Seahawks Release TE Gabe Holmes & DB Tyvis Powell From Practice Squad

The Seattle Seahawks officially signed DE Branden Jackson to their practice squad and released TE Gabe Holmes and DB Tyvis Powell from the unit on Tuesday.

The Seahawks’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. RB Mike Davis
  2. C Joey Hunt (Exception)
  3. TE Tyrone Swoope
  4. DB Mike Tyson
  5. QB Trevone Boykin (Exception)
  6. WR David Moore
  7. TE Gabe Holmes
  8. DB Akeem King
  9. S Tyvis Powell
  10. LB Joseph Jones
  11. DE Branden Jackson

Holmes, 26, wound up signing on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue back in May of 2015. He managed to make the 53-man roster coming out of preseason, but was cut loose just a few weeks later.

The Raiders later signed him to their practice squad after he cleared waivers and elected to bring Holmes back on a one-year, exclusive rights contract this past April. Unfortunately, Oakland waived him coming out of the preseason.

Holmes has yet to appear in an NFL game.
