John Schneider can sleep when the season is over.
After promoting Jon Rhattigan, moving Ethan Pocic to injured reserve, and losing Jordan Simmons to the Las Vegas Raiders, the Seattle Seahawks continue to update their practice squad.

Also signed WR De'Quan Hampton, TE Michael Jacobson to the practice squad.
Not only is Connor Wedington from Sumner, but he played for Seattle this preseason. Wedington signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent from Stanford, but did not make the final 53-man or initial practice squad.
De’Quan Hampton and Michael Jacobson are also pass catchers, and it’s obvious that Seattle wants to refill their depth after all their backup pieces from Colby Parkinson to Dee Eskridge have been dealing with various injuries. See what I did there because Parkinson is very tall and Eskridge is very short so it covers a lot of people.
Anyway, it’s an interesting component to having played exclusively backups this year, and having an expanded practice squad. Seattle has a huge array of experience with many athletes, and we’ve already seen a difference in how many guys have been able to come and go in a very active start to the transaction wire for Schneider and his crew.
