Seahawks work out seven, make moves to practice squad

After practice Monday, the Seattle Seahawks worked out the following seven players (with former colleges): QB Jake Heaps (Miami), TE Cameron Clear (Texas A&M), TE Chase Coffman (Missouri), DB Jonathan Dowling (Western Kentucky), DE Glenn Foster (Illinois), DB Keon Lyn (Syracuse) and TE Harold Spears (New Hampshire).

The team ended up waiving defensive lineman Robert Thomas and TE RaShaun Allen from the practice squad and adding Spears, along with defensive lineman Julius Warmsley (Tulane).

As for the other workouts, Heaps played high school football in the Seattle area at Skyline in Sammamish, Washington. He spent some time with the New York Jets this offseason, and Jayson Jenks of The Seattle Times wrote a terrific feature on him in June.

Coffman (6-6, 244) was a third-round pick of the Bengals in 2009. He had been part of the Tennessee Titans the past two seasons, but was waived a couple weeks ago.
