Seahawks Cut Nine Players

The Seattle Seahawks announced Sunday that they’ve cut nine players from their roster to get down to the 80-man limit ahead of training camp. 

The full list of roster cuts for the Seahawks includes:

  1. RB Patrick Carr
  2. WR Seth Dawkins
  3. G Kahlil McKenzie
  4. DB Josh Norwood
  5. G Jordan Roos
  6. LB Sutton Smith
  7. TE Dominick Wood-Anderson
  8. C Joey Hunt
  9. DE Branden Jackson

A number of teams have already begun the process of trimming their roster down to 80 players ahead of training camp. Teams have the option to either carry 90 players as part of split squads or cut their roster down to 80 players.

Jackson, 27, originally signed on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech back in May of 2016 but was cut loose coming out of the preseason and signed him to their practice squad.

The Raiders eventually promoted him to their active roster but, once again, made him among their final roster cuts the following preseason. Seattle signed him to their practice squad in September of 2017 and was eventually promoted to the active roster.

He returned to the Seahawks as an exclusive rights free agent for the 2018 and 2019 seasons before signing a one-year, restricted deal with Seattle this offseason worth $2.133 million.

In 2019, Jackson appeared in 15 games and recorded 20 total tackles and two sacks. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 101 overall edge defender out of 107 qualifying players.

Hunt, 26, is a former sixth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2016. He was entering the second year of his four-year rookie contract when Seattle cut him loose coming out of the preseason and re-signed to their practice squad.

The Seahawks placed an original-round tender on Hunt that would have cost them $2.133 million for the 2020 season.

In 2019, Hunt appeared in 14 games for the Seahawks and started eight. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 35 overall center out of 37 qualifying players.
