Some personnel news to pass along this afternoon.
— First, the Seahawks have waived kicker Carson Wiggs, who was attempting to mount a battle with Steven Hauschka for the placekicking job. To take his spot on the 90-man roster, Seattle has signed defensive tackle DeWayne Cherrington, who had worked out for the team last week.
Wiggs was 1-2 on field goals for the Seahawks and 4-4 on PATs.
Cherrington was with the Patriots for about a month before being cut in June.
The addition of Cherrington gives Seattle nine players listed primarily as defensive tackles on its roster.
— Seahawks coach Pete Carroll made his usual Monday appearance on the team’s flagship radio station, ESPN 710 Seattle, and said that while tight end Zach Miller will return to practice this week, he won’t play Friday at Green Bay (link to interview here).
Carroll also said he hopes that Bruce Irvin, who has been hobbled by a groin injury, will be able to play.
He also said he expects defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (groin), receiver Bryan Walters (hamstring) and cornerback Ron Parker (hamstring) to return to practice this week.
NFL teams will have to cut from 90 to 75 by 1 p.m. Pacific time on Aug. 27, so this begins to become an especially critical time for players attempting to make the team.
