Hauschka in, Reed out among Hawks roster moves

Published on September 5, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

The Seattle Seahawks announced several roster moves this afternoon. Perhaps the most noticeable is they claimed Denver Broncos reserve kicker Steve Hauschka. In order to make room for him, Seattle waived former Pittsburgh and San Francisco kicker Jeff Reed.

Reed seem to have a roster spot sewed up after Seattle released Brandon Coutu a few weeks ago, but as personnel people always say, you’re not just competing against the 80 people on your own roster, but the entire rosters of the 31 other teams as well.

In this case, we got a first-hand look at Hauschka, who made a 51-yard, game winning field goal with no time left against the Seahawks at Denver two weeks ago to clinch that game, 23-20.

This addition looks like a move to get younger at the position more than anything. A 10-year veteran, Reed is 32, while Hauschka, entering his fourth season out of North Carolina State, is 26.

Along with the 51-yard field goal, Hauschka made all four extra points during exhibition play, and three of his five kickoffs went for touchbacks. However, he did kickoff on Doug Baldwin’s 105-yard return for a touchdown.

The Seahawks also waived linebacker David Vobora and defensive tackles Junior Siavii, and this year’s seventh-round draft pick, Pep Levingston.

Seattle replaced those three on the roster with offensive tackle Jarriel King of South Carolina (waived by Giants), and defensive tackles Landon Cohen out of Ohio (waived by the Patriots) and LSU’s Al Woods (waived by the Bucs.

The Seahawks also signed DE Maurice Fountain, DE Jameson Konz, WR Ricardo Lockette, G Brent Osborne, S Josh Pinkard and WR Owen Spencer to the practice squad, so they can add two more players. Teams can have up to eight players on the practice squad.

Levingston could be a practice squad addition for Seattle if he clears waivers.

In all, Seattle made 14 more moves today after completing 27 transactions on Saturday. And they’re likely not done.
