Seahawks roster update following the Raider game – final cut

Following the Raiders game and before the roster cuts go ahead here are my predictions. I will update it with reasons later.

Green = keep

Red = cut

Orange = injury

Grey = Practice squad

Offence (25)

QB (2)

Wilson, Hundley, Davis, McGough

Wilson no.1 and they did not trade for Hundley only to release him. Davis gets cut after what was his best performance of the preseason, he is just not in the same mold as the other three. McGough makes the PS.

RB (3)

Carson, Penny, Davis, Madden, Stockton, Marx, Holmes

No change here, Davis had a strong game against the Raiders, Holmes also flashed some real  potential and could be a PS candidate. Madden has not shown enough in my opinion and does not warrant a spot.

RB3D (1)

Prosise, McKissic

It looks like they will try to keep McKissic on the 53 rather than putting him on IR, I still think that he should be left to heal up first leaving Prosise as the only one to make the 53.

TE (3)

Vannett, Dissly, Dickson, Carter, Wilson, Hill, Swoops

Hill stays on IR. Swoops flashed potential, but didn’t do enough to beat out one of the top guys, so he spends another year on the PS. Carter and Wilson also didn’t do enough to warrant being on the team. That leaves the first three who were pretty set from the beginning.

WR (7)

Baldwin, Lockett, Brown, Moore, Marshall, Grayson, Reynolds, Turner, Scott, Darboh, Stringfellow, Johnson


T (4)

Brown, Fant, Ifedi, Battle, Jones, Beavers


G (4)

Pocic, Fluker, Philips, Odhiambo, Sweezy, Roos


C (1)

Britt, Henry, Hunt


Defence (25)

DE (3)

Clark, Green, Jefferson, Jordan, Jackson, Ali’ifua

I think that this could be one of the surprises, with the Seahawks getting a lot of good plays from the likes of Mingo and Martin off the edge, they might go with only 3 full DEs.

DT (5)

Reed, Jones, Stephen, Johnson, Ford, Ivie

No change, our inside is still looking pretty tough.

LB (7)

Wagner, Wright, Mingo, Martin, Griffin, Calitro, Walden, Alexander, Beal, Pugh


CB (6)

Griffin, Maxwell, Coleman, Flowers, Thorpe, King, Johnson, Reed, Battle, Boykins


SS (3)

Mcdougald, HillAlexander, Tyson


FS (1)

Thompson, Mutcherson, Jerome


Special Teams (3)

K (1)


Has been decided Myers was released and signed by the Jets.

P (1)


Competition has been decided, Ryan was released and signed by the Bills where he will be reunited with Hauschka. Wish him all the best.

LS (1)


no competition means a lock.

PUP – reserve


will not come back. Probably will retire, might become a coach (at least that would be great)


No idea what is going on with him

Reserve – did not report

Earl Thomas

ET is still nowhere to be seen. I still think that he will be traded.
