Apparently, the Seahawks needed an extra man, and weren’t afraid of getting the Jake Ballard treatment.
The team announced they had waived/injured tight end Anthony McCoy, who suffered a torn Achilles last week in OTAs. He’d revert to their injured reserve list if no one puts in a claim on him. The Seahawks filled the roster spot with tackle Jake Bscherer.
While it’s unlikely another team would claim McCoy so shortly after such an injury, no one expected the Patriots to claim Giants tight end Jake Ballard last year after a torn ACL. But Ballard was on the field with the Patriots last week, apparently recovered and ready to contribute.
