Report: Mayowa claimed by Raiders, Hauptmann by Browns

According to a report form Tom Pelissero of USA Today, the Oakland Raiders have claimed Benson Mayowa and the Cleveland Browns have claimed Caylin Hauptmann, each of whom was waived by the Seahawks on Saturday:

Seattle had undoubtedly hoped that the two would slip through waivers so that the Seahawks could then sign them to their practice squad.

Instead, each now becomes a member of the 53-man rosters of those two teams.

Each were players that at one point were considered just about locks to make the 53-man roster, especially Mayowa, who spent all of last season on the 53 after making the team as an undrafted free agent. But he essentially lost a spot as a backup rush end to O’Brien Schofield.

Hauptmann was likely the odd man out when the Seahawks decided to keep just nine offensive linemen.

The Browns now have four OLs on their roster who have been with the Seahawks in the last year — Hauptmann (who the Seahawks claimed off Cleveland’s practice squad a year ago), Paul McQuistan, Michael Bowie and Ryan Seymour (who the Browns claimed today after he was waived by the 49ers).

So far, it appears all of the other Seahawks released Saturday went unclaimed. Seattle will set its initial 10-man practice squad later today.
