The Seahawks made a few roster moves today, adding defensive tackle Michael Brooks, who they claimed after Detroit waived him last week, and signing receiver Greg Herd, an undrafted rookie out of Eastern Washington University who first signed with Dallas as an undrafted free agent in April.
Herd, who is from Tacoma, is listed at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds, and ran a 4.53 40-yard dash at his pro day. He caught 133 passes in his final two seasons at Eastern for 1,974 yards and 14 touchdowns. Below is a highlight video that includes some pretty impressive catches, including a nice touchdown catch against Washington.
Brooks, who is listed at 6-3, 294, played at Eastern Carolina, was a second-team All-Conference USA selection as a senior.
Seattle waived receiver Matt Austin and guard Jordan Roussos, who were both signed earlier as undrafted rookies.
Also, tight end Anthony McCoy cleared waivers, meaning he now reverts to Seattle’s injured reserve list. The Seahawks waived/injured McCoy Tuesday, which is the necessary procedure in the offseason to get a player onto injured reserve. McCoy tore his Achilles last week during organized team activities.
