The Seahawks have a favorable issue in trimming down to their final 53-man roster. Unlike last season, they have several quality players that are in jeopardy of not making the squad.
Seattle has a few keys they need to fill, and there will most certainly be an addition or two from waiver wire claims. In particular, they could still use help at RT after letting three capable blockers walk before the season started. They also still need a power-blocking fullback.
There are a few position battles that will bring intrigue following their final preseason game, particularly with the offensive skill positions and the defensive backs. Several players will have their final audition tonight for a chance to make the final roster for the Seahawks.
There were a few surprises. The Seahawks opted to keep seven linebackers, giving Matt McCoy a roster spot. They kept nine defensive backs, knocking Mark LeGree off my list. They also kept two offensive lineman that I had not making the final cut, releasing two I had on my roster.
An injury to the DL last night also made room on the roster for a player I had not making the list.
Congratulations to those that made the final cut, and best wishes to those headed to the practice squad or other franchises.
