Report says Seahawks waive Jeffcoat and Terrell Thomas

While the Seahawks have yet to announce any moves, a Tweet from Tom Pelissero of USA Today says the team has waived linebacker Jackson Jeffcoat and safety Terrell Thomas.

Jeffcoat was an undrafted free agent from Texas whom the team gave a $15,000 bonus when signing him as the draft ended, tied for the most it paid any UDFA.

The team originally envisioned Jeffcoat as a potential LEO, or pass rushing defensive end, after he ranked third in the nation in sacks at Texas with 13. But he was moved to linebacker midway through camp, a spot where the team has a pretty big logjam, especially now with a number of injured players returning, or close to returning.

If Jeffcoat clears waivers, the team could sign him to its 10-person practice squad, though that cannot happen until Aug. 31, after the cutdown to the opening day roster limit of 53.

Thomas, who played for Pete Carroll at USC, as signed as a free agent early in camp but had not appeared to make any move up the depth chart at cornerback.

Teams have to cut to 75 by Tuesday at 1 p.m. Pacific time.

These moves leave the Seahawks at 88.
