Seahawks Sign Defensive End Branden Jackson Off Practice Squad, Waive Tight End Darrell Daniels

The Seahawks added defensive line depth Tuesday, promoting Branden Jackson from their practice squad. 

The Seahawks made a roster move Tuesday, signing defensive end Branden Jackson off of their practice squad. Tight end Darrell Daniels was waived to make room on the 53-man roster.

Jackson, 25, appeared in 12 games with the Seahawks last season, recording 11 tackles and half a sack. He was waived prior to the start of the season then signed to the practice squad. After going undrafted out of Texas Tech in 2016, Jackson signed with Oakland and split time during his rookie season between the practice squad and active roster. He signed to Seattle's practice squad early last season, then was promoted to the active roster in October.

Daniels, who played at the University of Washington before going undrafted in 2017, was acquired in a trade with Indianapolis prior to the start of the season, with the Colts getting receiver Marcus Johnson in return. Daniels saw the field in all three games this season, though only on special teams, playing a total of 27 snaps.
