The Seahawks have begun to round out their practice squad, after a couple moves left them with open slots on the 10-man unit. On Wednesday afternoon, shortly after Adrian Colbert’s promotion to the 53 was announced, it was reported Seattle would add Malik Carney to the practice squad.

Carney, in essence, will be replacing Jachai Polite, who was unable to make the most of his second chance in the NFL, being released after just a few weeks with the club. Though not particularly athletic, Carney put up great numbers in his final year at North Carolina, with 6.5 sacks, 12.5 tackles for loss and five forced fumbles.
After going undrafted in this spring’s draft, Carney signed with the Lions as an undrafted free agent. The former Tar Heel made it all the way through camp and preseason before getting cut as Detroit shrank their roster from 90 to 53.
