Seattle Seahawks Cut Roster Down to 75 Players

The Seattle Seahawks announced roster cuts today to bring the team down to 75 players. NFL teams are required to cut the roster down by Monday, Aug. 27 at 4 p.m. EST.

The biggest name of the group was wide receiver Terrell Owens, who announced on his Twitter earlier this morning that he did not make the squad. The 38-year-old signed with the Seahawks in hopes of beginning a comeback into the NFL. Owens last played in the league in 2010.

The following players were also waived:

LB Jameson Konz
DE Pep Levingston
DB Roy Lewis
TE Cameron Morrah
WR Phil Bates
T Edawn Coughman, Alex Barron
CB Donny Lisowski, Ron Parker
RB Tyrell Sutton
NG Deuce Lutui

The theme to the cuts is that the youngsters played their way into contracts, which allowed veterans like Lutui and Barron to be expendable.
