown had been with the team since the beginning of last season, when he was signed as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas State. He showed enough promise to stick on the practice squad all of last season but with the additions of several new defensive backs in this year's Draft and a few in rookie free agency, Brown becomes the odd man out.

This transaction preserves the strange journey that Dorson Broyce is on, courtesy of the Seahawks. Boyce was a virtual unknown even on his college team but apparently caught the eye of Seahawks scouts while they were watching Jake Locker work out this spring. I guess. (Boyce caught passes from Locker at his Pro Day)

Anyway, Boyce rejoins the team and will battle for a roster spot with incumbent Michael Robinson and fellow UDFA rookie Ryan Travis. Also in the mix are Thomas Clayton and Vai Taua, though the latter two are running backs that could maybe play fullback and not the other way around. We'll see.
