It turns out the Seahawks haven’t given up on rookie fourth-round pick Gary Jennings. The wideout was in Seattle’s locker room Thursday, with Field Yates of ESPN.com noting (via Twitter) the team will instead waive defensive lineman Bryan Mone to make room for safety Adrian Colbert‘s promotion.
A Wednesday report indicated Jennings was the player set for the waiver wire to make room for Colbert, a former 49ers starting safety. For the time being, the Seahawks will keep their three-rookie-wideout setup going. The Seahawks submitted a notice Jennings would be waived but rescinded it, per the Seattle Times’ Bob Condotta (on Twitter).
Seattle drafted D.K. Metcalf, Jennings and John Ursua this year. Only Metcalf has made a catch as a rookie, but he and Ursua — a seventh-rounder out of Hawaii — have played in games. Jennings has yet to be active. The West Virginia product missed time during Seattle’s offseason program with a hamstring injury and had a quiet training camp.
