The Seattle Seahawks announced their initial 10-man practice squad on Monday, but now it looks like they’re already on the verge of making another tweak.

ESPN’s Brady Henderson reports that Seattle is looking to re-sign defensive end Branden Jackson, who was waived on Sunday to make room for cornerback Simeon Thomas. Jackson went unclaimed, paving the way for any team to pick him up.

Jackson was signed to the Seahawks practice squad in 2017, but was soon activated to the 53-man roster and played in 12 games. He had a pass defensed and a 0.5 sack against the San Francisco 49ers. He almost had a fumble recovery for a touchdown against Washington, but Kirk Cousins was ruled down by contact before losing the football.

Obviously with the Seahawks having already formed their practice squad, that means someone has to be dropped in order for Jackson to be signed. Seattle only has three defensive players on the practice squad right now - DT Frank Herron, LB Antoine Williams, and CB Akeem King.
