Following reports earlier Wednesday that the Seattle Seahawks were adding both Damon “Snacks” Harrison and DeMarkus Acy to the practice squad, the team confirmed the moves it was making in a press release. In total the team announced six moves, the first two of which included the signings of Acy and Harrison to the practice squad.
The four additional moves by the Seahawks included:
- moving special teams captain Neiko Thorpe to injured reserve
- signing DE Jonathan Bullard to the 53 man roster from the practice squad of the Arizona Cardinals,
- releasing WR Lance Lenoir from the practice squad and
- signing LB Michael Divinity to the practice squad.
The addition of Bullard could be a bad sign when it comes to the potential of Rasheem Green returning this season, as Bullard is of the build that the team tends to look for from its five tech defensive ends. The former third round pick of the Chicago Bears has never shown much in terms of pass rush on the field in the NFL, recording just 3.5 sacks in four NFL seasons, including a career best 1.5 sacks during the 2019 season with the Cardinals. However, he does give the team depth behind L.J. Collier for at least however long Green remains unavailable.
Signing Divinity could be the team looking to replace the pass rush potential lost when Bruce Irvin went down with a knee injury. Divinity had three sacks in a five-game injury shortened 2019 season for the National Champion LSU Tigers in 2019, and it’s possible he could potentially provide some situational pass rush snaps for the Hawks down the stretch this season.
In any case, it’s been a busy day for the Seahawks front office as the team prepares for it’s Week 5 game against the Minnesota Vikings.
