The Seattle Seahawks’ 2023 preseason has wrapped up, and now the difficult decisions have to be made regarding the roster. While we’re two days away from the deadline for reducing the 90-man roster down to 53, we anticipate that there will be news of players getting waived or released well in advance of the deadline.

This is your one-stop hub for Seahawks roster cuts news, reports, and confirmations from now until Tuesday.

These are the important deadlines to pay attention to:

  • 4 pm ET on Tuesday, August 29th: Teams must trim roster to 53 players
  • 12 pm ET on Wednesday, August 30th: Deadline for claiming players who are subject to waivers.
  • After 12:01 pm ET on August 30th: 16-man practice squads may be formed.
  • After 4:01 pm ET on August 30th: Any player placed on Reserve/Injured, Reserve/Non- Football Injury or Illness, or Practice Squad; Injured during the regular season or postseason, may be designated for return later in the season, subject to the applicable procedures. Any player moved to IR prior to 12:00 pm ET time Wednesday is not eligible to return to the roster during the 2023 season.

And here’s an important rule to note re vested veterans:

  • NFL players who are “vested” veterans are not subject to waivers if they’re released before the trade deadline. Players become vested after accruing four seasons of experience. So for example, Mario Edwards Jr could get released and sign with another team immediately, whereas Joey Blount would go through waivers.
