Seahawks Promote WR Penny Hart To 53-Man Roster

Penny Hart was added to the 53-man roster Tuesday, two days after being signed to the practice squad. 


The Seahawks made a change at receiver Tuesday, promoting Penny Hart from the practice squad to the 53-man roster and waiving John Ursua.

Hart, 24, first joined the Seahawks as a member of the practice squad midway through the 2019 season, then signed a reserve/future contract in January. Hart enjoyed a strong training camp, but was part of the initial roster cuts Saturday, then re-signed to the practice squad after clearing waivers.

Hart went undrafted out of Georgia State in 2019, then signed with Indianapolis as a free agent. He began last season on injured reserve, then was later waived with an injury settlement before eventually landing on Seattle's practice squad. Hart had a prolific career at Georgia State, catching 203 passes for 2,960 yards and 19 touchdowns, twice earning first-team All-Sun Belt honors.

Ursua, a seventh-round pick out of Hawaii in 2019, appeared in three games last season, catching one pass for 11 yards, albeit it was a noteworthy one reception, allowing Seattle to convert on fourth down late in a Week 17 game against San Francisco to keep alive Seattle's final offensive possession that ended inches short of a go-ahead touchdown.
