During the offseason, all NFL teams are allowed to have 90 players on their active roster, a number that the Seattle Seahawks reached yesterday. They got there by wrapping up their short list of 2021 draft signings as they inked fourth-round pick Tre Brown to his rookie contract.
Seahawks just announced that fourth-round pick Tre Brown has signed his contract. So, all three draft picks are under contract, and Seattle has a full roster of 90 players all under contract for 2021.— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) May 21, 2021
About a week ago the Seahawks signed the only other two 2021 draft picks Stone Forsythe and D’Wayne Eskridge to their rookie contracts. On top of that, Seattle signed 13 undrafted free agents in the hours and days following the draft.
Since the roster is now full at 90 players, if the Seahawks want to sign someone they will have to release a player under contract. It is in no way impossible that this could happen as Seattle has 45 players who won't even warrant a dead cap number of $100,000 (According to Over the Cap), so this does not mean anything for the re-sign KJ Wright and/or bring back Richard Sherman crowd. Also according to Over the Cap, the Seahawks have $7,255,001 in cap space now with no obvious cuts that would open up multiple millions more in cap space.
