Seahawks make first round of cuts

The Seahawks announced their first round of roster cuts Monday, a day before the deadline to reduce their roster to 75 players.

The Seahawks released CB Terrell Thomas and T Wade Smith, and because those two are vested veterans, they are not subject to waivers and become free agents immediately.

The Seahawks also waived T Cory Brandon, RB Demitrius Bronson, S Mike Dobson, DE Jackson Jeffcoat, WR Kevin Smith and CB Thomas “Trey” Wolfe. Those players are subject to waivers.

Seattle will have to make seven more moves to get its roster down to 75, though some of those could come in the form of placing players on injured reserve.
