Seattle Seahawks add 4 players to practice squad


The Seattle Seahawks made a flurry of roster moves on Tuesday, adding four players to their practice squad and releasing two other players to make room.

The four new Seahawks are tight end Tyrone Swoopes, safety Adrian Colbert, tackle Chad Wheeler and defensive back Brian Allen.

In order to clear room, the Seahawks released cornerback Parry Nickerson and linebacker Malik Carney.

Last week’s promotion of Jacob Hollister and Jordan Roos from the practice squad had cleared two spots already.

Swoopes has been with the Seahawks for parts of the last two seasons, appearing in two games and hauling in one reception last season for 23 yards.

He was waived with an injury settlement back in August, but will return to the team – giving them much-needed depth at tight end following Will Dissly’s season-ending injury.

Colbert was most recently on Seattle’s active roster, but he was a healthy inactive for two straight weeks before the team waived him to make room for Hollister and Roos. He went unclaimed on waivers and will rejoin Seattle’s practice squad with the hopes of returning to the active roster in short order.

Allen was a fifth-round pick by the Steelers in 2017 out of the University of Utah – where he was teammates with Cody Barton and Marquise Blair. Allen played in 16 NFL games over the past two seasons, but was waived by Pittsburgh just before the start of the 2019 season.

Wheeler was signed by the Giants out of USC in 2017 as an undrafted free agent, and ended up starting 14 games for them in 2018. He gives the Seahawks much-needed depth at the tackle spot following the injury to Duane Brown.
