Seahawks shuffle defensive tackles, bring back Sealver Siliga

The Seahawks are setting up their roster for this week’s game against the Cardinals and making a change at defensive tackle is part of the process.

The team announced on Tuesday that they have placed Garrison Smith on injured reserve and signed Sealver Siliga. Smith was listed as questionable with an oblique injury on last week’s injury report, but played against the Falcons.

Smith saw action in three games, making five tackles, with the Seahawks after signing with them in early September. He was with the 49ers over the summer, but didn’t make the 53-man roster.

Siliga signed with the Seahawks in March and was released with an injury settlement after hurting his calf in August. That left him free to sign with other teams, but he couldn’t return to the Seahawks until now. Siliga played 25 games for the Patriots over the last three seasons, including their Super Bowl win over the Seahawks, and had 5.5 sacks.

    Seahawks shuffle Smith, Siliga.

    Hey, yo, Sealver, come back!

    Given his talent and age, no matter who your team is, your GM would trade your QB for Russell Wilson TODAY.

    Think about that for awhile.

    Not good. Defensive line was a depth for Seattle before the season started. This team is turning into a M.A.S.H. unit.

    Smith was involved in 5 tackles this season. Hardly a major loss, and we’re hardly a MASH unit, especially since we had Siliga on the ghost roster and Jordan Hill after him. We lost our #2 TE last game. We’re waiting on the return of Rawls. Pittsburgh lost their QB, probably for some time. Other teams have lost top players. The Seahawks have five or six players we cannot afford to lose: Wilson, Graham, Baldwin, Bennett, Sherman, and Thomas. Might add Wagner to that list. A close call with Bennett, but we missed that bullet.

    We’re 4-1 and feeling fine.

    When you take PED’s, you push your body beyond what it can safely do. Not surprised when I hear Seattle player is out due to injury.

    karma for leading the league with PED suspensions for 5 straight years?

    damm you Pete the cheat!

    Should be 3-2. Be Grateful for poor officiating. The whole world knows that was PI on Julio Jones.

    Try winning with class and humility.

  11. arvinkp says: Oct 18, 2016 9:50 PM

    Ya JJ should have been penalized for Contact to the head… where was the damn flag?

    As a Seahawks fan, it’s a weird feeling to be on the positive side of a bad call.

    You morons still think Seahawks lead league in PED suspensions better catch up on your research.

    I would add Kam to the list this year. He’s been playing amazing, and when he’s out there we flow to our spots better. The two blown coverages (the only time Atlanta scored) was because of an inexperienced Kelcie (who other than those two plays, played well). Kam doesn’t light up the stat book with tackles or sacks or pics but his presence is key on the D.

    Should be 4-1 because that is what we are. The game doesn’t come down to one play. The Falcons lost the game in the first half. Almost came back and won and they fought hard (good for them). Julio also got away with illegal hands to the face on Sherman to get loose on that play so if we are going back to review penalties (which is dumb) than it’s offsetting penalties and its still 4th and 10. Falcons only got two big plays that whole game because of blown coverages. Your two “great” running backs didn’t do so hot in that game. 50 yards rushing total….
