Seahawks Make Roster Moves To Reach 75-Player Limit

The Seahawks waived nine players Tuesday to reach the 75-player limit ahead of Tuesday's roster deadline.

The Seahawks reduced their roster to 75 players ahead of Tuesday's deadline. Seattle began making moves to reduce its roster Monday.

The Seahawks waived/injured running back George Farmer, defensive back Trovon Reed, defensive end Josh Shirley and receiver Kevin Smith. All of those players will revert to Seattle's injured reserve list if they clear waivers Wednesday. The Seahawks also waived running back Zac Brooks, a seventh-round pick in this year's draft, linebacker Quayshawn Nealy, linebacker Pete Robertson, guard Kristjan Sokoli and center Patrick Lewis.

That list includes three players who were on last year's regular-season roster—Smith, who has been dealing with a hamstring injury for most of camp, Sokoli, a sixth-round pick in 2015 who Seattle moved from defense to offense, and Lewis, who started nine games last season after replacing Drew Nowak at center.

NFL teams have until Saturday at 1 p.m. PT to reduce their rosters to 53 players.


Take a player-by-player look at the Seattle Seahawks 75-man roster following Tuesday's NFL-mandated roster reduction.
