Pete Carroll confirmed that the Seattle Seahawks have signed tight end Kellen Davis. In order to bring Davis on the roster, the Seahawks released linebacker Allen Bradford.

Davis will wear No. 87.

The Seahawks also brought back defensive end Ty Powell and offensive lineman Ryan Seymour to the practice squad, and let go of offensive lineman Jared Smith and defensive tackle Michael Brooks.

Carroll said that rookie tight end Luke Willson got banged up against Carolina, but is expected to practice today. So Davis provides some depth at tight end.

“It just made us aware that we’ve got to have another guy,” Carroll said. “So he (Willson) should be okay, but we just wanted to get some insurance there.”

Carroll said that Brandon Browner will run again today, and try to practice on Thursday after missing last week with a hamstring injury. Carroll is hopeful that Browner can play on Sunday.

“It looks like he’s got real chance to make it back,” Carroll said. “So we’ll see. We’re going to try and do it right, and not push it too soon. Tomorrow is going to be a big day for us to understand more, and then we’ll go all the way until Friday to see how he responds to Thursday.”

San Francisco head coach Jim Harbaugh discussed his team’s reasoning for signing former Seahawks fourth round draft pick Chris Harper off of Seattle’s practice squad to his team’s active roster.

“We liked him coming out, as did obviously other people,” Harbaugh said. “He’s a smart kid. He works very hard. He’s a strong catcher. We have high hopes for him.”

And San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick chalked up his team’s struggles against the Seahawks last December to an overall poor performance.

“I think we just had a bad game,” Kaepernick said. “We didn’t perform in any phase of that game.”

Kaepernick also said the crowd noise did not play a role in how his team performed on offense

“I think our efficiency in the huddle was more of a factor in the crowd,” he said.

    Okay, whatever Dude. You asked for it now!

  2. seahawk44 says:

    Very shocked at the release of Bradford. He played his way onto this roster and earned high praise for his hard hitting. Lotulelei seems a more logical roster cut.

  3. sluggo42 says:

    Yaa, talk about a weak attempt at reverse psychology…

    I hope y’all brushed up on lip reading…

  4. So the Panicked, Where am I, what’s happening look Capernick had last year was all a ruse. WOW. World Record Loud Sunday to Remind him. Leave No Doubt 24/7 Boys

  5. Hey Chuck –

    regarding Scooter’s Sports Bar for the Seahawks game in LV there is a restaurant section where minors are welcome. There are TV Screens throughout the facility – you could easily go back and forth throughout the game while your son watches from his table.

    Looks as though the Hawks will continue the game of musical chairs they started last year with the practice squad. Don’t panic. Allen Bradford will be added to the practice squad next week.

  7. The crowd noise record thing is a distraction. Just bring it like normal and the 12th man will do his job. Nuthin but media hype. Let’s play football!

  8. freedom_X says:

    Lotulelei might be doing better on special teams. And it’s not just about the plays made, but also the mistakes made. Lotulelei might make fewer mistakes than Bradford, given his greater experience at the position.

    At a position like LB, it’s often better to have a guy with average playmaking who doesn’t make mistakes vs. a boom or bust type that either makes a good play or who messes up and leaves a hole in the defense, to illustrate the extreme example. A boom or bust guy really only makes sense if they’re a top pass-rusher.

  9. kind of bummed about Bradford too – he was a good story, and I liked the way he looked in pre-season. physical player. maybe he’ll be back on the PS as others have said.

    sure is nice to have actual football to talk about again. another game tomorrow night.

  10. freedom_X says:

    Well, in fairness to Kaepernick – what is he going to say to a question like that? It’s not like the crowd will quiet down if he admits it was a factor last year. We’ll see what happens if we can hit world record… that should be something he’s never experienced.

  11. Surprised it wasn’t Lotuleilei as well if it had to be a LB to go.

  12. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Surprised it was Bradford. But not surprised it wasn’t Lotuleilei.

    I think Lotuleilei becomes a good player on this team.

  13. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Lotuleilei has a knack. Like bringing a healthy Lofa back!

  14. Seattle appears to be rotating guys on their PS. Jared Smith and the rest may return to it in a week or two. Bradford as well–if he clears waivers, he’s a good candidate for the occasional PS if he has any eligibility left.

    Here’s hoping.

  15. DreadHawks says:

    Didnt the 9ers have to call 4 timeouts and have 2 delay of game penalties AT HOME last sunday???? Ya, let’s see how the noise is not a factor on Sunday.If they can’t get their plays off in a friendly environment……..Bring it 12!!!

  16. Michael Robinson will be on NFL Total Access at 5pm tonight.

  17. GeorgiaHawk says:

    M Rob is a beast!

    Hopefully he will catch on with a team soon.

  18. edstang45 says:

    What else did ya expect Kaperstink to say. He is a stud and we better be ready for him….hate him as much as I hated Elway, only this time were much much better baby…go Hawks

  19. edstang45 says:

    Thanks Georgiahawk nice link

  20. This game is the only way the Hawks can achieve their goal, is go to New Jersey. We have to go threw The 49’ERS. Go Hawks!!!!

    eahawk44 I had the exact same thought. I guess we will have to trust the PC and JS on this one.
