As Jacksonville comes to town this week it does so with three players on its active 53-man roster who were part of Seattle’s original 90-man training camp roster — cornerback Will Blackmon, linebacker Kyle Knox and safety Winston Guy.
As proof of how deep Seattle’s training camp roster was, though, that trio of Jaguars are just three of 11 players who were on the Seahawks’ training camp roster who are now on the active rosters of other NFL teams.
Here are the rest:
OL Mike Person, St. Louis
MLB Allen Bradford, New York Giants
OL John Moffitt, Denver
DL Jaye Howard, Kansas City
TE Sean McGrath, Kansas City
CB Ron Parker, Kansas City
WR Chris Harper, San Francisco
QB Brady Quinn, New York Jets
Moffitt was traded, but the other 10 were released, either in the cutdown to 75 or 53 before the season, or since the season started.
None are starting, but the three Jaguars and the three players with the Chiefs have all been playing regularly (Parker had a sacked and a forced fumble and recovery as the Chiefs beat the Cowboys Sunday).
So yeah, all that talk of how deep Seattle’s roster was when the year began appears to have had merit.
