Seahawks Sign 15 To Practice Squad, Including CB Artie Burns

The Seahawks signed 15 players to their practice squad a day after reducing their roster to 53 players, including cornerback Artie Burns, who was released earlier in the day.


Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said on Saturday that his hope was to keep as many players around as possible from the 90-man roster, and sure enough, all 15 players signed to the practice squad Wednesday were with the team in training camp.

Prior to Wednesday's practice, the Seahawks signed the following 15 players to their practice squad:

  • QB Holton Ahlers
  • OLB Levi Bell
  • CB Lance Boykin
  • CB Artie Burns
  • T Greg Eiland
  • NT Matthew Gotel
  • C Joey Hunt
  • WR Cade Johnson
  • RB Bryant Koback
  • WR Matt Landers
  • TE Tyler Mabry
  • LB Patrick O'Connell
  • S Ty Okada
  • RB SaRodorick Thompson
  • WR Easop Winston Jr.

Burns, who was released earlier in the day as the Seahawks made room on the roster for waiver claims the team made on Wednesday, could immediately sign to the practice squad because, as a vested veteran, he is not subject to waivers. Koback was waived last week, while the other 13 players signed to the practice squad were waived Tuesday as part of the moves to get the roster down to 53 players.

The Seahawks have one open spot on the practice squad.
