Seahawks Make Roster Moves

The Seahawks made changes to their 53-man roster and practice squad on Tuesday.

The Seahawks made a roster move at defensive tackle Tuesday, signing Garrison Smith off the practice squad. Defensive tackle Rodney Coe was waived to make room on the roster.

Smith, who went undrafted out of Georgia in 2014, appeared in six games for the Seahawks this season before being released last month, then signed to the practice squad. He made five tackles in those six appearances, and also made five tackles in three games with the Seahawks last season. Prior to joining the Seahawks in 2016, Smith spent time with Miami, New Orleans and San Francisco.

Coe spent most of the season on Seattle's practice squad before being promoted to the 53-man roster two weeks ago when Smith was waived. Coe was inactive for Seattle's Week 13 game against Philadelphia, then played two snaps against the Jaguars on Sunday.

The Seahawks also made a change to the practice squad, signing fullback Jalston Fowler and releasing cornerback Trovon Reed. Fowler, a fourth-round pick out of Alabama in 2015, appeared in 42 games for the Tennessee Titans over the past three seasons, starting seven games. He has 20 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 10 career carries, as well as six catches for 58 yards and a touchdown. Reed, who had previously spent time with Seattle in 2015, was signed to the practice squad in November.

The Seahawks fall short 30-24 against the Jaguars in Week 14 at EverBank Field.
