Seahawks promote Garrison Smith, waive David Bass

The Seahawks promoted defensive lineman Garrison Smith from their practice squad, waiving defensive end David Bass in a corresponding move.

Smith played in three games last season after the Seahawks claimed him off waivers from the 49ers. Seattle placed him on injured reserve in October.

The Seahawks waived Smith in their final cuts at the end of the preseason and then signed him to the practice squad.

Bass signed with Seattle as free agent in May. He had one tackle in two games. This is Bass’ fifth NFL season, as he’s also spent time in Chicago and Tennessee. Bass made seven starts for the Titans in 2015.

Seattle also announced the signing of defensive back Tyvis Powell and linebacker Joseph Jones to the practice squad. It released linebacker Austin Calitro from the practice squad.

  1. JP says:
    Ryan Clady is still out there.

    And there’s a good reason for that. That guy is finished.

  2. Isn’t he a huge injury risk? Also, I was wondering about Brandon Albert…but who knows if those guys are in shape enough to play…and they’d have to fit Cable’s style of zone blocking.

  3. Lol Boonie! On a different subject: we’re going to have to tag Sheldon Richardson…he’s a beast and fits our defense perfectly. Love seeing him blow up the pocket damn near every play. Tag him, then when we cut Bennett after next season, give him Bennett’s slice of the cap.

  4. John Schneider is the greatest GM in sports history, and Pete Carroll is the greatest coach in sports history. Do not EVER question them! They don’t make mistakes….Well, there was that on time in SB 49….

  5. “When will you guys learn? There are zero offensive linemen available who would be better than what we currently have”

    I think you are mistaken. After all, I’m pretty sure a tire fire is still available.

  6. Pete & John threw some money at 5 new shiny orange traffic cones to shore up the Oline. I believe Glow & Ifedi are being sent to the 2nd team.

  7. “On a different subject: we’re going to have to tag Sheldon Richardson…he’s a beast and fits our defense perfectly. Love seeing him blow up the pocket damn near every play. Tag him, then when we cut Bennett after next season, give him Bennett’s slice of the cap.”

    agree on Richardson. But I’m starting to think that it’s going to be jimmy’s slice of the cap that gets shifted over to Richardson . . .he’s not playing up to the $ he’s getting these days.

  8. For those talking about the offensive line. Seattle made trades just before the season started that hopefully be put to use this week.

    Matt Tobin & Isiah Battle but I think its time to test out 2nd round pick Pocic. The two that have been the worst are Mark Glowinski who doesn’t look like he belongs in NFL and Joeckel who looked good in pre-season but went back to his old form when the season started.

    Pete Carroll has put too much trust in Tom Cable and Bevell. I have said it for 2 or 3 years. By formation & down and distance I can call out nearly every Seahawk play. The only time Seattle can move the ball is in the 2 minute drill with Russell Wilson improvising.
