Like every other team in the NFL, the Seattle Seahawks had to make some tough roster decisions the past few days. In trimming the roster down to 53 players, the Seahawks released a few guys that were expected to make the team, surprising many. With that said, here are the Seahawks five most surprising roster cuts.
Although the Seahawks are loaded at the running back position, Spencer Ware looked good in the preseason, running with decisiveness and explosiveness. Based on his performance alone, Ware probably should have made the roster.
Considering the Seahawks lack of depth at the cornerback position, it was surprising to see Phillip Adams get the axe. Adams was inconsistent this preseason, but there isn’t a better alternative on the roster.
A massive fifth round selection this year, it was pretty surprising to see Jimmy Staten waived from the team. Staten has great athletic ability, but the injuries he battled this preseason likely did him in. Even so, Staten was a talented piece.
His struggles aside, releasing Eric Winston could prove to be a mistake for the Seahawks. Justin Britt has looked good at right tackle in place of Winston, however, in a backup capacity, Winston could have been a veteran leader on the team.
After sending a seventh round pick away to the Oakland Raiders this offseason in return for Terrelle Pryor, it was thought that Pryor would at least remain on the roster. Instead, the Seahawks have decided to part ways with the athletic signal-caller, which is surprising considering he has much more potential than Tarvaris Jackson at this point.
