Seahawks waive WR Nyqwan Murray, sign LB Chris Worley

New, comments
Cincinnati Bengals v Cleveland Browns

On Monday, we learned Bobby Wagner would miss an undisclosed amount of time after having a minor procedure done, with Pete Carroll calling it “something he’s done regularly.” On Tuesday, the Seahawks added to their linebacker group to make up for Wagner’s absence, however long it may be.

Seattle waived UDFA WR Nyqwan Murray, who was signed last Thursday, and signed linebacker Chris Worley. A second-year LB out of Ohio State, Worley was waived by the Bengals last Wednesday when they signed cornerback Tony Lippett.

After going undrafted during the 2018 NFL Draft, Worley signed with Cincinnati and spent the majority of his rookie season on their practice squad. Ahead of Week 16, he was promoted to the active roster and appeared in the Bengals’ final two regular season games.

Per The Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta, Worley is suited up and practicing with the Seahawks on Tuesday, his first day on the roster.
