Seahawks Release DE David Bass, Promote DT Garrison Smith

The Seattle Seahawks announced Tuesday that they’ve released DE David Bass and promoted DT Garrison Smith to their active roster.

  • The Seahawks also released LB Austin Calitro from their practice squad and signed LB Joseph Jones and DB Tyvis Powell to the unit.

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

Bass, 27, is a former seventh-round pick of the Raiders back in 2013. He, unfortunately, lasted just a few months in Oakland before he was waived and later claimed off of waivers by the Bears.

Bass was on and off of the Bears roster for the next year before he was once again cut loose coming out of the preseason and later claimed off of waivers by the Titans.

The Seahawks signed him to a contract back in May.

In 2017, Bass has appeared in two games and recorded one tackle for the Seahawks.

Powell, 23, signed on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State back in May. He is in the first year of a three-year, $1.62 million contract and set to make a base salary of $450,000 for the 2016 season.

The Seahawks signed WR/KR Devin Hester to their active roster for the playoffs and waived Powell in a corresponding move. The Browns later claimed him off of waivers before waiving him back in June.

Powell was once again claimed off of waivers by the Colts but was, unfortunately, waived from injured reserve with a settlement on Tuesday.

In 2016, Powell appeared in eight games for the Seahawks and recorded three total tackles.
