Seahawks sign WR Morrell Presley, waive TE Chase Dixon and OL Jared Smith

A few roster moves for the Seahawks today on the eve of training camp.

First, the team has officially signed WR Morrell Presley, who we wrote about yesterday. He began his career at UCLA and finished it at NCAA Division II California University of Pennslyvania. He tried out for the team during the rookie mini-camp.

Next, according to the NFL transaction wire, the team has waived OL Jared Smith, with an injured designation, as well as undrafted free agent tight end Chase Dixon.

Smith was a seventh-round pick out of New Hampshire in 2013 who was initially cut and signed to the practice squad, and then placed on Injured Reserve with a knee injury. The assumption is the knee is the reason he is being waived with the injured designation.

Dixon, from Central Arkansas, was signed as an undrafted free agent immediately following the draft, and given a bonus of $12,500, third highest to any UDFA behind the $15,000 to Jackson Jeffcoat and Andru Pulu (the latter also since waived).

That leaves the Seahawks with 88 players on their current roster, two shy of the limit. So expect the Seahawks to sign two more players before camp opens tomorrow.
