Round-Up by Bing

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Monday, August 25- about your Seattle Seahawks:

NFC West Rival Rams Lose Quarterback Sam Bradford

St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, will miss the entire 2014 season after suffering a torn ACL in Saturday's preseason game against the Cleveland Browns. The injury to Bradford's left knee is the same one that brought an early end to his 2013 campaign.

Shaun Hill, a 34-year-old signal caller in his 13th NFL season, will take Bradford's place under center for the Rams. The veteran Hill last started a game in 2010 with the Detroit Lions, a season that saw him throw for 2,686 yards and 16 touchdowns in 11 games for injured starter Matthew Stafford.

Packers Lose Pair Of Starters

The Green Bay Packers, the Seahawks' Week 1 opponent at CenturyLink Field, lost a pair of starters to injury in their preseason game against the Oakland Raiders on Friday night.

Defensive end B.J. Raji suffered a season-ending torn biceps and second-year center JC Tretter will miss up to six weeks with a knee injury.

Seahawks Trim Roster

All NFL clubs must trim their 90-man rosters down to 75 players by Tuesday at 1 p.m. PT, and the Seahawks got a jump start on the process today, making the following transactions:

Terminated veteran contracts:

T Wade Smith

CB Terrell Thomas


T Cory Brandon

RB Demitrius Bronson

S Mike Dobson

DE Jackson Jeffcoat

WR Kevin Smith

CB Thomas Wolfe

The moves bring Seattle's roster down to 82 players, meaning seven more roster moves need to come by tomorrow afternoon.
