The Seahawks have a mock game on Saturday. Ahead of the scrimmage, although, Seattle produced some moves to its tight finish area.

The Seahawks have their very first group scrimmage on Saturday about 1 pm PT. But this is not a day to rest. Seattle produced various moves to sign players and release a couple of other people. John Schneider and Pete Carroll never ever rest in an try to make the group greater.

Seattle indicators two tight ends

The Seahawks announced that they had signed Jackson Harris and Wes Saxton on Saturday. (By the way, attempt saying each these names with each other as speedy as you can 5 instances.) Harris took element in Seattle’s rookie minicamp this year as a tryout player. He clearly produced adequate of an impression for Seattle to bring him back for education camp and give him a opportunity to make the active roster or make it to the practice squad.

Harris played college at Georgia and did not do significantly as a receiver. He had eight catches in 4 years. But he has great size at six-foot-six-inches and 250 pounds. Seattle desires to see what he can do as a blocker largely. Who knows? Possibly he will become the subsequent George Fant and transition from tight finish to tackle in the NFL.

Sexton hasn’t played any meaningful snaps given that he was in college at South Alabama in 2015. Possibly Seattle sees him as a blocker as well?

Seattle releases two tight ends

To make area for Harris and Saxton, Seattle released Tyrone Swoopes and Justin Johnson. Swoopes has battled injuries given that he joined the Seahawks a couple of seasons ago. He did have 1 catch for 23 yards in 2018. Swoopes looked great catching the ball but is restricted general. He has largely been on Seattle’s practice squad for the final two years.

Subsequent: Seahawks projected roster for 2019, version two.

Johnson suffered the cruelest of NFL fates when he was injured in practice final week. He was a player on the bubble to make the group and operating his butt off to get there but suffered an Achilles injury. I want Johnson the ideal as it is challenging to be that close to your dream job and have an injury derail it. We are all human in the finish and should really have compassion for other people due to the fact of it.
