  • Meh, third string TE, so whatever, but why did we even bother cutting McGrath if this was the best option? Anyone know anything about this dude's blocking ability? His rep as a pass catcher is terrible.

  • He had a highlight TD catch in preseason against us during his rookie year. That's all I know about him

    BOOOOOO

    I'm mystified by some of these moves, but I guess that is why Carroll and Schneider get paid the big bucks and I'm some dude posting on a message board.

    I like how you continue to take petty shots at me but its funny how McGrath is currently on a NFL roster and was claimed by the first team that could. So its possible he could of landed on the 30 other teams.


    On Kellen Davis: I wouldn't sleep on Davis, he's basically, at best 2012 Anthony McCoy without considerable upside. I would grade Davis out to be a slightly better blocker than McCoy. Davis is bigger, and started a lot of games for the Bears in that capacity more so than he was used as a pass-catcher.

    He should be a servicable player.

    It sucks about Bradford but oh well. Person is probably being kept because of Cable. And they probably like Lotulelei's upside better or something.

    What's funny to me is for all the flack Morgan has gotten from this fan base, he's still here.

    I would have kept Bradford over Morgan. I constantly forget that Morgan even made the final 53, which says a lot about how I perceive his value. I'm guessing his ability to (ineffectively) play LEO saved him. Maybe special teams, too. Just a really baffling move.

  • Stat of the day:

    with 80 games of NFL playing experience, the Kellen Davis signing makes him the 3rd most experienced offensive player for Seattle behind Zach Miller (94gms) and Marshawn Lynch (89 gms)


    okay... maybe not the BEST stat of the day, but I always wanted to say that and have some background music from the Dan Patrick show play.

    "Cleveland guaranteed Davis $165,000 -- including a $65,000 signing bonus -- when it signed him to a one-year deal in March. Davis was abused as a blocker this preseason, and he caught just five passes for 43 yards in exhibition play."

    Awesome! He can't even block.

  • Can any of the resident gurus please shed light on how cutting Bradford of all back up LBers is a better decision than one of the scrubs like some mentioned above? Who is Wagners back up? I do not get it. I understand the need to bring this guy in to a degree. Although I had no issue with McGrath really. I don't get it. Someone please help me understand this move. In any other circumstance I would be tempted to say locker room issues. Being he is an SC guy and a converted RB to LBer that's been here for 3 seasons I don't see that being it.

  • Every single Bears fans I have heard comment on him, they have absolutely nothing positive to say about Davis, at all.
    He was also cut by the Browns a few weeks ago, he's this years Evan Moore

  • Summation of Wednesday's roster moves ..... with source link.
    Pete Carroll confirmed that the Seattle Seahawks have signed tight end Kellen Davis. In order to bring Davis on the roster, the Seahawks released linebacker Allen Bradford.
    Davis will wear No. 87.
    The Seahawks also brought back defensive end Ty Powell and offensive lineman Ryan Seymour to the practice squad, and let go of offensive lineman Jared Smith and defensive tackle Michael Brooks.

    So what, McGrath landed on another NFL team. Great for him. He didn't land a spot on the Seahawks. He didn't impress the coaches and Schneider enough to earn a spot. It's a fact. If he was good enough, he would be on the team.

    The Seahawks on Tuesday also tried out wide receiver Isaiah Stanback, the former Washington Huskies standout, according to the NFP. Citing an anonymous league source, the NFP’s Aaron Wilson reported that Seattle also auditioned defensive end Hall Davis, linebacker Justin Cole, defensive back Akeem Auguste, defensive tackle Frank Okam and wide receiver Ronald Johnson.

    Tyouts by tight ends Daniel Fells and the versatile Dorin Dickerson also were mentioned.
