Seahawks Sign TE Gabe Holmes & CB Akeem King To Practice Squad

The Seattle Seahawks have signed TE Gabe Holmes and CB Akeem King to their practice squad on Wednesday.

The Seahawks’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. RB Mike Davis
  2. C Joey Hunt (Exception)
  3. DT Garrison Smith
  4. TE Tyrone Swoope
  5. DB Mike Tyson
  6. QB Trevone Boykin (Exception)
  7. LB Austin Calitro
  8. WR David Moore
  9. TE Gabe Holmes
  10. CB Akeem King

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.
