Seahawks Sign 14 To Practice Squad

The Seahawks added 14 players to their practice squad on Wednesday, all players who spent training camp with the team.


A day after making roster cuts, the Seahawks are bringing back 14 of the players who were waived or released a day earlier.

The Seahawks signed 14 players to their practice squad, though only 13 count towards the 16-player limit, as the team gets an exemption for German linebacker Aaron Donkor, who is part of the NFL's International Player Pathway Program.

Among the more experienced players added to the practice squad were defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche, a former first-round pick who got off to a strong start in camp, but who missed all three preseason games due to injury, and receiver Penny Hart, who played in 13 games last season. Not surprisingly seeing as the Seahawks have only four receivers on the 53-man roster, they added four receivers to the practice squad: Hart, Aaron Fuller, Cade Johnson and Cody Thompson.

Here is the full list of players signed to the practice squad:

DT Myles Adams
LB Aaron Donkor
G Greg Eiland
WR Aaron Fuller
WR Penny Hart
DT Jarrod Hewitt
WR Cade Johnson
RB Josh Johnson
G Pier-Olivier Lestage
TE Tyler Mabry
DT Robert Nkemdiche
CB John Reid
LB Jon Rhattigan
WR Cody Thompson
