NFL: Preseason-Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Seattle Seahawks can begin assembling their practice squad on Sunday: 10 players, signings can begin at 10 AM PST. We’ll keep this updated as news comes out about who those players will be.

As of 6:10 PM PST, these are 9 of the known practice squad players:

  • Marcus Lucas, TE, Robert Myers, G, Jordan Tripp, LB, Tylor Harris, DE, Kasen Williams, WR, Kenny Lawler, WR, Kasen Williams, WR, Kache Palacio, LB, Will Pericak, OL

As of 1:45 PM PST, these are 5 of the 10 known practice squad players:

  • Marcus Lucas, TE, Robert Myers, G, Jordan Tripp, LB, Tylor Harris, DE, Kasen Williams, WR

  • The Seahawks have waived Justin Hamilton in favor of the newly-signed Garrison Smith.
  • Marcus Burley, CB, has been claimed by the Browns.
  • Troymaine Pope to the Jets.
  • The Seahawks have claimed DT Garrison Smith from the 49ers.
  • That should be the end of the claims.
  • Jordan Hill, Eric Pinkins, Terry Poole, and Joe Sommers cleared waivers and will revert to the Seattle IR. It’s not impossible for any to reach injury settlement, return later. Hill a good candidate.
  • The Seahawks have added guard Robert “Snacks” Myers to the practice squad. He’s 6’5, 330 lbs, and was a fifth round pick of the Ravens in 2015.
  • The team has also added TE Marcus Lucas, formerly of the Panthers, Dolphins, and Bears. He’s 6’4, 250 lbs, and played at Missouri. For now it seems they prefer him over Clayton Echard or Joe Sommers.
  • Seahawks add LB Jordan Tripp to practice squad, was with the Jaguars.
  • DE Tylor Harris, waived by Seahawks on Saturday, is returning to the practice squad.
  • WR Kasen Williams is on the practice squad.

Among the Seahawks cuts on Saturday who we may still be hearing from are:

(NOTE: These are not players who have been signed to the practice squad yet, these are players who were released who could feasibly come back. But just because I didn’t list a person here, it doesn’t mean that they can’t come back.)

  • Kenny Lawler, WR - Seventh round pick out of Cal noted for his great hands was also known for being quite thin and wiry. Seattle needed a receiver who was more noted as a blocker and special teams contributor for the five spot, but Lawler could still come back if they need a pass-catcher.
  • Zac Brooks, RB - Also a seventh round pick, Brooks worked out for the Chiefs on Saturday.
  • Joe Sommers and Clayton Echard, TE - I think Seattle will need to have an extra tight end around.
  • Kasen Williams and Kevin Smith, WR - Two players who proved you can still play in the NFL later in the year, even if you get cut in September or August.
  • Antwan Goodley, WR - Was looking good prior to the final preseason game.
  • Brandin Bryant, DT - Another tough cut, the athletic big man had a lot of hustle in the preseason but may still be a little ways off from contributing at the NFL level. Would be a nice project to keep around on the PS.
  • Kache Palacio, LB - The WSU Cougars alum came on strong in the last couple preseason games and could still have a future in the NFL.
  • Tye Smith, CB - A fifth round pick out of Towson in 2015, teams may show interest in Smith just for being a Seattle CB alum.
  • Keenan Lambert, S - The team kept seven safeties, but not Lambert. He was cut last year but stuck around on the Raiders before coming back to the Seahawks. He could still have a future in Seattle.
