Seahawks waive injured tight end Anthony McCoy
By Brady Henderson
RENTON – The Seahawks have waived tight end Anthony McCoy with an injured designation and signed tackle Jake Bscherer.
The team made the announcements before Tuesday’s organized team activity.
McCoy, Seattle’s backup tight end, is expected to miss at least six months after having surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon, an injury he sustained last week. McCoy, a sixth-round pick in 2010 out of USC, was entering the final year of his rookie contract.
Bscherer took part in the Seahawks’ rookie minicamp earlier this month on a tryout basis. He went undrafted out of Minnesota-Duluth, where he spent his senior season after transferring from Wisconsin.
