The Seahawks made a handful of roster moves before the start of Sunday’s training camp practice at Virginia Mason Athletic Center, waiving linebacker Warren Long, fullback Jalston Fowler, and tight end Je’Ron Hamm while re-signing center Marcus Henry and adding linebacker Jason Hall and cornerback Elijah Battle.
Henry, a former standout at nearby Bellevue High School, originally joined the Seahawks after participating in the team’s rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. Henry was waived by the Seahawks back on August 3, but the Boise State product returns to add depth to Seattle’s offensive line.
The 6-foot-2, 219-pound Hall, who played his college ball at Texas, re-signs with the Seahawks after originally joining the club as an undrafted rookie free agent following the 2018 NFL Draft. Hall was waived after Seahawks' rookie minicamp in May and now returns to the team to add depth at the linebacker spot.
Battle, a 5-foot-11, 191-pound cornerback out of West Virginia, signed with the Arizona Cardinals as an undrafted rookie free agent after the 2018 draft. He was released by the Cardinals this past May.
Long, a Northwestern product, was one of 15 undrafted rookie free agents to sign with the Seahawks following the 2018 draft. Long had two tackles, including one for loss in this past Thursday night’s preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts.
Hamm has bounced on and off the Seahawks’ roster the last couple weeks, originally signing on Day 1 of training camp back on July 26. He was waived on August 2 but re-signed four days later on August 6. Hamm saw four offensive snaps in the Seahawks’ first preseason game but did not record a catch.
Fowler, who spent the past three seasons with the Tennessee Titans, signed a reserve/future contract with the Seahawks this past January. His departure leaves the Seahawks with just one fullback on the 90-man roster in third-year pro Tre Madden.
