49ers sign Seymour off Seahawks’ practice squad

The 49ers today signed guard Ryan Seymour off of Seattle’s practice squad to their 53-man active roster.

Practice squad players can be signed to active rosters at any time, and Brian McIntyre reports that Seymour will get a pretty good raise by making the move:

Seymour was one of Seattle’s four seventh-round picks in the 2013 draft, and had been on the practice squad since September after being released in the initial cutdown to 53 (he actually was released again off the PS in September in some more roster shuffling but then quickly re-signed and had been on the practice squad since).

The 49ers apparently are looking for some depth on their OL with standout Mike Iupati continuing to battle a knee injury.

The 49ers also signed WR Devon Wylie to their practice squad. Wylie spent last week on Seattle’s practice squad before being released over the weekend when the Seahawks re-signed DT Michael Brooks.

The Seymour move means Seattle has one open spot on its eight-man practice squad.

It also means Seattle has now lost three of its 11 2013 draft picks. Also gone are WR Chris Harper, also signed by the 49ers when the Seahawks cut him in the cutdown to 53 and now with the Packers, and LB Ty Powell, now with the Bills.
