Having been waived from the practice squad last week, tight end Sean McGrath was resigned Saturday. To make room, the Hawks waived former Washington Husky receiver Jermaine Kearse. The rookie McGrath had a strong preseason but was waived after they signed former Cleveland tight end Evan Moore, who had been released by Cleveland. Last week they added Gabe Miller as a tight end. The former Oregon State Beaver had been a linebacker with the Chiefs.


Here’s the team’s release:



Renton, Wash. - The Seattle Seahawks have signed tight end Sean McGrath to their practice squad, the team announced today.


McGrath was with the team during training camp and the preseason, playing in all four games catching five passes for 64 yards. McGrath originally signed with Seattle as an undrafted rookie free agent on April 28, 2012, and was released from the practice squad on September 3.


To make room for McGrath, WR Jermaine Kearse was released from the practice squad.


The Seahawks also announced that linebacker Matt McCoy was released from injured reserve with an injury settlement.

    I liked McGrath, seems he caught everything in pre-season… But I liked Kearse too…

  2. Dukeshire says:

    Im glad McGrath’s back, too. He seemed to be a capable blocker as well has having nice hands. He’s worth seeing how he develops.

  3. Skavage says:

    While I always rooted for Kearse while he was at UW, I thought he tended to have lapses in concentration and would crop some balls that he shouldn’t. I wasn’t terribly impressed with his time with the Hawks. Although I am a bit surprised he was released over Miller. But then I haven;t seen Miller at all so hard to really judge.

    McGrath now he was a guy that surprised me all preseason. Seemed to develop and progress every week. So I’m happy to see him back.

    In about 24 hrs, we will know if the hawks are looking legit. Man, can’t wait.

  5. GeorgiaHawk says:

    LSU proving once again,( that aside from USC) that the SEC is man against boys when it comes to playing the pac 12.

  6. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Glad to see that Sean McGrath is back in the mix. Glad to see curse let go. Hands of stone Curse.

    Georgia, I don’t remember Auburn blowing Oregon off the field in the Championship Game 2 years ago! The SEC is definitely better top to bottom. More talent in there region and college football is bigger there with the relative lack of pro teams in the region. UW is not ready to play with the big boys this year. Especially not early in the year and on the road. They are young and have a beat up o-line. Injuries and young at RB. Worst scenario you could imagine facing a team like LSU. Hopefully, they will be ready to compete with some of the big boys next year after they have grown up some. They were 0-12 just 4 years ago remember.

  8. GeorgiaHawk says:

    bbnate420- I would love to make an argument down here for the pac 12, however aside from USC in the past I can’t.
    Oregon looked like high school players against Auburn. How embarrassing.

  9. Skavage says:

    The night before the opener and we’re talking college? Blasphemy! :)

  10. Soggybuc says:

    That LSU D line made the Huskies look bad! a lesser QB than Price would have been mince meat as they were in the backfield almost every play.

  11. Dukeshire says:

    Yes, LSU dominated the LOS on both sides of the ball.

  12. FairbanksDoug says:

    We just took control of this restaurant/bar on July 1st and we haven’t established the website yet, but it is in the works. Previous name was “Roundup Steakhouse”, the same that was on google.

    Soggybuc; love that idea of themed menu items for each Sunday based on the Hawks victims.

    I am overly optimistic about the Hawks chances each year, this year is no exception.
    I don’t know if Wilson is the best QB at the beginning of season, but I believe he would be the best choice at the end. I feel Wilson has a higher ceiling and if he keeps learning as fast as he does he will be very very good at the end of season. I love Flynn’s potential and the skillset he brings to the field, I just feel Wilson’s developed skills at end of season are what could carry us through the playoffs .

  13. bbnate420 says:

    Auburn only beat Oregon 22-19 in OT. How the f&^k is that making them look like high school players??? Too many tonight me thinks. :-)

  14. Fairbanks,
    You might want to advertise in the Eielson AFB newspaper. Some kind of Seahawk special might bring some displaced fans in.

  15. FairbanksDoug says:

    We are gonna do a promo with local Bud Light distributor involving round trip tickets to Seattle for the last game of the season to include hotel, and game tickets. We are trying to get the word out to both posts as there are many of displaced fans on both of them.

    I’m so excited about today’s game I cant sleep! No that’s not true I’m just drunk.

  17. GeorgiaHawk says:

    bbnate420- Oregon gets more out of their players than any Pac 10 team. Great coaching!

    And they did play a good game,( aside from running the ball against Auburn), however when I said they looked like high school players compared to Auburn I was just comparing the size of the players.

    If the Seahawks can be anything close to dominating the line of scrimmage this year,( like LSU did last night ) We will be 10-6 or better,imo.

  18. GeorgiaHawk says:

    I’m so exited about the game today that I can’t drink! That’s not true ethier.

  19. Dukeshire says:

    Chip Kelly is a great coach, no question. But they also recruit like a mother. They may recruit as well as any school west of the Rockies, not named USC.

  20. Dukeshire says:

    Happy new year, everyone! Yeah!!!

  21. Sarcasticus says:

    gasp! Dave, say it ain’t so! “resigned”

  22. Sarcasticus says:

    “The night before the opener and we’re talking college? Blasphemy!”

    That’s when they play them.

    I was really hoping for U-dub to play better, but we really do play a rough brand of football in these here parts.

    Today has finally come!!!
    On the downside i woke up with a big cold sore, i only get those when i’m super sressed, WTF! It’s not the end of the world but the timing couldn’t be worse. I’m sure it’ll go away with a good win today.
    This morning i’ll have to buy some boddingtons like Duke suggested, i just can’t drink as much with a sore. Downer.
    Help i can’t wait 7 more hours.

  24. Dukeshire says:

    montanta – You’ll enjoy them. So happy right now…! lol

  25. montanamike2 says:

    That’s one thing i love about being in the states especially Montana,
    i can zip over to the gas station last minute to buy beer. Good beer and it’s inexpensive too. When i grew up in Canada we had to get our beer a couple days in advance and it wasn’t cheap.

  26. Sarcasticus says:

    Can’t even purchase beer here on a Sunday. Planning is important for gameday!
