Safety Steven Terrell, linebacker Brandon Denmark added to training camp roster

Posted Jul 26, 2014

The Seahawks signed safety Steven Terrell and Brandon Denmark on Saturday to fill the spots on the 90-man roster that opened when Marshawn Lynch was placed on reserve/did not report and Dewayne Cherrington was waived/injured.

Free safety Steven Terrell and linebacker Brandon Denmark were signed by the Seahawks on Saturday just before the team held its second training camp practice.

The second-year safety and rookie linebacker fill the roster spots that opened when running back Marshawn Lynch was placed on the reserve/did not report list and defensive tackle Dewayne Cherrington was waived injured.

The 5-foot-10, 197-pound Terrell played at Texas A&M, while the 6-3, 244-pound Denmark played at Florida A&M. Terrell signed with the Houston Texans after the NFL Draft in May, but was waived later that month. Denmark signed with the Green Bay Packers after attending their rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, but was later released.

The Seahawks can use depth at both positions, with linebackers Malcolm Smith, Bruce Irvin and Korey Toomer out with injuries or while recovering from offseason surgery and strong safety Kam Chancellor also sitting out Friday’s practice.
