Barely 48 hours after the Seahawks cut their roster to 53 players, the team has already reworked multiple position groups as they’ve churned the roster and worked the system in order to get Ed Dickson on IR and acquire Jadeveon Clowney from the Houston Texans. Monday has been a busy day for the Seattle front office, with the team bringing Jaron Brown back after moving Dickson to injured reserve, and now the team has filled the empty spot on the roster created by the waiving of Austin Calitro.

Bellore, of course, is not the normal fullback, as of the 16 games he has started over the last three seasons, twelve of those starts came at linebacker for both the San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions in 2016 and 2017, respectively. In addition, as a core member of the special teams units of the teams he has played for, there is no doubt that he’ll be able to contribute to the Seahawks revamped special teams groups as well.
In any case, the roster is again back to 53, and hopefully now it’s time to focus on the Week 1 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals rather than the churning of the roster that has filled the news the past few days.
