The full list of players placed on waivers by the Seahawks on Saturday can be found below.

The Seahawks vacated five roster spots with a handful of anticipated moves, as Colby Parkinson, Darrell Taylor, and D.J. Reed go on the NFI list, Rashaad Penny on the PUP list, and Kyle Fuller to the suspended list.

WR Lance Lenoir, signed earlier in the week with injuries limiting the number of receivers available to the Hawks has been released.

WR Penny Hart has reportedly been waived, after spending time on the Seahawks’ practice squad in 2019.

Jayson Stanley, who went from cornerback to wide receiver back to cornerback during camp, has reportedly been waived.

This report courtesy of Rob Rang means in addition to Anthony Gordon, Aaron Fuller, and Tyler Mabry, the following players have been waived: Tommy Champion, Cedrick Lattimore, Debione Renfro, Gavin Heslop, and Chris Miller.

The Seahawks reportedly released Paul Richardson, just a few days after bringing him back to Seattle.

Former Husky WR Aaron Fuller has been waived, per Michael-Shawn Dugar.

QB Anthony Gordon has been waived but like Danny Etling, could end up on the practice squad.

The Seahawks have reportedly cut undrafted free agent tight end Tyler Mabry.

The first surprise cut of the weekend, as Shaquem Griffin has reportedly been waived.

QB Danny Etling, who Seattle claimed off waivers during training camp, has reportedly been waived but could return to the team’s practice squad.

P.J. Johnson, a late signing after injuries to Jarran Reed and Poona Ford early in training camp, has been waived per Brady Henderson.

The Seahawks will reportedly waive WR Cody Thompson, who had a bright camp before getting injured.

Reports have Seattle waiving safety Ryan Neal

The Seahawks have waived seventh-round pick Stephen Sullivan, with the hope of signing him to the practice squad on Sunday.

OT Chad Wheeler, who played for offensive line coach Mike Solari in New York, is reported to have been released. He spent much of the 2019 season on the Seattle practice squad and there’s no reason to think the team won’t try to add him to the practice squad this year.
