Jones was able to play in three games.
OCTOBER 20 STAR RB HEADING TO NFC WEST
The Carolina Panthers have found a trade partner for star running back, Christian McCaffrey – the San Francisco 49ers. According to multiple reports, McCaffrey will be traded to the Seahawks’ NFC West rivals by the Panthers in exchange for multiple second day picks.
The Rams and Bills were also said to be in the running for McCaffrey
Just last week against the Rams, McCaffrey had 158 yards from scrimmage in 20 total touches. And for the season, the Stanford product has 670 yards from scrimmage on 118 touches, with three touchdowns, in an otherwise anemic offense.
OCT 19 PRACTICE SQUAD MOVES The Seahawks made two practice squad moves on Wednesday. To make room for Winston, Seattle signed Easop Winston, a former WSU standout, to their practice squad.
Winston caught 137 balls for 1,624 yards and 19 touchdowns for the Cougars over 26 games and spent time with the Rams and Saints before arriving in Seattle.
OCT 18 SEATTLE SIGNING The Seahawks on Tuesday had in for a visit veteran defensive tackle Vernon Butler and provided workouts to Notre Dame QB Jack Coan, receivers Dai’Jean Dixon, Dazz Newsome and Easop Winston (of Washington State) and have decided to sign Winston to the practice squad.
OCT 17 NFC WEST TRADE
The Arizona Cardinals have acquired wide receiver Robbie Anderson from the Carolina Panthers via trade.
Anderson was a Los Angeles Rams player on Sunday. His own head coach Steve Wilks kicked him out of the game.
” I was honestly confused,” Anderson stated after the game. Anderson said that he wanted to be in the game. I have never heard anyone yell at me to quit the game. That was a shock to me. I should be. I don’t think there is anyone that is a true competitor. Someone who knows the value they bring to the game and is passionate about it. They will be fine with being told not do something or being kicked out of something if they did nothing wrong. “
OCT 12 MARINERS/SEAHAWKS GAMEPLAN SET
The contingency plans for the Seattle Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals’ kick-off time have now officially been set.
In the event that the Seattle Mariners American League Divisional Playoffs Series vs. the Houston Astros goes to four games, the kickoff time will be moved from 1: 05 pm PT, to 2: 30 PM PT, according to reports.
Houston leads the series 1-0. They could sweep the five-game series by winning two of the next two games. This would negate the need for the time change.
Should the Mariners win one of the next two games, the first pitch for Game 4 of their series will be at 1: 07 pm PT.
OCT 10 GAME TIME MOVED?
According to Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, the Seattle Seahawks are in discussions to move the kickoff time of their Sunday matchup with the Arizona Cardinals, so as not to conflict with Game 4 of the Seattle Mariners MLB Divisional series against the Houston Astros.
Carroll said that the Seahawks are open to discussing all options if the times conflict.
OCT 9 WALKER HOUSE CALL
In relief of his injured teammate Rashaad Penny, Seahawks rookie running back Kenneth Walker has already made a major impact in the game thus far against the Saints, breaking free for a 69-yard touchdown run to give Seattle a brief 32-31 lead in the fourth quarter.
Unfortunately for the Seahawks, the Saints responded with a long Taysom Hill touchdown run of their own on the very next drive, and moved up 39-32 after the two point conversion.
OCT 09 PENNY OUT The Seattle Seahawks have lost a running back in a game against the New Orleans Saints. Rashaad Penny, running back, was injured in the game and had to be carted off.
The Seattle Seahawks could be without a running back today against the New Orleans Saints. Rashaad Penny, running back, could have suffered a lower leg injury during the game. Although he was able to make the sideline, he had to be escorted to the bench by his teammates to be checked by trainers.
Penny had eight carries for 54 yards before getting hurt and now gives way to at least in part the rookie Kenneth Walker III.

SEPTEMBER 12 SEAHAWKS SEND ROBINSON TO IR, SIGN TWO FROM PRACTICE SQUAD
Just hours ahead of their Monday Night Football season opener, the Seahawks have made multiple transactions, sending outside linebacker Alton Robinson to injured reserve, keeping him out for at least four games.
Robinson was injured in the preseason finale. To replace Robinson, Seattle raised Tanner Muse, a practice squad linebacker. The Seahawks have also removed deep snapper Tyler Ott from their roster due to a shoulder injury. They have promoted Carson Tinker to his place.
AUG 31 UPDATE
The Seahawks, along with the Dallas Cowboys, made a recent call to the New York Jets about disgruntled receiver Denzel Mims. How much do Seattle need more receiver help. This is a topic of debate.
AUGUST 30 CUTS BEGIN
9: 15 AM: According to Brady Henderson, the Seahawks have informed center Dakoda Shepley he’s being waived. The former CFL star joined the team as a waiver pickup last August after being released by the 49ers and appeared in all three preseason games seeing snaps behind Austin Blythe and Kyle Fuller.
10: 20 AM: Despite a strong preseason showing, per Doug Kyed of PFF and confirmed through a team source, the Seahawks will release undrafted rookie safety Scott Nelson. The former Wisconsin standout produced six tackles and allowed only one catch for seven yards on 73 defensive snaps in exhibition play and could be a priority candidate to re-sign on practice squad as insurance at the safety position.
10: 45 AM: According to Henderson, due to a crowded group ahead of him, the Seahawks have informed tight end Tyler Mabry of his release. Former Washington receiver Aaron Fuller was also released by the team.
10: 47 AM: After finishing third on the team among receivers in receptions and receiving yards a year ago, the Seahawks are officially moving on from veteran wideout Freddie Swain. The 2020 sixth-round pick played his way out of a roster spot this month, struggling with drops during the preseason and falling down the depth chart during training camp behind the likes of rookie Dareke Young and Penny Hart.
11: 01 AM: Per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Seahawks have released linebacker Tanner Muse. The former safety from Clemson made four tackles on special teams last season.
11: 24 AM: Moving on from a former top pick, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports the Seahawks have informed safety Marquise Blair of his release. After two seasons of injury-shortened season, the fourth-year defensive back started training camp as a nickel cornerback. He then switched to safety full-time and struggled with tackle throughout the preseason. He was not able to make the depth chart due to Josh Jones’s passing.
8: 48 AM: With Trey Lance set to take over under center, the 49ers have a potentially expensive decision awaiting them on veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. If the team releases him before Tuesday’s deadline, they would save $25.5 million in cap space. According to Jordan Schultz, the general manager John Lynch doesn’t like Garoppolo signing with the Seahawks. They play in Week 2 against their division rivals and could be interested in upgrading the position if he is available. This will be a situation worth monitoring over the next 24 hours.
2: 22 PM: Garoppolo won’t be coming to Seattle. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter the veteran quarterback has agreed to a one-year restructured contract to stay in San Francisco. It includes a no trade clause that would certainly eliminate the possibility of Garoppolo being traded to a rival division.
Garoppolo and the Niners have a new deal agreed that is worth $6.5 million in fully guaranteed base salary, a reduction of about $19 million from his previous salary.
11: 05 AM: In the first announced cut, Pro Football Network’s Aaron Wilson reported Seattle has waived undrafted rookie Cade Brewer for the second time in less than two weeks. The former Texas standout signed with the Seahawks after the draft and caught three passes for 17 yards in three exhibition games.
11: 29 AM: Per Brady Henderson of ESPN, the Seahawks have waived cornerback Jameson Houston. Originally signed on August 10, he appeared in all three preseason games, registering five tackles.
1: 16 PM: Along with confirming Houston and Brewer had been cut, the Seahawks announced cornerback Tre Brown (knee) has been transferred to the reserve/PUP list, which means he will miss at least the first four regular season games. The second-year defender missed all of training camp and continues to recover from a patellar tendon injury suffered in Week 11 last season.
In addition, Seattle waived linebacker Aaron Donkor and running back Ronnie Rivers, bringing the roster to 76 players. Donkor, who joined the team through the International Player Pathway Program in 2021, appeared in one preseason game before being sidelined by a hamstring injury, while Rivers played in the final preseason game after being signed last week.
