Sunday evening, the roster churn pauses “FOR NOW”?

Published on September 5, 2010 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

So what can we expect between now and when the team takes the practice field on Monday afternoon at 2:45 p.m.?

• Pat Ruel to be named offensive-line coach. The move was reported by Chris Mortenson of ESPN. Ruel served as Pete Carroll’s offensive line coach the previous five seasons at USC. Many expected — and some Los Angeles reporters even stated — he would be coming with Carroll to Seattle. And sure enough, he did. It just took an extra eight months or so. Ruel has coached at eight different colleges — including Washington State for four seasons beginning in 1978 — and the Seahawks would be his fifth NFL franchise.

• Fullback Owen Schmitt, defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson and safety Jordan Babineaux have all been informed they will be cut. Those moves were not officially announced on Sunday. It’s likely the team is waiting until replacements pass a physical and are signed to contracts. Michael Robinson, running back and special-teams mainstay in San Francisco, and Junior Siavii, a defensive tackle from Dallas, are expected to sign with Seattle. The question is what safety Seattle will be brining in to replace Babineaux. Right now, Seattle has three safeties on the roster, two of whom are rookies. Nate Ness — claimed off waivers from Miami — is a defensive back, but he hasn’t played in an NFL game, either.

• Running back Julius Jones will be released, according to a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN. This one could not be independently confirmed, but there are many around the league who expect him to be cut Monday. His base salary of $2.45 million in 2010 is believed to become guaranteed if he’s on the roster after Monday.

The question is what running back Seattle will bring in to replace Jones. Robinson plays running back, but his value is special-teams and he’s taking Schmitt’s spot. Seattle tried to claim Kregg Lumpkin after the Packers waived him, according to ESPN.com’s Mike Sando, but the Buccaneers waiver claim prevailed because they had a worse record last season.
