Many fans of the Seattle Seahawks were let down earlier this week when the team missed out on adding former Hawks wide receiver Josh Gordon, who opted to sign with Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Then, Wednesday morning reports emerged that former Legion of Boom member Richard Sherman was signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Not to be left out in adding big name players, Seattle on Wednesday afternoon added three players to the practice squad, including a first round pick who was previously with the team but never saw the field.

So, in addition to Phillip Dorsett, the team also brought back quarterback Jake Luton and added tight end Ryan Izzo. Izzo also comes with a familiar name, but the unquestionable authority on these matters, Wikipedia, states that there is no relationship between he and special teams coach Larry Izzo. Interestingly, both Dorsett and Luton were with former offensive coordinators Brian Schottenheimer and Darrell Bevell as members of the the Jacksonville Jaguars this preseason, but failed to make the 53 man roster out of training camp.
