Update: McGrath move; Evan Moore released
Tue Dec 18, 2012 11:43 am
  • Update:
    Curtis Crabtree ‏@Curtis_Crabtree
    Pete Carroll said move to elevate TE Sean McGrath was due to need to get special teams contribution from that spot. "Good chance" to play.



    Danny O'Neil ‏@dannyoneil
    #Seahawks expected to release TE Evan Moore on Tuesday.

    Danny O'Neil ‏@dannyoneil
    Move with Moore likely made to add TE John McGrath from practice squad. @Curtis_Crabtree first reported McGrath promotion.

    Danny O'Neil ‏@dannyoneil
    Strike that. John McGrath is a Tacoma News Tribune columnist, SEAN McGrath is the #Seahawks TE.

  • Figured as much. Good luck Evan, just didn't work out but there might be a place for you.

  • Thank goodness. Evan needs to wake-up and get himself out of mediocrity. Hope he has success elsewhere on another team.

    I guess they didn't like Shiancoe???

    If this was week three, Shiancoe might be a better fit. But it's too late to integrate a new TE into our system.

    Still makes me wonder how well Winslow would have done this season if he accepted the pay cut. I think he could have done some good things, bad knees and all.

  • Well there goes my bold prediction for Evan Moore breaking out this week. Just like I predicted last week. And the week before.

    But hell yeah Sean McGrath! He looked damn good in the preseason.

  • Not much of a loss. I always have hope for a player when we bring them in, but Moore hasn't shown us anything at anytime since he's been here. Luckily we've had our TE's staying fairly healthy this season, so as our third option it hasn't had a huge affect on us one way or the other. Hope this "next guy up" works out better.

  • Good riddance. The guy showed no fire and just doesn't seem to have any football smarts. He's got the size and athleticism but it takes a whole lot more than that to succeed in the NFL.

    Don't worry, given the fact that you are named after Jordan Kent, I don't think any of us were relying upon your powers of prediction.

    They might have just brought him in to make sure they have a plan C if something goes wrong with McGrath.

    Typically teams don't release players that are doing good. On the other hand that Cleveland offense is lightning up all other NFL teams so maybe they are just so stacked on offense that they had to cut good players.....

    No?

  • Maybe he never wanted to play in Seattle and just wanted a quick pay check? So he stunk it up on purpose?

    I literally can't remember the guy catching a SINGLE pass. Sure I missed a couple, but WOW.

  • Too bad it didn't work out we could use more size at receivers. The guy plays a bit soft for his size tho. Goes to show you size without determination doesn't cut it.

  • I'd have thought this move would be to make room for Shiancoe, but McGrath did look decent in preseason. Maybe they're working both in somehow.

    No?

    Actually teams release good players all the time or trade them for nothing..due to scheme, off-field stuff etc.
    We got our best pass rusher as a throw in to a trade.

  • For a depth/3rd TE move, I really like this move!

    I was a big fan of McGrath in the preseason and I'm happy he's finally getting a shot. I try not to be too hard on these guys, but Moore was all kinds of awful.

  • Well it was painfully clear that Moore was a total non-performer here, in fact his contributions to the team were net zero. He caught no pass thrown to him and one was that wide open play against the 49ers that might easily have resulted in a TD that could have made a difference in that game was of course dropped. Beyond his drops which were several he did take a few mindless penalties but got a positive play from being interfered with in the endzone that gained yardage on one play. The play after resulted in a short yardage Lynch TD. That play netted a positive yardage gain of 5 yards or something similar. Moore was a significant disappointment here.

    He played well at Cleveland previously and got good yardage as a move type TE there, but did diddly here and finally wore out his welcome. McGrath at least has dependable hands and must have been outplaying Moore in practice. This move was long overdue.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken. The OLine still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!

    As evidenced by all the other teams that have lined up to sign him, incluing the Patriots who didn't play him and cut him after 2 weeks.

    Well, let's not TOTALLY trash him. He did have one catch -- 3rd down conversion against Miami (for like 4-5 yds).

    I heard they had some kind of roster exemption for Guy and don't have to get down below the roster limit until they activate him to play... or something like that.

    Really? ...... that would be one heck of a deal. They could keep him shut down without the risk of exposing him or someone else to waivers and pick up on Winston's development next year. That's an option they can live with!
