Hawks cut Harris in flurry of moves

In what really came as no surprise Tuesday, the Seahawks released running back DuJuan Harris among a flurry of moves.

They also cut defensive back Akeem Davis and wide receiver B.J. Daniels while placing Thomas Rawls on injured reserve.

Those moves made room for the team to sign running back Bryce Brown and tight end Chase Coffman while activating linebacker Brock Coyle from IR. They have one spot open on the 53-man roster.

They also terminated three from their practice squad: WR Antwan Goodley, DT Justin Hamilton and LB Alex Singleton.

Harris gained just 42 yards on 18 carries against Baltimore after Rawls was injured Sunday, so it was no shock that the team decided to go with Brown, Derrick Coleman and Fred Jackson. They also could bring in another back.

Brown replaces Rawls on the roster and figures to see his first action after being inactive in two brief stays with the team over the past few weeks. In three seasons, Brown has run for 1,004 yards (4.4 per carry) with Philadelphia and Buffalo.

Coffman is back because Luke Willson suffered a rib injury Sunday and apparently is at least questionable for this Sunday vs. Cleveland. Like Brown, Coffman had been with the Hawks very briefly (signed Dec. 1 and cut Dec. 9).

If Willson cannot play, Seattle will go with Cooper Helfet, recently re-signed Anthony McCoy and Coffman at tight end.
