OL Hauptmann joining Seahawks

Seattle has filled the spot on the 53-man roster created by the loss of Russell Okung for two months by reportedly signing OL Caylin Hauptmann, who had been on the practice squad of the Cleveland Browns. UPDATE — Since first posting this I have independently confirmed that Hauptmann will join the team Monday as Brian McIntyre also detailed earlier.

The signing was reported by several outlets and by Hauptmann on his Twitter page.

Hauptmann is a native of Los Angeles who played at Florida International University.

Hauptmann was an undrafted free agent who was released in the cutdown to 53 and then re-signed to Cleveland’s practice squad.

Hauptmann was playing primarily guard for the Browns, a spot that is thin now for the Seahawks with Paul McQuistan moving from guard to tackle to take the place of Okung, who was placed on the Injured Reserve/Designated to Return list on Friday, and with Michael Bowie and Alvin Bailey also now competing for time at tackle.

Here is Hauptmann’s NFL.com profile.

The Seahawks also today released WR Bryan Walters off of their practice squad. No addition was announced.
