Sunday is the final day of the 2022 NFL preseason, but he Seattle Seahawks have already wrapped up their slate as of Friday. That means they can get a head start on trimming the roster from 80 players to 53 prior to 4 PM ET on Tuesday, August 30th.
We’re already seeing reports of Seahawks roster cuts two days out from the deadline, so we’re getting the tracker up now! There will be news and rumors and maybe trade reports over the next 48 hours or so and this is the place to keep track of what’s going on.
The important deadlines to pay attention to:
- 4 pm ET on Tuesday, August 30th: Teams must trim roster to 53 players
- 12 pm ET on Wednesday, August 31st: Deadline for claiming players who are subject to waivers.
- After 12:01 pm ET on August 31st: 16-man practice squads may be formed and players moved to IR-return (any player moved to IR prior to 12:00 pm ET time Wednesday is not eligible to return to the roster during the 2022 season).
Rumors, reports and updates on developments surrounding the Seahawks roster cuts will be posted here, so keep checking back here on Field Gulls as the updates roll in.
CB Jameson Houston reportedly being waived
Seahawks roster cuts are underway ahead of Tuesday's deadline to get to 53. They've informed CB Jameson Houston that he's being waived, a source tells me.— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) August 28, 2022
TE Cade Brewer reportedly waived
Source confirms they're waiving TE Cade Brewer, as @AaronWilson_NFL reported.— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) August 28, 2022
The Seahawks have now officially confirmed waiving Houston and Brewer, as well as Aaron Donkor and Ronnie Rivers, while also moving Tre Brown to the regular season PUP list.
That means Brown will miss at least the first four games of the season as he continues to recover from the patellar tendon injury he suffered against the Arizona Cardinals last November.
Per Brady Henderson of ESPN the Seahawks will waive C/G Dakoda Shepley, which is likely good news for Kyle Fuller
The Seahawks have informed C/G Dakoda Shepley that he’s being waived, a source tells me. Shepley appeared in eight games last season after Seattle claimed him off waivers from San Francisco.— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) August 30, 2022
Scott Nelson will reportedly be waived.
Tyler Mabry is also set to be waived.
The Seahawks have informed TE Tyler Mabry he's being waived, a source tells me. He played in six games for them in '21. Odds were against him making the team out of camp this year with the TEs ahead of him. That group appears set now with Will Dissly, Noah Fant, Colby Parkinson.— Brady Henderson (@BradyHenderson) August 30, 2022
