Seahawks awarded wide receiver Perez Ashford on waivers

Perez Ashford AP

The Seahawks were awarded undrafted rookie wide receiver Perez Ashford on waivers from New England on Thursday, the club said.

In addition, the Seahawks announced the signing of undrafted rookie tight end Andrei Lintz, who played at Washington State.

A Northern Illinois product, Ashford originally signed with Cleveland on April 30. The Browns waived him May 30, and he landed with the Patriots on July 19.

Ashford and Lintz are reinforcements at positions where the Seahawks currently have key players out of action. Wide receiver Percy Harvin and tight end Zach Miller are on the active-PUP list, while wideout Sidney Rice has sought treatment in Switzerland for a knee ailment.

In other roster moves, the Seahawks waived-injured rookie wideout Greg Herd and waived rookie running back Ray Holley. Herd played at Eastern Washington, while Holley is a Louisiana Tech product. Both were undrafted free agents.

    Who really cares about the hawks?

    Well, an undrafted wide receiver and an undrafted tight end hardly make up for losing Percy Harvin for a significant chunk of time, as well as dealing with “some” kind of knee issue with Sidney Rice. But we still have basically the same excellent offensive team as we did for the second half of the season last year. And we have that extraordinary defensive team to go with it. I think that means we’re in excellent shape, but still eager to have Harvin and Rice back.

    Hey bean no one cares about you, your mom told me so. Why don’t you go prance around your own teams threads

    I didn’t realize Miller and Rice were still on the Seahawks. Seattle has made some terrible personnel moves in the past few years (Yes, I’m talking about you Percy)

    Yeah blueballz terrible moves, completely flushing the roster and in 3 years building a championship contender with the best secondary in the league, guys that everyone passed on. Your football knowledge is amazing.

    Championship contender? Bwahahahahah…Seac0cks are so dillusional..Hey gals maybe you should at least make it to the superbowl more than once in 37 years to say anything to do with “championship”…#@small market shadows.

    Holy churn, batman. I saw Ray Holley catching everything thrown his way at camp this morning, including breaking two tackles on his way to taking a bubble screen for a TD.

    You know your team’s scary when a guy like that doesn’t crack the top 90. Granted, he’s puny, and we already have Marshawn, Turbin, and Christine Michael for RBs and Mike Rob and Spencer Ware for FBs, so it’s not like he was even on the bubble’s bubble to begin with.

    Hey blueballz, if you ignore the excellent high value draft picks like 1st round LT Russell Okung, 1st round and Pro Bowl FS Earl Thomas, starting MLB Bobby Wagner (2nd round), solid mid-round picks like starting QB Russell Wilson (3rd round), starting OLB KJ Wright (4th round), late-round draft picks like Pro Bowler SS Kam Chancellor (5th round), Pro Bowler CB Richard Sherman (5th round), and astute trades like the one that picked up DE Chris Clemons (33.5 sacks in three years with the Hawks) or RB Marshawn Lynch, then yes, the front office has done a terrible job. How does Schneider still have a job anyway?

    Yep, the Seahawks gave up way to much for Harvin, stupid move

    Seahawks are the best team ever in NFL history, just ask them.

  12. payton2kemp says: Aug 1, 2013 11:18 PM

    Oh man those dumb Seahawks are signing another undrafted WR. Oh wait that’s what they did in 2011 and he led our team in receiving yards and receptions.

    Nobody has made better moves than the Seahawks the last few years!

  13. payton2kemp says: Aug 1, 2013 11:21 PM

    Gotta love the Niners fans who comment on how dumb the hawks were to trade for Harvin. Let me guess we should’ve saved our late first round pick and drafted a WR like you did last year. How’d that work out for you?

  14. nflpoker says: Aug 1, 2013 11:22 PM

    It is amazing how the Hawk fans are so full of themselves.I can’t wait to see you lose your first playoff game of the season. It will only be a wild card game. And it won’t be close. I can just see the tears now.

    OK, with that said, you can get nasty. Have fun.

    Don’t get me wrong…the hawks are good. Championship contender, a little strong. I haven’t seen them in any championship games lately…NFC or Superbowl.

    It’s so rare to have irrefutable evidence that somebody has no idea what they’re talking about. You truly don’t have a clue, do you? Not a single clue.

    Means, like, 25 teams passed on him and ALL the REALLY bad ones.

    So, that sums up what kind of player he likely will be.

    I love yanking chains. Ignore me and I will go away, otherwise.

    Excuse me a second, I hear somebody laughing in the background. “Oh, hi Mr. Spielman. What are you laughing about? Oh, because you got a 1st, 3nd, and a 7th from a team who got a player (kr/slot receiver) who they don’t really need because their team is suppose to be so good? They are paying him how much? OK Rick, you can keep laughing”.

    yank, yank, yank

    Hey poker….
    pretty sure thats not all your yanking.
    Sorry to be juvenile

    Shuffling and giving more folks a look seems like a positive move for any team. Not sure why anyone feels that picking up these two is bad. You give them a looksee and if they aren’t better than what you have you release them. That process should continue. That is how you build depth, at this point in the season.
