The Seahawks made a handful of roster moves Sunday, adding receivers Marvin Bracy, a two-sport athlete who represented the USA in the 100-meter dash in the 2016 Olympics, as well as undrafted rookie Malik Turner. Long snapper Tanner Carew and tight end Kayaune Ross were waived to make room on the 90-man roster.
Bracy, 24, went to Florida State as a top recruit in both football and track & field, but after redshirting his freshman year, he left school to turn pro as a sprinter. Bracy is a three-time 60-meter champion at the U.S Indoor Track & Field Championships, and has recorded a personal best of 9.93 seconds in the 100-meter dash.
Bracy returned to football last year, signing with the Indianapolis Colts in August. He was waived prior to the start of the season. Bracy won't be the only receiver with a track background hoping to earn a spot on Seattle's roster. Second-year wideout Cyril Grayson Jr. was an All-American sprinter at LSU, then signed with the Seahawks as a free agent last spring. He spent most of the 2017 season on Seattle's practice squad.
Turner, who is 6-foot-2, 202 pounds, played at Illinois where he had 143 career receptions for 1,804 yards and 10 touchdowns. Turner took part in rookie minicamp with the Green Bay Packers as a tryout player.
Carew signed with the Seahawks this spring as an undrafted rookie out of Oregon. Tyler Ott, Seattle's long snapper last season, is now the only long snapper on the roster. Ross, an undrafted rookie out of Kentucky, signed with the Seahawks on Thursday and took part in the first two days of camp.
