Seahawks Waived RB Kelvin Taylor

The Seattle Seahawks announced that they waived RB Kelvin Taylor in a corresponding roster move to signing RB Terrence Magee and RB J.D. McKissic.

Taylor, 23, was selected in the sixth round of this year’s draft by the 49ers. He was unable to make the 53-man roster coming out of the preseason but was later signed to their practice squad.

San Francisco elected to cut him loose and he later signed to the Seahawks’ practice squad. Seattle waived him shortly after signing him to make room for RB George Farmer but added him to their practice squad after clearing waivers.

The Seahawks promoted Taylor to their active roster last week, making this another short stint with the team. He will be eligible to re-sign to their practice squad once he passes through waivers.

During his college career at Florida, Taylor rushed for 2,108 on 486 carries (4.3 YPC) to go along with 24 receptions for 179 yards receiving and 23 total touchdowns over the course of three seasons.
