Jordan Babineaux Will Re-Sign With The Seahawks After Being Released Over The Weekend

The Seattle Seahawks surprisingly released safety Jordan Babineaux when paring the roster down to the 53-man limit, but several sources are reporting that Babineaux - like Julius Jones before him - will be sticking with the Seahawks.

The NFL Network's Jason La Canfora later corroborated this report.

Babineaux started all 16 games for the Seahawks last season, registering 75 tackles, two interceptions and a sack.


Seahawks' Julius Jones Takes Paycut, Avoids Being Released

Yesterday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Julius Jones would be a late casualty of roster cuts, with a move coming as soon as today. In the wake of that report, Jones restructured his contract and took a pay cut, saving his job with the Seahawks.

Schefter confirmed today that Jones will indeed be on the final 53-man roster because of his willingness to take less money.

It's clear the Seahawks are looking to get money off the books after releasing T.J. Houshmandzadeh and eating more than $6 million because of it. Luckily for Jones, he's still employed, albeit at a much lower salary.


Seahawks Release Mansfield Wrotto, Kevin Ellison And Steve Vallos

In addition to the waiver additions we covered earlier, the Seahawks announced Mansfield Wrotto, Kevin Ellison and Steve Vallos were all released this morning, presumably to make room for Tracy Andrews and the players claimed off waivers throughout the day.

Clayton: Houshmandzadeh Move Likely Means Julius Jones Will Be Cut

Seahawks running back Julius Jones may be cut in order to save money after the Seahawks trade or release receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh. On the 710 ESPN's Kevin Calabro Show, John Clayton reported that the Seahawks will need to free up money somehow, and Jones is a likely to be cut because of it.

So the Seahawks roster purge continues as we head towards Saturday's 53-man roster deadline. At this point, it feels like none of the Seahawks are safe from the Carrol and Schneider rampage.

NFL Roster Cuts: Seahawks Make Roster Moves, Now At 75 Players

The Seahawks are finished with their first round of cuts, making five roster moves to get down to the required 75 player limit.

Greg Johns has the scoop.

Guard Gregg Peat, wide receiver Kole Heckendorf and kicker Clint Stitser have been cut, along with former CFL defensive end Ricky Foley.

The first round of roster moves is minor, with players that had no chance of making the final roster being waived in the preliminary cuts. The Seahawks will continue to trim the roster before Saturday’s final roster deadline.
