Seahawks Make Roster Moves, Adding Two Receivers

The Seahawks made a handful of roster moves ahead of Tuesday’s practice.


The Seahawks added a pair of receivers on Tuesday, signing Nyqwan Murray, who was with the team earlier in camp, as well as Kahlil Lewis. Receiver Amara Darboh was waived, while defensive tackle Nazair Jones and cornerback Kalan Reed were placed on injured reserve.

Murray, an undrafted rookie out of Florida State, took part in Seattle's rookie minicamp in May, then was signed early in camp before being waived the following week. The 5-foot-11, 193-pound Murray had 54 catches for 744 yards and three touchdowns during his final season at FSU.

Lewis, who is 5-foot-11, 195 pounds, is an undrafted rookie out of Cincinnati who initially signed with Atlanta following the draft, then was waived last week. Lewis led the Bearcats in receiving each of the past three years, and finished his college career with 168 catches for 2,116 yards and 21 touchdowns.

Darboh, a 2017 third-round pick, was waived by the Seahawks last year and claimed by New England, only to return to Seattle where he spent the year on injured reserve after failing a physical with the Patriots. Jones, also a 2017 third-rounder, has been sidelined recently due to a knee injury. Reed, a 2016 seventh-round pick by Tennessee, signed with Seattle last year, and had been competing for the nickel cornerback job with Akeem King, Jamar Taylor and Ugo Amadi. Reed missed Saturday's preseason game in Los Angeles with a neck injury, however, and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said following the game that Reed was scheduled to see a specialist about that injury.
