The Seahawks on Tuesday added two receivers to the practice squad to help bolster the depth a day after losing B.J. Daniels to the Houston Texans.
A day after losing receiver/quarterback B.J. Daniels off the practice squad when he signed to the 53-man roster of the Houston Texans, the Seahawks added two receivers to the practice squad to bolster depth at that position.
The additions of the two give Seattle four receivers on its practice squad joining Kasen Williams, the former Skyline and UW standout, and Douglas McNeil III. Seattle released DT Justin Hamilton off the practice squad, which along with losing Daniels opened up two spots on the 10-man practice squad.
The Seahawks undoubtedly wanted to keep the receiver numbers up on the practice squad after losing Daniels — who will play quarterback for the Texans but was a receiver primarily this season for Seattle — and with having just four receivers on the current 53-man roster.
The four receivers on the 53-man roster are Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, Tyler Lockett and Kevin Smith. Seattle played with just four WRs last week against the Browns but usually has had at least five on the 53-man roster.
Daniels was signed by Houston Monday after the team lost quarterback T.J. Yates to a season-ending knee injury Sunday. However, the Texans may also use Daniels at other spots. As this story details, Houston’s offensive coordinator had some familiarity with Daniels which helped lead to the team’s interest in him.
Daniels is listed as Houston’s third-team QB this week behind Brian Hoyer and Brandon Weeden. But Hoyer remains going through the NFL’s concussion protocol.
