The Seahawks added to their tight end depth ahead of their regular-season opener in Indianapolis, promoting Tyler Mabry from their practice squad to the 53-man roster.
Mabry, who signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Maryland in 2020, spent last season on the practice squad. He gives the Seahawks another option at tight end if Colby Parkinson isn't ready for the opener. Seattle figures to rely heavily on Gerald Everett and Will Dissly at that position, but with Parkinson still working his way back from a foot injury—Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said last week that it's still uncertain if Parkinson would be able to return this week—Mabry gives needed depth if Parkinson can't go or is limited in his playing time.
With Mabry signing to the active roster, the Seahawks had an open spot on the practice squad, which they filled by signing guard Jordan Simmons. Simmons, who went undrafted out of USC in 2017, has spent the past three seasons with Seattle, starting nine games and appearing in 20, including six starts at left guard last season.
