The Seahawks on Thursday made several roster moves, bringing back a pair of players who have been with the team previously in safety Keenan Lambert and running back Cameron Marshall while releasing snapper Drew Ferris and making the retirement of Chris Clemons official.
The moves give the Seahawks the maximum 90 players on their training camp roster.
Clemons, who played with team from 2010-13 and then was re-signed in the spring as a free agent, told the team last week he was retiring but the move did not become official until Thursday. He was officially put on the reserve/retired list.
The release of Ferris means that for now, the snapping job belongs to Nolan Frese, who was signed as a free agent in June.

Lambert was with the Seahawks in training camp last year before being cut before the season. He eventually signed with Oakland and played in five games. Lambert is the half-brother of Kam Chancellor.
Marshall, who played at Arizona State, was signed by the Seahawks in February and then released in May. He played in the CFL the last three seasons.
His signing helps bolster depth at a running back spot that has grown thin in camp. Third-round pick C.J. Prosise has been out since the first day with a hamstring injury while free agent Tre Madden is out with an arm injury and seventh-round pick Zac Brooks was not in uniform for the beginning of Thursday’s practice.
Thomas Rawls also remains sidelined while rehabbing from a broken ankle suffered last December. Both Rawls and tight end Jimmy Graham remain on the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) list.
