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.

Seahawks activate DE Jordan from PUP list | Updates from Saturday

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.

The team confirmed defensive Dion Jordan has been activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list, a move first reported by the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Here are all players waived by the Seahawks Saturday:

LB D.J. Alexander, CB Elijah Battle, T Isaiah Battle, G Willie Beavers, CB Jeremy Boykins, WR Marvin Bracy, TE Kyle Carter, WR Amara Darboh, LB Josh Forrest, WR Cyril Grayson, C Marcus Henry, RB Gerald Holmes, DT joey Ivie, FS Lorenzo Jerome, CB Akeem King, RB Daniel Marx, QB Alex McGough, G Skyler Phillips, LB Jacob Pugh, CB Trovon Reed, WR Keenan Reynolds, G Jordan Roos, WR Caleb Scott, TE Tyrone Swoopes, RB Justin Stockton, WR Damore’ea Stringfellow, WR Malik Turner, CB Mike Tyson, TE Clayton Wilson.

DE Ricky Ali’ifua, LB Emmanuel Beal, and S T.J. Mutcherson were all waived/injured. The team also terminated the contract of safety Maurice Alexander.

Trade updates

Seattle confirmed trades for tight end Darrell Daniels and safety Shalom Luani. The Seahawks traded wide receiver Marcus Johnson (originally acquired in Seattle’s trade of Michael Bennett to Philadelphia) to the Colts in exchange for Daniels, who played in college at Washington. The team gave a 2019 seventh-round pick to Oakland for Luani.
