Etling has spent time with the Seahawks before so he provides a familiar face to boost their quarterback depth.
Seattle’s practice squad now includes:
- DT Myles Adams
- LB Aaron Donkor (International)
- G Greg Eiland
- WR Aaron Fuller
- DT Jarrod Hewitt
- WR Cade Johnson
- RB Josh Johnson
- G Pier-Olivier Lestage
- WR Cody Thompson
- DB Michael Jackson
- G Phil Haynes
- DB Gavin Heslop
- LB Tanner Muse
- TE Ryan Izzo
- WR Phillip Dorsett
- QB Jake Luton
- QB Danny Etling
Etling, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the Patriots back in 2019. He agreed to a four-year, $2,564,028 contract that included a $104,028 signing bonus with the Patriots, but was released coming out of the preseason.
The Patriots later re-signed Etling to their practice squad. New England re-signed Etling to a futures deal last year but he was, once again, waived later claimed by the Falcons.
Atlanta brought Etling back on a futures contract this past January before waiving him last month after coming off their COVID-19 list. The Seahawks quickly claimed Etling from Atlanta in August. After being waived by Seattle, Etling was claimed again by the Vikings. He was waived again later in camp.
During his college career at Purdue and LSU, Etling threw for 7,076 yards while completing 57.9 percent of his passes to go along with 43 touchdowns and 19 interceptions.
