Hawks make two trades, keep 12 DBs — for now

As usual, the Seahawks made a lot of fans scratch their heads with some of their moves on cutdown day. But, as usual, some of the moves are going to be very temporary.

It was no surprise that John Schneider pulled a trade — he has made at least one in every preseason (16 total). But the surprise was that he traded for two safeties.

The Seahawks reportedly added Dewey McDonald (6 feet, 220 pounds) from Oakland and L.J. McCray (6 feet, 215 pounds) from San Francisco. The Hawks reportedly gave up conditional seventh-rounders for both (2017 seventh or McDonald, 2018 pick for McCray).

With those additions, the Seahawks made a deep secondary even deeper — keeping 12 for now. They kept undrafted rookies Tyvis Powell (not a surprise) and De’Andre Elliott (a big surprise) over young veterans Tye Smith and Marcus Burley (injured).

The Seahawks also terminated the contracts of veterans Jahri Evans and Will Tukuafu; waived DT Brandin Bryant, TE Clayton Echard, S Keenan Lambert, LB Steve Longa, WR Douglas McNeil III, WR E.Z. Nwachukwu, WR Kasen Williams, RB Troymaine Pope, G/C Will Pericak, WR Antwan Goodley, DE Tylor Harris, S Keenan Lambert, WR Kenny Lawler, LB Kache Palacio, DE Ryan Robinson and DT Tani Tupou; and waived/injured TE Joe Sommers, DT Jordan Hill, LB Eric Pinkins and OT Terry Poole.

Rookies Boykin, McEvoy, Powell star as Hawks beat KC on last play

At Kansas City logoNo surprise: Rookies once again dominated the Seahawks’ preseason opener.

Last year it was draft picks Tyler Lockett and Frank Clark. This year it was undrafted rookies Trevone Boykin, Tanner McEvoy and Tyvis Powell.

After Boykin had left the game in the third quarter, he came back in the fourth and rallied the Seahawks to a 17-16 win in Kansas City with no time left. His 37-yard scoring pass to the 6-foot-6 McEvoy set up fellow UDFA Troymaine Pope’s winning two-point run.

It made Boykin and McEvoy the big standouts in Seattle’s first preseason game, along with Powell, pass rushers Cassius Marsh and Frank Clark, running back Christine Michael and the starting offensive line.
