Seahawks promote WR David Moore from practice squad

The Seahawks opened a roster spot on Tuesday when they waived defensive end Dwight Freeney and they filled it on Wednesday with a player from the other side of the ball.

The team announced that wide receiver David Moore has been promoted from the practice squad.

Moore was a seventh-round pick by the team this April and caught four passes for 44 yards during the preseason. He failed to make the 53-man roster in early September, but returned to the practice squad after passing through waivers unclaimed.

With Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson, Tyler Lockett, Tanner McEvoy and Amara Darboh already on hand at receiver, Moore may be looking at special teams work as his route to the 46-man gameday roster.

  1. So they waived a guy who had 3 sacks in 4 games not to add some MUCH needed help to a very depleted secondary, but to call up some nobody practice squad WR?

    Sherman out. Chancellor out. Griffin went down. They have Baldwin, Richardson, Lockett, McKissic, but forget the secondary…..lets subtract from our pass rush to bring up a #6 WR / special teamer

    Weakening an already depleted defense for apparently no reason at all.

    But hey, try another last second TE shovel pass fake FG that has to go 20 yards for TD or bust. Challenge more obviously incomplete passes that clearly bounce straight off the turf as if you have no access to replay before throwing a challenge flag.

    These Seahawks are just clueless right now.

  2. Another head scratcher. Cut a guy who was productive as a pass rusher and call up a receiver who will never see the field, thusly not contributing. At least bring in some secondary help with Griffin going down last game.

    Maybe this is all part of a bigger plan, but from fans’ perspective, this is all just weird. I think Pete’s losing his mind in his old age. Bad enough the team looks unprepared every week, plays undisciplined, and makes too many sloppy mistakes, but his game management has been horrendous this year.

    With that being said, Moore should have been on the roster all along ahead of McEvoy. As should have Kasen Williams.

  3. What do you expect? That’s the same PC who allowed OC Darryl Bevell to throw away a back to bad SB win with a bad play call from the 1.
