The Seattle Seahawks released back up tight end Evan Moore and promoted tight end Sean McGrath from the practice squad to their 53-man roster.

After surprisingly deciding to part ways with Kellen Winslow Jr. at the conclusion of training camp, the Seahawks signed Moore on Sept. 3. Moore had been released by the Cleveland Browns during final cuts.

Despite playing in every game for Seattle this season, Moore had been on the field for just 104 of the team’s 934 offensive snaps (11-percent). He recorded just one catch for six yards in 14 games with the Seahawks. He served as the team’s third option at tight end behind Zach Miller and Anthony McCoy.

McGrath spent training camp with the Seahawks before being released during final cuts. He has spent most of the season on the team’s practice squad. McGrath was an undrafted rookie out of Division II Henderson State University.

Seattle signed linebacker Kyle Knox to the practice squad to fill the hole opened by McGrath’s promotion. Knox also spent training camp with the Seahawks.

    McGrath looked great in preseason.

    Evan Moore looks the part of a catch passing tight end. Moves quickly for a big man, can get open but just doesn’t catch the ball when it comes his way. Maybe it clicks with him with another team.

    All for the best I’d imagine. Those aren’t exactly impressive numbers.

    Watched this guy in Cleveland. Bears should sign him. He can actually stay on his feet and catch the passes he should catch. He’s an instant upgrade over Davis, even though that’s not saying much.

    He can’t catch a cold. Prototypical size though…

    Not surprised. This guys not bad though he knows how to get open and he’s very athletic he just needs to learn how to hold on to it. Good luck to him!

    Good riddance, dude is a total bum. Typical game for Evan Moore: 3 snaps, 1 dropped pass, 1 offensive pass interference penalty, 1 false start.
