The Seahawks announced this morning they placed defensive tackle Jesse Williams on injured reserve, released wide receiver Randall Carroll and signed linebacker Marcus Dowtin.
Dowtin originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the New York Jets after the 2012 NFL Draft. He has also played for the Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills and New York Giants. He has played in 11 career games with 10 tackles (eight solo).
The moves also leave room for Marshawn Lynch to be re-instated off the reserve/did not report list and put the roster at the NFL training camp maximum of 90. Lynch walked onto the field for the first time this training camp at about 10:30 a.m., doing so via a side exit.
