Seahawks sign WR Phil Bates to practice squad, release LB Allen Bradford

Seattle re-signed receiver Phil Bates to its practice squad today, releasing linebacker Allen Bradford to make room on the 10-man team.

Bates was on the 53-man active roster for the season opener against Green Bay — a game for which Seattle had eight receivers on its roster —  but was inactive on gameday and did not play.

The Seahawks released Bates on Saturday, a move that cleared the way fro the addition of offensive tackle Andrew McDonald.

Bates then  cleared waivers and was able to re-sign to the practice squad.

Bradford, who played for coach Pete Carroll at USC and was on Seattle’s opening 53-man roster in 2013, had been added to the practice squad on Saturday.
