The Seattle Seahawks made a minor roster move today, releasing veteran receiver Antonio Bryant and replacing him on the 90-man roster by bringing back kicker Carson Wiggs.
Bryant had missed the last two practices with an unknown injury. The veteran receiver’s reps had been limited during the first week of training camp. One of Bryant’s few highlights was a nice reception on a deep ball from Matt Flynn while working with the second unit a few days ago during team drills. But Bryant was a long shot to make the roster with the youth he faced at the position.
Seattle now has 13 receivers on the roster.
Kicker Steven Hauschka did not kick during field goal period on Saturday, so it’s possible Seattle brought back Wiggs to help Hauschka rest his legs.
