The Seahawks made several roster moves Wednesday some necessitated by injuries and others created potential playing opportunities for several players. Special team specialist Neiko Thorpe was placed on the injured reserve list after missing the last two games due to a Hip Injury.
PRACTICE SQUAD ADDITIONS
The team added Damon ( Snacks ) Harrison, cornerback DeMarkus Acy, and linebacker Michael Divinity. Of the three signings, Harrison could have an immediate impact.
The Seahawks philosophy of rotating the Defensive line has been hampered this season due to D-Line injuries, so the addition of Harrison is for immediate reinforcements. The nine-year veteran known as “ Snacks “ is a former first-team All- pro with experience but not much action in the last year. Harrison’s last NFL team was the Detroit Lions in 2019. Harrison and the Lions are reported to have had a mutual parting of the ways last spring. The question surrounding Harrison is his fitness since he did not practice in spring works out and there was no NFL training camps this year.
The Seahawks have four defensive tackles on their active rosters. Starters Jarran Reed, Poona Ford, L. J. Collier and Benson Mayowa with Anthony Rush, Bryan Mone, and Alton Robinson serving as backups.
Outside of Harrison, the players added to the practice squad have had limited NFL experience. Acy was an undrafted rookie out of Missouri and was initially signed by the San Francisco 49ers. Divinity went undrafted out of LSU this year and initially signed with Tampa Bay. He appeared in 29 games over four seasons, recording 105 tackles, 8.0 sacks, and 17 tackles for loss.
Bullard, a 2016 third-round pick of the Chicago Bears, appeared in 46 games over three seasons with Chicago, starting five, then spent last season with the Arizona Cardinals, starting six of nine games played.
