The Seahawks made multiple moves on Sunday, waiving seven players and terminating the contracts of two veterans, trimming their roster to 81.

Running back Patrick Carr, wide receiver Seth Dawkins, guards Kahlil McKenzie and Jordan Roos, defensive back Josh Norwood, linebacker Sutton Smith, and tight end Dominick Wood-Anderson were waived, and the contracts of center Joey Hunt and defensive end Branden Jackson were terminated.


Carr, Patrick (RB - Houston)
Dawkins, Seth (WR - Louisville)
McKenzie, Kahlil (G - Tennessee)
Norwood, Josh (DB - West Virginia)
Roos, Jordan (G - Purdue)
Smith, Sutton (LB - Northern Illinois)
Wood-Anderson, Dominick (TE - Tennessee)


Hunt, Joey (C - Texas Christian)
Jackson, Branden (DE - Texas Tech)

Hunt appeared in 34 games with the Seahawks since being selected in the sixth round of the 2016 draft. He started in 11 of those games, including eight at center in place of an injured Justin Britt in 2019. He had signed a restricted free agent tender with the Seahawks in April.

Jackson, who also signed a restricted free agent tender in April, spent the past three seasons in Seattle, appearing in 15 games, starting three, and recording 2.0 sacks in 2019.

Roos appeared in a total of 14 games over three seasons for the Seahawks, contributing primarily on special teams while bouncing between the practice squad and the active roster.

McKenzie spent last season on the Seahawks practice squad before signing to play in the XFL in January of 2020. McKenzie was placed on injured reserve by the Los Angeles Wildcats on February 20, then had his contract terminated when the league shut down in April. He agreed to a contract with the Seahawks just days later.

Smith, a sixth round draft pick by the Steelers in 2019, played on the practice squads for the Steelers and Jaguars before being added to the Seahawks practice squad in December.

Carr, Dawkins, Norwood and Wood-Anderson had all signed as undrafted free agents following the 2020 NFL Draft.

With today's moves, the Seahawks have 81 players on the active roster.
