Friday Round-Up: Seahawks Make Roster Moves Ahead Of Preseason Opener vs Denver Broncos

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


Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, Aug. 14 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

WR Deshon Foxx Released, LB Alex Singleton Signed

Late Thursday, the Seahawks made a roster move, releasing wide receiver Deshon Foxx and re-signing linebacker Alex Singleton.

Singleton, signed as an undrafted rookie free agent this past May who was with the team in the early stages of training camp, comes back to the team on the heels of yesterday's news that second-year linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis will likely sit out tonight's preseason opener against the Denver Broncos.

Head coach Pete Carroll called Pierre-Louis' injury a shoulder strain, one that's affecting the opposite shoulder that landed Pierre-Louis on injured reserve last season.

"He's had a fantastic camp," Carroll said of Pierre-Louis. "He's just been one of the highlight players out here. But he does have a little bit of a lack of strength in a couple directions in his shoulder, so we're going to take care of him."

Singleton, who played his college ball at Montana State, gives Seattle 11 linebackers on its 90-man roster. Foxx, out of the University of Connecticut, originally signed with the Seahawks after participating in the team's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. The wide receiver's release means the team will go into Friday's exhibition with nine players at the position.
