A morning link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks

Round-Up by Bing

Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Monday, September 1 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

8-of-10 Practice Squad Spots Filled

The Seahawks filled all but two of the 10 available slots on their practice squad yesterday, bringing back eight players that were with the team through preseason - tight end RaShaun Allen, running back Demitrius Bronson, quarterback B.J. Daniels, offensive tackle Nate Isles, wide receiver Chris Matthews, defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, and safeties Terrance Parks and Steven Terrell.

53-Man Roster Set

The Seahawks trimmed their roster from 75 players to the League-mandated 53 over the weekend. Digital Media writer Clare Farnsworth has all the roster cuts for you here and has a nice position-by-position breakdown of the current club here. You can check out the most-recent Seahawks roster right here.

Bruce Irvin Back At Practice

Linebacker Bruce Irvin, the team's first-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, donned shoulder pads and a helmet during Sunday's Seahawks workout. Irvin had been held out through training camp and all preseason games while rehabbing the hip he had surgically repaired this offseason. It was Irvin's first on-field action since Super Bowl XLVIII.

Best Of Luck To...

Linebacker Korey Toomer, fullback Kiero Small, offensive lineman Caylin Hauptmann, center Patrick Lewis, and defensive end Benson Mayowa.

The five former Seahawks who were released on the team's roster cutdown to 53 were picked up by other clubs over the weekend - Toomer by the Dallas Cowboys (active roster), Small (practice squad), Lewis (practice squad), and Hauptmann (active roster) by the Cleveland Browns, and Mayowa by the Oakland Raiders (active roster).

Below, check out their Twitter farewells to the Seahawks.

Raekwon Rocks Seahawks Hat

Staten Island-based rapper Raekwon of the New York City hip-hop collective Wu-Tang Clan was seen rocking a Seahawks hat during Saturday night's Bumbershoot performance on the main stage inside Seattle Center's Memorial Stadium.

Tweet Of The Day

Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from @Raekwon, who directed some kind words at our @Seahawks Twitter account after we complimented his hat choice.  

More From Around The Web

Here at, Clare Farnsworth has comments from Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and Seahawks defensive end Cliff Avril ahead of Thursday's regular-season opener at CenturyLink Field. Farnsworth also profiles linebacker Brock Coyle and offensive tackle Garry Gilliam's road to making the 53-man roster as a pair of undrafted rookie free agents.

I do my best to recap an entertaining back-and-forth between Seahawks wide receivers Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse, who answered questions for one another during Sunday's meeting with the media.

Danny O'Neil of says what happened the last time the Seahawks and Packers met is a mere footnote ahead of this year's matchup.

Chris Sullivan of highlights the now-healthy cornerback Tharold Simon.

And defensive end Michael Bennett compares quarterbacks to Brussels sprouts. Yes, really.
