Monday was a busy day for the Seattle Seahawks, as the team waived five members of the roster ahead of the start of Phase I of the offseason program. In addition the team also formally signed the contracts of three exclusive rights free agents and sent the signings to the league office for processing.
However, that was not all that the team accomplished Monday, with the most important news for many fans likely coming in the form of the press release late in the afternoon in which they announced the jersey numbers for the recent free agent signings.
