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.

Best news of the day so far?

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

I really liked McGrath in the preseason. Good move.

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.

Moore gave us nothing. It's too bad because he has the tools. I wonder if Winslow would take the minimum to be part of a playoff team?

God speed Evan. Had what we wanted in a receiving TE, just never seemed to show during games.

Haha, John McGrath! I've have met John before, a cool guy and I like his writing. But not exactly tight end material.

Maybe the stress got to him. I don't think he ever caught a ball. He is young and I suspect will get some calls for camp in '13

Shiancoe played 4-5 seasons in Bevell's offense in Minn.

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.

Isn't Sean Gaelic for John? So he was kind of right...

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?

Let this be a lesson, when Cleveland releases someone. It's game over.

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.

It's official.

Seattle Seahawks ‏@Seahawks
TE Evan Moore has been released & TE Sean McGrath has been signed from the practice squad to fill the 53-man roster.

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.

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).

:P

So ... :hmmmm: ... I see 54 players listed on .com's active list and only 7 players listed on their practice squad.

Wonder who is coming off the active roster ........ Winston Guy perhaps?

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!
