NFL: Seattle Seahawks-Training Camp Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks must get down to 75 players by 1 PM PST on Tuesday. They have already announced some moves and should have the rest in well before the deadline.

  • Brandon Browner, CB/S — The experiment just didn’t work out. Browner is really not a very good corner anymore, so to put him out there at a new position and to expect high-quality results out there may have been too much. This move bodes well for: Tyvis Powell.
  • Sealver Siliga, DT — The vet was supposed to land a job as the team needed to replace Brandon Mebane and they couldn’t rely on the health of Jordan Hill. But with Hill currently healthy and Siliga missing all but one day of camp, plus the advancement of a couple of other DTs and the signing of Tony McDaniel, this was an easier decision for Carroll than we thought it would be. Siliga was placed on injured reserve rather than being outright released. This move bodes well for: Jordan Hill.
  • Montario Hunter, WR — Hunter turned some heads during camp but it became an extremely competitive position and he didn’t look great in the preseason games. This move bodes well for: Antwan Goodley.
  • Deshon Foxx, WR — He started off camp on a high note but injuries sadly killed his opportunities. Foxx was technically “waived/injured.” This move bodes well for: Foxx, since he should revert to IR after passing through waivers.
  • Kristjan Sokoli, G/C — Noted SPARQ King, Sokoli tested higher at the combine than perhaps any player in the event’s history. But all that athleticism didn’t seem to help him transition from DT to center or guard successfully. I think the team will try hard to keep him around and get him on the practice squad. This move bodes well for: Jahri Evans.
  • Kyle Coleman, FB/LB — Coleman seemed to be making progress as a linebacker but Pete Carroll moved him back to fullback (his position at the start of the summer) after they didn’t like what they saw in their other FBs. But they didn’t love what Coleman did either and signed Will Tukuafu, sealing Coleman’s fate. This move bodes well for: Will Tukuafu.
  • DeAngelo Tyson, DT — The vet was a seventh round pick of the Ravens in 2012. He was released with an injury settlement last year and then signed to a future contract with the Seahawks in January. This move bodes well for: Brandin Bryant.
  • Zac Brooks, RB - The Seahawks are releasing Brooks, their seventh round pick this year out of Clemson. He was also off to a good start in camp, but injuries allowed for the team to sign Troymaine Pope, who played well enough as to make Brooks an afterthought. He’s a good practice squad candidate, as I can’t imagine a ton of teams jumping to give Brooks a roster spot. This move bodes well for: Pope.
  • Patrick Lewis, C — The team couldn’t find a trade partner for Lewis and released him Tuesday. This saves $1.67 million against the cap.
  • As of Tuesday at 1 PM PST, the Seahawks have also released George Farmer, Trovon Reed, Pete Robertson, Quayshawn Nealy, Kevin Smith, and Josh Shirley. More info on those players here.
