The Seahawks added two players to their practice squad on Wednesday, including 2020 third-round pick Tanner Muse, a linebacker out of Clemson who was waived by the Raiders this week. Also signing Wednesday was former University of Washington tight end DeShon Williams.

Muse, who won two national championships at Clemson, was a third-team AP All-American and first-team All-ACC selection, as well as a team captain during a senior season in which he recorded 73 tackles, 6.0 tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks, five pass breakups and four interceptions. Muse missed his entire rookie season with a toe injury, then was waived by the Raiders Monday to make room on the roster for the signing of K.J. Wright.

Williams, who went undrafted in 2019, participated in Washington's Pro Day this spring, and in July signed with the Tri-City Rush, an indoor football team in the American West Football Conference. At Washington, Williams appeared in two games after transferring from Colorado State-Pueblo.

The Seahawks had two open spots on the practice squad after promoting cornerback John Reid and receiver Penny Hart to the 53-man roster on Tuesday.
