Seahawks Roster Down to 53

The Seahawks have stayed relatively quiet the past 24 hours, but they did manage to steal a couple of headlines. Yesterday, the team waived Terrelle Pryor, and they followed that up by releasing veteran offensive tackle Eric Winston earlier today. The team also acquired defensive back Marcus Burley from the Colts.

The team eventually revealed the rest of their moves via a press release, and the team’s transactions are listed below:



Placed on Injured Reserve:

Seahawks Sign Wade Smith

TUESDAY, 3:37pm: Smith’s one-year contract with the Seahawks is a minimum salary benefit contract with a $60K bonus, tweets Adam Caplan of

MONDAY, 1:35pm: The Seahawks have reached an agreement to sign veteran offensive lineman Wade Smith, a source tells Alex Marvez of FOX Sports (Twitter link). Smith will become the second established lineman signed by Seattle within the last week, after the team also brought aboard tackle Eric Winston.

Smith, 33, has appeared in 138 games over the course of his 11-year NFL career for the Dolphins, Jets, Chiefs, and Texans, starting 98 of those contests. Most recently, he spent several seasons in Houston as the club’s full-time left guard, earning a Pro Bowl nod in 2012. Despite having started every game for the Texans for the last four seasons, Smith seemingly didn’t draw a ton of interest this offseason, with only one report linking him to the Dolphins early in free agency. Smith figures to compete for a roster spot and playing time in camp with the Seahawks.

In addition to locking up Smith, the Seahawks also made a handful of other roster moves, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times (Twitter link). The club re-signed defensive tackle Andru Pulu, waiving wide receiver Ronald Johnson and linebacker Brandon Denmark to clear space on the roster for the new additions.
