Seahawks cut Will Blackmon, Donavon Kemp

Will Blackmon AP

Cornerback Will Blackmon was out of the NFL in 2012 and he’ll need to find a new team if he wants to avoid the same fate in 2013.

Blackmon was one of two cuts announced by the Seahawks on Tuesday as the team moved toward 75 men ahead of Tuesday afternoon’s deadline. Blackmon was a fourth-round pick of the Packers in 2006 and returned three punts for touchdowns for Green Bay in the 2007 and 2008 seasons. Injuries slowed him down, however, and Blackmon’s last NFL action came with the Giants during their Super Bowl run at the end of the 2011 season.

The Seahawks are quite deep at cornerback, which would have made Blackmon’s task tough even without being inactive all of last season.

Seattle also officially announced that they have waived wide receiver Donavon Kemp. Kemp spent the last two weeks with the team and spent the 2012 season on injured reserve with the Cowboys.

The Seahawks roster is at 79 players after the transactions. The rest of their moves may involve moving injured wide receiver Percy Harvin, defensive end Greg Scruggs and cornerback Tharold Simon to the regular season pup list while linebacker Korey Toomer moves to the reserve/non-football injury list.

    Yep, quite deep at CB and plenty of Adderall to keep them going.

    Wow a PED joke! havent heard onr of those in 3 months. Very original. Smart move on Simon, he would not have made the practice squad. Seattle is stacked at CB, its crazy because if Maxwell gets cut I can see him being a starter elsewhere. Lane I hope they keep him he started 4 games for us last year and held up just fine.

    Walter Thurmond and Jeremy Lane would be legit starters on any other team. They’re the 4th and 5th option on the Seahawks. It’s a nice problem to have.

    Eagles probably will put a claim in for the corner. They need one for Thursday night, and would want to get a look at him anyway I think.

    What is REALLY lame is that these bozo’s with the PED “jokes” are going to the Seahawks articles just to make the same lame, childish jokes.
    Man, get a hobby.

    Sweetnlow, Walter Thurmond has literally one season of actual playing time as a nickel corner, nad you are saying he’d be a legit starter on every other team??? Know what hyperbole means? You seem to use enough of it, I don’t even know who Jeremy Lane is, that’s the biggest boy who cried wolf moment since literally the boy cried wolf.

    Laughable man, Laughable!

    HAHAHA, this pathetic loser JIMMYT has been on numerous Hawk articles here on Bleacher Report in the past few months. It’s not hard to forget a retarded handle like jimmyT… All he does is try to crack 4 month old lame Adderall jokes. Sounds like a reject repeating himself. I guess he hasn’t noticed like 10 other NFL players have been suspended for PED’s since Irvin, 2 of which being from the rival Rams which brings their total since 2010 to 5 as well… Maybe corn dog JIMMYT can go sound like an idiot on one if their pages. You gotta love all the haters, LOL. In this specific case he must be jealous our 5th, and 6th CB’s are better than any if his starting CB’s… ROLMFAO! What a toolbag!!!

    Sherman, Browner, Winfield, Thurmond, Lane, and Maxwell should all make the roster. We kept 6 last season, and ended up needing the depth.
