Seahawks Cut Down to 53

New, comments

It took them a while but the Seahawks finally released a list of the cuts, PUPs and IRs they made to reach the 53-man roster. Per Seahawks.com:

Placed on injured reserve (3): TE John Carlson (shoulder), WR Isaiah Stanback (hamstring), DL Jimmy Wilkerson (knee)

Placed on Reserve/PUP (3): WR Deon Butler (leg), CB Roy Lewis (knee), TE Cameron Morrah (toe)

Waived/injured (1): DE Pierre Allen (hamstring) (this is the same as IR but Piere Allen has to pass waivers as he does not have four accrued seasons, similar to Konz last season)

Released (20): FB Dorson Boyce, WR Chris Carter, RB Thomas Clayton, DT Colin Cole, CB Kennard Cox, OG Paul Fanaika, DL Maurice Fountain, OL Mike Gibson, DE David Howard, LB Michael Johnson, LB/DE Jameson Konz, FS Mark LeGree, WR Ricardo Lockette, LB Mike Morgan, S Josh Pinkard, OT William Robinson, DE A.J. Schable, WR Owen Spencer, RB Vai Taua, WR Patrick Williams

Colin Cole is a slight surprise though he was making too much money for what he brings to the team, and the FO already showed they don't like that. He might be back once healthy and at a lower salary. Josh Pinkard is mildly surprising since he seemed to be an early favorite for the Babineaux spot. Mark LeGree is the only draft pick from this year to be waived, and not a hugely surprising one, as a small-school project he has a ways to go. Let's hope no one feels like investing a roster spot in him, so we can practice squad him. Mike Gibson has played well as a backup at center and guard, so that's a mystifying cut.

Current 53-man roster after the jump. This will see a lot of changes before game day, as we pick up other teams' leavings.
