The Seattle Seahawks made some transactions on Tuesday, as Pete Carroll is often wont to do, adding four players to the practice squad and releasing two others. The Seahawks had two open spaces already, so that’s the reason for the uneven shift.

Seattle is releasing cornerback Parry Nickerson and linebacker Mike Carney. The Seahawks are adding safety Adrian Colbert, tight end Tyrone Swoopes, tackle Chad Wheeler, and cornerback Brian Allen.

Colbert was recently released from the 53-man roster after adding a couple players last week. He’s now back where they really want him, as coaches have been effusive in praise for the potential of Colbert but obviously not enough to fully protect him.

Swoopes first signed with Seattle after the draft in 2017 and has been off and on the practice squad many times over. He has not played in another organization besides the Seahawks in spite of this. With the injury to tight end Will Dissly, it gives them an emergency option should they need a tight end again, though Jacob Hollister was added to the 53-man roster and Ed Dickson is eligible to return soon.

Nickerson was a sixth round pick of the Jets in 2018 and was traded to Seattle for a conditional seventh round pick.
