Seahawks' New TE Evan Moore 'Feels Like A Rookie' At First Seattle Practice

The Seattle Seahawks' newest acquisition, tight end Evan Moore, was at practice for the first time at the VMAC on Monday, and it was the end of a hectic few days for the fifth-year veteran. Moore was waived by the Cleveland Browns on Friday, but was signed by the Seahawks on Saturday before flying to Seattle on Sunday.

Moore talked with Seahawks.com about the process of starting out with a new team:

"Considering these guys all just went through camp together, I’m kind of the new guy," he said. "You almost feel like a rookie. You walk in the building and everybody’s looking at you like, ‘Who’s this guy?’

"There is a learning curve, but fortunately there’s a lot of translation between what we did in Cleveland and what we’re doing here – both in terminology and schematically, and X’s and O’s, and all that. I’m fortunate that’s the case."

The 27-year-old out of Stanford was added by the Seahawks after they waived tight end Kellen Winslow. Moore caught 34 passes for 324 yards and four touchdowns in 2011.

Seahawks Waive TE Kellen Winslow, According To Report

The Seattle Seahawks waived TE Kellen Winslow on Saturday.

His departure means Seattle currently has two tight ends on the roster ahead of the season-opener against the Arizona Cardinals. The news comes is a bit of a surprise, as the Seahawks trimmed their roster down to the NFL-mandated 53 players yesterday. ESPN's Adam Schefter broke the news:

Winslow came to the Seahawks during the offseason from the Tampa Bay Bucanneers in exchange for a conditional draft pick. The physically gifted tight end has a reputation for being a problem in the locker room.

His on-field play has not been an issue. He caught 75 passes for 763 yards in 2011 and is one of the more productive pass-catching tight ends in the NFL.

NFL Cuts: Seahawks Part Ways With 2011 Fourth Round Pick Kris Durham

The Seattle Seahawks begin their flurry of final roster cuts by announcing the release of wide receiver Kris Durham, according to Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times.

Durham, a 2011 fourth-round draft pick out of Georgia, spent most of his rookie year on injured reserve with a shoulder injury and only had three receptions on the season. O'Neil also reported that it "appears" Durham is still banged up as well and could miss up to two or three weeks.

Durham has always had durability issues but he still remains an interesting deep threat option with his 6'6" frame and above-average straight-line speed. Yet without much college production despite playing across from A.J. Green, it's highly questionable if any other teams will actually be interested in claiming him off the waivers.

Durham joins defensive lineman E.J. Wilson as the second fourth-round pick to be cut by Pete Carroll in his first two seasons as coach.
