2015 Roster Madness Vol. 1

Rosters were cut to 75 today, and that means a lot of shifting took place on a pretty deep and talented Seahawks Roster. As you’ve likely already seen, here are the moves:

Terminated Contracts:

Terminated Veteran Contracts:

C – Lamuel Jeanpierre

DT – D’Anthony Smith

Waived / Injured:

FB – Brandon Cottom

CB – Tristan Wade

Waived:

WR – Deshon Foxx

WR – Deontay Greenberry

T – Jesse Davis

DE – Greg Scruggs

LB – Quayshawn Nealy

CB – George Farmer

CB – Keelan Johnson

S – Ty Zimmerman

PUP List:

WR – Paul Richardson

CB – Jeremy Lane

Throw in the earlier trade of Kevin Norwood to Carolina for a conditional 2017 draft pick and the front office has had a very busy day.

The big surprises of this round would have to be Greg Scruggs and Lamuel Jeanpierre. Jeanpierre came into the preseason with the inside track on the starting Center job that was left empty when Max Unger was shipped to New Orleans in the Jimmy Graham trade. However, he never took hold of the position and actually looked worse early in the preseason than he did filling in last year while Unger was injured. It looks like Drew Nowak is in the driver’s seat now, though Lewis has had a positive buzz all preseason despite not seeing him in game action. Scruggs on the other hand played fairly solid, but appears to be the victim of an extremely deep and talented D-Line rotation. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Scruggs land on Atlanta’s roster, though no matter the team he will play somewhere.

Other Notes:

  • George Farmer being an apparent CB convert seems a good candidate for a spot on the Practice Squad if nobody else takes him first.
  • Jesse Davis who is very raw but has a lot of the measurables you look for in a Tackle also seems likely to see a Practice Squad offer.
  • No surprise to see Lane on the PUP list considering his late and devastating injuries, but Richardson had been recovering very quickly and had hoped to see the field Week 1 or 2. This is probably for the best as the team has the depth to play while both fully recover as they each have high ceilings I’d hate to see robbed by nagging injuries
  • I know as a Seattle fan I shouldn’t care about Carolina, but I can’t help feeling that is a great fit and landing spot for Norwood who could make some noise this year (modest noise) as probably now their 3rd best receiver.
