Seahawks bail on 2013 fourth-round pick

Harper AP

The Seattle Seahawks have made their moves to get to 53 players.  These moves include a decision to waive receiver Chris Harper, the team’s fourth-round pick in 2013.

Also waived by the Seahawks were receiver Phil Bates, defensive tackle Michael Brooks, defensive tackle Dewayne Cherrington, receiver Arceto Clark, tight end Darren Fells, defensive back Winston Guy, tight end Cooper Helfet, defensive tackle Jaye Howard, guard Rishaw Johnson, tight end Sean McGrath, defensive back Ron Parker, linebacker Ty Powell, guard Ryan Seymour, defensive back DeShawn Shead, defensive tackle Sealver Siliga, guard Jared Smith, and receiver Bryan Walters.

The Seahawks also terminated the contracts of veteran defensive tackle Clinton McDonald, fullback Michael Robinson, quarterback Brady Quinn, and cornerback Antoine Winfield.

Harper, like all players who are waived, will be subject to a process that allows teams to make a claim, with the contract awarded on a worst-to-first priority basis.

Finally, defensive end Chris Clemons was moved from the PUP list to the active roster, after suffering a torn ACL in January.

    Harper was an easy won – didn’t really show at all in pre-season. Kearse and Williams won their jobs and Harper had 2 brutal drops last game that doomed him.

    The headscratcher for me was Clinton McDonald – not sure what Schneider/Pete have cooked up at the position but I’m interested to see what they do.

    After two horrible drops against Oakland the move to drop Harper was not a surprise.

    Kearse and Stephen Williams stepped up, big time. Made plays the entire preseason. Harper showed some promise but simply wasn’t as impressive, and, yeah, that wide-open drop in the end zone on Thursday was probably the final nail in the coffin as far as making the final 53.

    It would be nice if he cleared waivers and made it to the practice squad, but I don’t see that happening. Some WR needy team will take a flyer on him.

    Glad to see Spencer Ware make the team. That kid is a beast and he’ll make a great FB.

    Him and Michael and Lynch are gonna destroy teams running the football.

    He dropped easy passes

    Ya ya, Chris Harper. Saw that coming all month long. Here is where I’m confused. What happened with Antoine Winfield?

    Spencer Ware is a terrible pass blocker, especially blitzes. He’ll end up on the PS before the season is over. Likely when Irvin returns or Mike Rob is resigned for less.

    Winfield fell victim to the salary cap. The ‘Hawks saved a million dollars in salary cap room by letting him go.

    Cutting a 4th round pick this soon qualifies as a bust pick. Could have found better in the 4th round evidently.
