Last week the Seattle Seahawks announced the signing of five undrafted free agents, including quarterback Anthony Gordon, receiver Aaron Fuller, tackle Tommy Champion, edge rusher Eli Mencer and cornerback Debione Renfro. The team followed up that UDFA haul by announcing the signing of twelve more undrafted free agents on Monday. The twelve new names are:

  • DT Josh Avery of Southeast Missouri
  • RB Patrick Carr of Houston
  • WR Seth Dawkins of Louisville
  • CB Gavin Heslop of Stony Brook
  • RB Anthony Jones of Florida International
  • DT Cedrick Lattimore of Iowa
  • TE Tyler Mabry of Maryland
  • FS Chris Miller of Baylor
  • FS Josh Norwood of West Virginia
  • CB Kemah Siverand of Oklahoma State
  • DE Marcus Webb of Troy and
  • TE Dominick Wood-Anderson of Tennessee.

In order to make room on the roster, the Seahawks released four players. Those who were released in order to create room on the roster were:

  • DT Nazair Jones
  • RB Adam Choice
  • DT Shakir Soto and
  • LB Pita Taumoepenu

The release of Jones means that two of the four third round picks the Seahawks made in 2017 are no longer with the team. Of the 2017 draft class, only Ethan Pocic, Shaquill Griffin, Lano Hill, David Moore and Chris Carson remain with Seattle just three years after being drafted. Already gone are Malik McDowell, Amara Darboh, Tedric Thompson, Mike Tyson and Justin Senior, along with the newly released Jones.

The moves Monday bring the roster to a full 90 players, giving the team a full squad heading into training camp should the front office prove to be finished making moves this offseason.
