Seahawks fill out practice squad with WR Matthews, TE Brackett

In case you missed the news via Twitter earlier, the Seahawks today got their practice squad back up to the maximum 10 players by signing receiver Chris Matthews and tight end Brett Brackett.

Matthews is the former CFL Offensive Rookie of the Year who was with the Seahawks through camp until being released in the final cutdown to 53, and then after being initially re-signed to the practice squad was released again in early September. Seattle on Tuesday waived receiver Phil Bates, who then signed with Cleveland’s practice squad. At 6-5, 218, Matthews gives Seattle another big receiver project as well as a big receiver to practice against each week.

Bracektt was signed to the active roster last week, played one play against Carolina, and then waived on Tuesday along with Bates, and now is back on the practice squad.
