The Seahawks were the first team in the NFL to lose a player off their practice squad this season when the 49ers signed 2013 fourth-round wide receiver Chris Harper before the Seahawks could even announce that he had agreed to join seven others in Seattle.
Life goes on, however, and the Seahawks announced eight players who have yet to find employment elsewhere in the NFL. All of them spent time with the Seahawks this summer before ultimately failing to make the team’s initial 53-man roster.
The players joining the practice squad in Seattle are defensive tackle Michael Brooks, tight end Cooper Helfet, linebacker Ty Powell, guard Ryan Seymour, defensive back DeShawn Shead, defensive tackle Sealver Siliga, center Jared Smith and wide receiver Bryan Walters (pictured).
Smith and Seymour were both seventh-round picks in April.
