The Seahawks have re-signed a player whom they waived in their final cuts.

The club announced Monday it had brought back wide receiver Bryan Walters, a fifth-year pro from Cornell.

With Walters coming back, the Seahawks waived third-year wide receiver Phil Bates.

The 26-year-old Walters appeared in four games for Seattle in 2013. He also played four games for San Diego in 2011. Walters hauled in four passes for 73 yards and one touchdown in the 2014 exhibition slate for the Seahawks.

Seattle has seven receivers on its 53-player roster.

The Seahawks also announced they had signed second-year safety Josh Aubrey and rookie defensive end Julius Warmsley to their practice squad. Seattle now has all 10 practice squad spots filled.

  1. Definitely an odd sequence of cuts – I expected them to keep Walters over Bates on the initial cut to 53. I guess someone changed their mind.

  2. Phil Bates has great size and can play.To bad Gettleman is on an ego trip or he’d be in Charlotte tomorrow.

    If Cleveland doesn’t grab him first. He can start for either team.

  3. Pete Carroll is pure comedy gold. Earlier today, the Packers’ Facebook page posted an article about a recent interview with him about the Fail Mary. It was OK because the refs “called it the way they saw it.”

    No, Pete. They did what Goodell told them to do: Make the Packers lose at all costs.

  4. They covet Walters versatility over bates’ potential it looks like. BW is a solid receiver and returner who can step in if need be.
