Marcus Dowtin, Greg Van Roten released; Demitrius Bronson re-signed, Patrick Lewis claimed

Posted Aug 27, 2014

The Seahawks made a pair of roster moves ahead of Thursday night's preseason finale against the Raiders in Oakland.

Renton, Wash. – The Seattle Seahawks have released linebacker Marcus Dowtin and guard Greg Van Roten, signed running back Demitrius Bronson and claimed center Patrick Lewis off waivers (Jacksonville), the team announced today.

Lewis entered the NFL in 2013 as a rookie free agent with the Green Bay Packers, but was released on the final roster cut last August. He was claimed the next day by the Cleveland Browns, who then released him in November and signed Lewis to their practice squad. The Jaguars signed him off the Browns’ practice squad last December.

Bronson returns to the team after being released on August 25. Dowtin signed with Seattle on August 1 and Van Roten signed a future contract with Seattle on February 14.
