Seattle Seahawks Elevate WR Laquon Treadwell to Active Roster - NFL Tracker

Follow along with as we keep you up to date with all firings, hirings, and breaking news in the NFL.


Looking for additional wide receiver depth, the Seattle Seahawks have elevated former Jaguars and Vikings pass catcher Laquon Treadwell to the active roster. 

Last season in Jacksonville, Treadwell has 33 catches on 51 targets for 434 yards and a touchdown in 12 games, with seven starts. 

NOV 20 DK FINED Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf has been fined $29,785 by the NFL for "unsportsmanlike conduct'' penalty in last week's loss to the Bucs in Germany.

Metcalf was flagged in that game for "arguing with an official'' (if you could call it that) over an uncalled defensive pass interference penalty in the end zone.

Metcalf finished with a team high 71 receiving yards on six catches. ... and now during the team's bye has to cough up almost $30,000 for a finger-point.

NOV 9 'NEVER MORE WRONG' The At least Curt Menefee is admitting it.

“I’m not afraid to say I don’t think I’ve ever been more wrong about a team coming out of training camp than I was this Seahawks team,” Menefee told Seattle Sports’ Brock and Salk on Tuesday.

The Seahawks are 6-3 and Menefee, host of "FOX NFL Sunday'' and the Seahawks preseason TV play-by-play announcer, said he thought they might be lucky to win six games total.

Menefee specifically mentioned coach Pete Carroll, saying "He was excited about this team'' at camp and that maybe we all should have picked up on that. And he mentioned Geno Smith, a surprise MVP candidate.

“I’m happy for him, I genuinely am because I think it’s a great comeback story,” Menefee said of the QB.


The Seattle Seahawks have waived veteran cornerback Sidney Jones, after the conclusion of Tuesday's NFL Trade Deadline. 

The Seahawks had attempted to move Jones before the deadline, but were unable to do so. 

In two seasons with the Seahawks, Jones played in 19 games, starting 11, with 66 tackles, and 10 pass deflections. 


The Seattle Seahawks announced Tuesday that they have released running back Godwin Igwebuike and linebacker Christian Jones from the practice squad.

Igwebuike emerged as an underrated depth piece at running back for the Detroit Lions. Last season, he rushed 18 times for 118 yards and a touchdown while catching seven passes for 60 yards.

Jones appeared in three games this season after three elevations from the practice squad.


The Carolina Panthers have found a trade partner for star running back, Christian McCaffrey - the San Francisco 49ers.

According to multiple reports, the Panthers will be sending McCaffrey to the Seahawks' NFC West rivals in exchange for multiple second-day picks.

The Rams and Bills were also said to be in the running for McCaffrey

Just last week against the Rams, McCaffrey had 158 yards from scrimmage in 20 total touches. And for the season, the Stanford product has 670 yards from scrimmage on 118 touches, with three touchdowns, in an otherwise anemic offense. 

OCT 19 PRACTICE SQUAD MOVES The Seahawks made two practice squad moves on Wednesday. Seattle signed former WSU standout WR Easop Winston to their practice squad and released Kevin Kassis to make room for Winston.

Winston caught 137 balls for 1,624 yards and 19 touchdowns for the Cougars over 26 games and spent time with the Rams and Saints before arriving in Seattle.

OCT 18 SEATTLE SIGNING The Seahawks on Tuesday had in for a visit veteran defensive tackle Vernon Butler and provided workouts to Notre Dame QB Jack Coan, receivers Dai'Jean Dixon, Dazz Newsome and Easop Winston (of Washington State) and have decided to sign Winston to the practice squad.


The Arizona Cardinals have acquired wide receiver Robbie Anderson from the Carolina Panthers via trade.

Anderson, who played in Los Angeles against the Rams on Sunday, was kicked out of the game by his own head coach, Steve Wilks.

"I was honestly confused," Anderson said after the game. "I wanted to be in the game. I've never had somebody yell to get out of the game. So I was honestly confused and upset by that. I should be. I don't see nobody that is a true competitor, that knows the value they bring and has true passion for the game, that will be OK with being told not to do something or being taken out of something when they didn't do nothing wrong."


The contingency plans for the Seattle Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals' kick-off time have now officially been set. 

In the event that the Seattle Mariners American League Divisional Playoffs Series vs. the Houston Astros goes to four games, the kickoff time will be moved from 1:05 pm PT, to 2:30 PM PT, according to reports. 

Houston currently leads the series 1-0 and could sweep the five-game series by winning the next two games, negating the necessity of the time change. 

Should the Mariners win one of the next two games, the first pitch for Game 4 of their series will be at 1:07 pm PT. 


According to Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, the Seattle Seahawks are in discussions to move the kickoff time of their Sunday matchup with the Arizona Cardinals, so as not to conflict with Game 4 of the Seattle Mariners MLB Divisional series against the Houston Astros. 

Carroll says Seahawks are discussing all options, should the times' conflict with one another. 


In relief of his injured teammate Rashaad Penny, Seahawks rookie running back Kenneth Walker has already made a major impact in the game thus far against the Saints, breaking free for a 69-yard touchdown run to give Seattle a brief 32-31 lead in the fourth quarter.

Unfortunately for the Seahawks, the Saints responded with a long Taysom Hill touchdown run of their own on the very next drive, and moved up 39-32 after the two point conversion.

Penny had eight carries for 54 yards before getting hurt and now gives way to at least in part the rookie Kenneth Walker III.


The Seattle Seahawks are set to face Andy Dalton and the New Orleans Saints this weekend after starter Jameis Winston was ruled out for the second straight week with a back and hip injury.

Dalton made his Saints debut last week in London against the Minnesota Vikings. Dalton completed over 70 percent of his passes and threw for 236 yards and a touchdown in a 28-25 loss.

The Saints and Seahawks play at 10 a.m. in New Orleans on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Seahawks added an old pal to the practice squad, signing center Joey Hunt, and cut DB Quandre Mosely from the practice squad.


The Seattle Seahawks have placed running back Travis Homer on IR, following a rib injury he sustained on Sunday against the Falcons. 

To replace Homer, the Seahawks added cornerback Xavier Crawford to the 53-man roster. 

The Seahawks also signed running back Godwin Igwebuike and fullback Cullen Gillaspia to the practice squad.


Following their 27-7 blowout loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks have sent cornerback Xavier Crawford back to the practice squad. 

Crawford was elevated to the active roster for the matchup with the 49ers.


Per Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, rookie running back Kenneth Walker III, who missed the team's season-opening win over the Broncos on Monday Night Football this week, will make his NFL debut next Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. 

“(Walker) is going to be out there this week,” Carroll told 710 ESPN in Seattle.

Before being selected in the second round by Seattle, Walker was a Heisman finalist last season with the Michigan State Spartans, rushing for 1,636 yards on the year.


Just hours ahead of their Monday Night Football season opener, the Seahawks have made multiple transactions, sending outside linebacker Alton Robinson to injured reserve, keeping him out for at least four games. 

Robinson injured his knee in the preseason finale. To replace Robinson, Seattle elevated practice squad linebacker Tanner Muse.

The Seahawks have also ruled out deep snapper Tyler Ott with a shoulder injury, elevating Carson Tinker to take his place.

How much does Seattle need more receiver help? That's a subject for debate.

How much does Seattle want to give up for Mims? Our guys at have the details on what the Cowboys - and the Seahawks - said "no'' to.


9:15 AM: According to Brady Henderson, the Seahawks have informed center Dakoda Shepley he's being waived. The former CFL star joined the team as a waiver pickup last August after being released by the 49ers and appeared in all three preseason games seeing snaps behind Austin Blythe and Kyle Fuller.

10:20 AM: Despite a strong preseason showing, per Doug Kyed of PFF and confirmed through a team source, the Seahawks will release undrafted rookie safety Scott Nelson. The former Wisconsin standout produced six tackles and allowed only one catch for seven yards on 73 defensive snaps in exhibition play and could be a priority candidate to re-sign on practice squad as insurance at the safety position.

10:45 AM: According to Henderson, due to a crowded group ahead of him, the Seahawks have informed tight end Tyler Mabry of his release. The team also cut ties with former Washington receiver Aaron Fuller.

10:47 AM: After finishing third on the team among receivers in receptions and receiving yards a year ago, the Seahawks are officially moving on from veteran wideout Freddie Swain. The 2020 sixth-round pick played his way out of a roster spot this month, struggling with drops during the preseason and falling down the depth chart during training camp behind the likes of rookie Dareke Young and Penny Hart.

11:01 AM: Per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Seahawks have released linebacker Tanner Muse. The ex-Clemson safety appeared in six games last season, producing four tackles on special teams.

11:24 AM: Moving on from a former top pick, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Seahawks have informed safety Marquise Blair of his release. Coming off of two injury-shortened seasons, the fourth-year defender started training camp working at nickel cornerback before transitioning back to safety full-time and struggled with tackling throughout the preseason. Passed on the depth chart by Josh Jones, he became expendable in a crowded position group also featuring Jamal Adams, Quandre Diggs, and Ryan Neal.

August 29

8:48 AM: With Trey Lance set to take over under center, the 49ers have a potentially expensive decision awaiting them on veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. If the team releases him before Tuesday's deadline, they would save $25.5 million in cap space. But according to insider Jordan Schultz, general manager John Lynch isn't keen on the idea of Garoppolo ending up with the Seahawks, who play their division rivals in Week 2 and could have interest in upgrading at the position if he becomes available to sign. This will be a situation worth monitoring over the next 24 hours.

2:22 PM: Garoppolo won't be coming to Seattle. Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the veteran quarterback agreed to a restructured one-year contract to stay in San Francisco that includes a no-trade clause, which surely would eliminate the possibility of being dealt to a division rival.

Garoppolo and the Niners have a new deal agreed that is worth $6.5 million in fully guaranteed base salary, a reduction of about $19 million from his previous salary.

August 28

11:05 AM: In the first announced cut, Pro Football Network's Aaron Wilson reported Seattle has waived undrafted rookie Cade Brewer for the second time in less than two weeks. The former Texas standout signed with the Seahawks after the draft and caught three passes for 17 yards in three exhibition games.

11:29 AM: Per Brady Henderson of ESPN, the Seahawks have waived cornerback Jameson Houston. Originally signed on August 10, he appeared in all three preseason games, registering five tackles.

1:16 PM: Along with confirming Houston and Brewer had been cut, the Seahawks announced cornerback Tre Brown (knee) has been transferred to the reserve/PUP list, which means he will miss at least the first four regular season games. The second-year defender missed all of training camp and continues to recover from a patellar tendon injury suffered in Week 11 last season.

In addition, Seattle waived linebacker Aaron Donkor and running back Ronnie Rivers, bringing the roster to 76 players. Donkor, who joined the team through the International Player Pathway Program in 2021, appeared in one preseason game before being sidelined by a hamstring injury, while Rivers played in the final preseason game after being signed last week.
