Monday Round-Up: Seahawks Waive Cornerback Jeremy Crayton, Re-Sign Wide Receiver Deshon Foxx

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 - Monday, Aug. 24 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Seahawks Make Roster Moves

The Seahawks started the third week of preseason play by making a roster move, waiving cornerback Jeremy Crayton and re-signing Deshon Foxx, who originally signed in Seattle after participating in the team's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Foxx, a 5-foot-10, 177-pound wide receiver out of UCONN, was with the club through the early stages of training camp but was waived ahead of the team's preseason opener with the team needing to add some depth at linebacker. He was a 12-game starter for the Huskies last year who also saw time at quarterback, finishing the year with 716 all-purpose yards, including 30 grabs for 384 yards and 20 carries for 203 yards. His most productive years as a pass catcher came in 2013, when he recorded 43 receptions for 534 yards and two scores.

Crayton was signed just seven days ago with the Seahawks looking to add depth to their ailing secondary. But after the team's 14-13 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs this past Friday, head coach Pete Carroll said the 'Legion of Boom' should see a few players return this week, most notably Richard Sherman (hip), Will Blackmon (groin), and Tharold Simon (shoulder). The trio has yet to play in an exhibition game this year.

Good Grief, Jon Ryan

Seahawks punter Jon Ryan, a Seattle Mariners season-ticket holder, participated in an on-field activity during Sunday's game at Safeco Field, offering Charlie Brown (a.k.a. the Mariner Moose) a little help when it comes to proper punting technique. The Mariners won, 8-6, over the Chicago White Sox.

Tweet Of The Day

Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from birthday-boy Clint Gresham, the Seahawks long snapper who expresses a bit of disappointment he's never had a joint-party with Seahawks Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive tackle Cortez Kennedy, whose birthday was yesterday.

Long snapper Clint Gresham was signed by the Seahawks as a free agent in 2010, and was a member of the Seahawks during their back-to-back Super Bowl appearances in 2013 and 2014, including winning Super Bowl XLVIII. He played in the league for six seasons, all in Seattle.
