The Seattle Seahawks promoted defensive end Branden Jackson from the practice squad and waived tight end Darrell Daniels on Tuesday.

Jackson appeared in 12 games for Seattle last season and re-signed to the team’s practice squad after being waived during final roster cuts earlier this month. Head coach Pete Carroll said he was uncertain of defensive end Dion Jordan‘s health status coming out of Sunday’s game against Dallas and Jackson’s promotion could be in response to that issue.

Seattle acquired Daniels in a trade for Marcus Johnson at the end of the preseason. Johnson was acquired along with a fifth-round pick from Philadelphia this offseason in exchange for defensive end Michael Bennett. Seattle then traded that fifth-round pick and a seventh-round pick to Denver to move up to select punter Michael Dickson.

So if you’re into trade lineages and who Seattle still has on its roster, the Seahawks have essentially traded Michael Bennett for Michael Dickson.

  1. I’ll take 14 – 18 years of a 50 yard punter who has learned how to play angles and is pretty amazing over a near-retired once-great DE.

  2. Bennett is done. So I guess trading him for a cheap, young, quality punter is better than nothing? Loved Bennett but he hasn’t done anything in Philly. Best days are behind him.

  3. Love this Dickson kid. He’ll punt for the next ten years in Seattle. Great pick. As for Bennett…loved the guy until the protests started and also the drama running from the Vegas PD…it was time for him to go.

  4. Bennett was a beast for Seattle but injuries/age started to take their toll realative to his contract.

    Dickson may be the best punter in football and he is only 3 games in. He kinda had an off game versus the Cowboys but it was average for a NFL punter.

  5. “..the Seahawks have essentially traded Michael Bennett for Michael Dickson.”

    That’s a win for the Hawks. Dickson won’t jump offsides as often standing well behind the LoS. lol

    Hold up… You forget that by year 8 he’ll be too expensive for Pete.
