Seahawks waive WR Darvin Kidsy, open up roster spot

Amid the news of K.J. Wright visiting the Las Vegas Raiders today, the Seattle Seahawks have waived a receiver to open up space on the roster for a potential new signing.

Darvin Kidsy, who last played for the Washington Football Team in 2019, was waived by Seattle Wednesday. The undrafted receiver from Texas Southern was signed onto the Seahawks’ practice squad in December of last year before agreeing to a futures contract in January.

The reasons for the cut are currently unknown, but with an open roster spot the Seahawks may have the option to bring in an experienced veteran. Talks about a Richard Sherman reunion have cooled down since the incident in July, and K.J. Wright now seems to be at least publicly entertaining other suitors, making his return to Seattle all the less likely. However, there are still a number of free agents available that the Seahawks may be interested in, including former ‘Hawk Russell Okung, and edge rusher Olivier Vernon.

At the moment, though, the Seahawks seem keen to give young players a chance at some of their weaker positions throughout the preseason, so it’s not clear that the team is in any rush to bring in a veteran player. The Hawks did work out both Michael Jacobson and Lakiem Williamson, so it would not be a surprise if one of them were added to the roster prior to practice on Friday.
