Seahawks Sign LB Tanner Muse To 53-Man Roster, Add LB Christian Jones To Practice Squad

The Seahawks promoted linebacker Tanner Muse from the practice squad Wednesday and added veteran linebacker Christian Jones to the practice squad.


In Monday night's season-opening victory, Tanner Muse led the Seahawks with two special teams tackles after being elevated off of the practice squad earlier in the day, a performance that helped the linebacker earn a promotion.

On Wednesday, Muse was signed to the 53-man roster, giving the Seahawks another depth option at inside linebacker in addition to a proven special teams contributor. With a spot open on the practice squad, the Seahawks added veteran linebacker Christian Jones.

Muse, a 2020 third-round pick by the Raiders, joined the Seahawks' practice squad last season, and appeared in six games.

Jones, who came into the league as an undrafted free agent in 2014, spent four seasons with the Bears, appearing in 63 games with 31 starts. He then joined the Lions in 2018, serving as a starting linebacker for three seasons. Jones rejoined the Bears last season, appearing in 17 games with one start.
