Monday the Seattle Seahawks worked out a half dozen players, and on Tuesday made a pair of transactions and moved to sign two of the players who participated in the tryout Monday.
The @Seahawks made four roster transactions this morning. https://t.co/GO4kDifm82— Seahawks PR (@seahawksPR) August 10, 2021
The two players the team signed this morning are offensive lineman Lukayus McNeil and wide receiver Anthony Ratliff-Williams. McNeil, as noted by Wilson Conn earlier Tuesday was a four year starter at Louisville, starting 46 games while playing both guard and tackle. His athletic profile is similar to that of many of the linemen the Los Angeles Rams have added in the years since Sean McVay arrived.
Ratliff-Williams is a wide receiver with a similar athletic profile to that of David Moore, who joined Scott Fitterrer with the Carolina Panthers in free agency this spring, though Ratliff-Williams clocked in with a slightly slower time in the 40 and a few pounds lighter. Undrafted out of North Carolina in 2019, during his time in Chapel Hill Ratliff-Williams amassed 1,340 receiving yards on 80 catches, including 8 touchdowns.
In order to make room on the roster for these additions the Seahawks waived Darece Roberson and Michael Jacobson.
