Seahawks add two rookie free agents

RENTON, Wash. -- The Seahawks made several roster moves Saturday morning, adding rookie safety Steven Terrell and rookie linebacker Brandon Denmark. The team also released defensive tackle Dewayne Cherrington.

Terrell (5-foot-10, 195 pounds) played college ball at Texas A&M. He wasn’t drafted, but signed with the Houston Texans as a rookie free agent before being released at the end of May.

Denmark (6-3, 245) played at Florida A&M. Denmark attended the rookie minicamp of the Green Bay Packers. The Seahawks are a little short at linebacker for now with Bruce Irvin and Korey Toomer on the PUP list, and Malcolm Smith still not practicing after offseason ankle surgery.

The Seahawks were able to add two players and release only one because running back Marshawn Lynch does not count as a roster spot while he’s holding out.
