Seahawks waive two players, sign WR Morrell Presley

The Seahawks signed rookie wide receiver Morrell Presley and waived second-year offensive guard Jared Smith and rookie tight end Chase Dixon on Thursday, according to the NFL’s transactions.

Presley (6-4, 225) tried out for Seattle in the spring. He played at UCLA (2009-2010) and California (Pa.) (2012). As PFT’s Curtis Crabtree noted, Presley — whose addition was first reported yesterday — adds a little more size to the club’s receiving corps after the retirement of Sidney Rice.

Smith, a seventh-round pick of Seattle in 2013, was waived/injured. According to the club’s website, Smith sustained a leg injury last year.

Dixon is an undrafted free agent out of Central Arkansas.

The roster moves leave the Seahawks with 88 players, leaving them two open roster spots in case they wanted to, you know, add another running back.

    Best organization in all of sports is making it look easy yet again. Other teams wish they were as well run as the hawks. That’s why we are a dynasty of epic proportions for years to come. #12thmanisheretostay

    Best organization in all of sports? Dynasty for years to come? Way to come with solid facts. The Detroit Redwings have the longest active playoff streak in all of American sports. In that time they have won 4 championships bringing their total to 11. That first comment is ridiculous.

    whoa kick back dynasty? Winning one superbowl is not a dynasty. You wonder why seahawk fans are probably the most disliked fan base in the nfl.
