Charly Martin Added to the Practice Squad

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • http://www.seahawks.com/team/transactions.html

    As many suspected, Martin was added to the practice squad today. Still no word on who is filling his roster spot, but my money is on Thurmond.

  • I'm surprised that he had PS eligibility left. He's been around for a while!

  • They had to activate him or put him out for the season.

    Could be making room for a LB? I know Trufant may have lost a step, but i sure like his vet experience. I hope they don't unplug him. I guess if a corner got hurt we would rather have Thurmond. No word on anyone going down to the minors so that's 11 DBs.. is it Bandit time again ???

    Well in pete's presser, he insinuated that they've decided on what they want to do with Thurmond, they just don't want to make it public yet. They still could sign a linebacker if necessary and release someone else. It's all up in the air, and they may be waiting for the test results on KJ and Carpenter today

    I didn't think he would be. But not only did he not join the NFL until 2009, but apparently he sat out the entire 2011 season. That makes this officially his third year, which is still eligible as long as they meet some conditions.

    PS limits players to only have played 9 regular season games... Martin has played in 12. Unless there's some loophole, I see the NFL saying no and undo it.


    EDIT: never mind its nine games in a single accrued season.

  • Walter Thurmond is promoted to the roster.
    I enjoy ruining threads by making them about personal attacks and then commenting about how personal attacks make the other person's argument invalid.

  • I like Martin. Of the few times I've seen him targeted, he has battled for the the catch....including bruising a lung during game 1. Glad he is at least on the PS.

    If Kearse laughs after dropping a ball again, he will be on my meh list. I'd rather have a player who will play hard with good fundamentals.
