The Seattle Seahawks released a pair of former Washington Huskies on Tuesday, as both RB Lavon Coleman and LB Azeem Victor were let go from the team’s practice squad. In a corresponding move, the Seahawks added safety Justin Currie and guard J.J. Dielman to the practice squad.
Victor’s release is likely due in part to K.J. Wright’s return to practice, and could perhaps signal the Seahawks expect good news regarding Mychal Kendricks, as well. Wright practiced for the first time this season on Monday.
J.D. McKissic, meanwhile, did not return to practice on Monday, his first day eligible to do so since being placed on injured reserve at the start of the season. Though McKissic can’t return to the active roster for another two weeks, Coleman’s release could mean McKissic is approaching a return to practice.
Currie, a UDFA in 2015, last played in Cleveland, where he made three appearances for the Browns in 2017. He was released from the team’s injured reserve in early September.
Originally selected in the fifth round by the Bengals in 2017, Dielman was signed off Cincinnati's practice squad by the Broncos towards the end of the 2017 season. Dielman spent the remainder of 2017 and all of the 2018 offseason on Denver’s roster, before being released from the Broncos’ injured reserve in early September, as well.
