Seahawks claim center Patrick Lewis off waivers from Jacksonville

There has seemingly been a pipeline connecting the Jacksonville Jaguars and Seattle Seahawks since Gus Bradley left to become the head coach of the Jaguars last year.

However, that pipeline has predominantly flowed in one direction – from Seattle to Jacksonville – when it comes to picking up the cast-offs from the other team.

Seattle reversed the flow on Tuesday by claiming center Patrick Lewis off waivers from the Jaguars.

Lewis was an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M in 2013 that initially signed with the Green Bay Packers. After being released, he was signed by the Cleveland Browns to their practice squad. He was then signed off the practice squad to Jacksonville’s active roster last December.

Lewis likely won’t find a way onto Seattle’s roster either as they appear set at center with starter Max Unger and backup Lemuel Jeanpierre. He could be a practice squad candidate following final cuts this weekend.

To make room on their roster, Seattle released linebacker Marcus Dowtin.

    No surprise. The Super Bowl Champs have been devastated by free agency and the salary cap. They finally have a chance to stock up on players rejected by other teams.

    Lem has not had a good preseason. Lewis has been better. Not going to be surprised if it’s Lewis that wins.

    This move is confusing to me.

    Did I read that right? On of the best teams over the last 10 years has taken a castoff from one of the worst teams in the last 10 years. That can’t be.

    That’s a pretty good deal for Patrick Lewis going from the Jags to the Super Bowl Champions.

    The Jags have gotten significantly better due to that pipeline. We appreciate our brethren team of the northwest.

    I wish the Seahawks would stop trying to be like the Jags. They need to go out and do something for themselves. LOL!

    More than likely, SEA signed him to keep GB from signing him, since GB needs a back-up center, and SEA-GB play in 7 days. Good move by Schneider.

    If GB wanted him, they could have claimed him. By virtue of their SB win, Seahawks are the last team in the waiver line. Every other team had a shot at this guy before Seattle.

    True (everybody else must have passed on him) — also, he can’t be a very good center because Jacksonville has a huge question mark at the center position. Remember, they tried to get Alex Mack, but when the Browns matched the $, they went back to the drawing board, where they’ve been ever since. The leader in the race for the Jax C job may be Luke Bowanko, which would be kind of neat, since the Jaguars picked up Bowanko with the pick the 49ers gave them for Blaine Gabbert.

    Jacksonville is our brother team. Minnesota is our mere farm team.

    Most teams will cut down to 53. The Sea Squawks will cut an additional 10 players from their sorry roster, and claim players cut by other teams. They will be scrapping the bottom of the talent barrel for the next two weeks to replace the starters they lost.
