With the 2019 NFL preseason in the books, the next step for all 32 teams is to trim their respective rosters from 90 to 53 players. Most teams have already begun that process as early as Friday. For the Seattle Seahawks, we will keep a close eye on the roster battles at running back, wide receiver, linebacker, and cornerback. Notable guys on the bubble include WR Gary Jennings Jr, LB Shaquem Griffin, RBs C.J. Prosise and J.D. McKissic. We’ve already seen QB Paxton Lynch get waived, so the Seahawks will roll with Geno Smith as Russell Wilson’s backup.

This is the place for updates over the next two days on cuts, trades, rumors of trades or cuts, and other important news pertaining to the Seahawks roster as we approach the start of the regular season.
