Seahawks reach 53-man roster: WR Amara Darboh, QB Alex McGough waived
The Seahawks have released their list of all roster moves and trades made ahead of Saturday’s 1 p.m. deadline to get down to 53 players.
Wide receiver Amara Darboh, a 2017 third-round pick, and quarterback Alex McGough, this year’s seventh-round pick, were among those waived.
Two of the more notable names to make the team are wide receiver David Moore and defensive tackle Poona Ford.
A bit surprising was the Injured Reserve list. The inclusion of offensive tackle Jamarco Jones, who suffered a serious ankle sprain earlier this preseason, was expected. But also placed on IR was cornerback Byron Maxwell, linebacker Erik Walden and quarterback Austin Davis. Tight end Ed Dickson was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list.
