Seattle Seahawks 2020 practice squad includes Shaquem Griffin


The Seattle Seahawks shed their roster from 80 players to 53 by the NFL's deadline on Saturday. 

Now, the team can begin building its 16-player practice squad. 

Follow along as we track reports of players added to the Seahawks practice squad on Sunday. 

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported the Seahawks are trying to bring back Shaquem Griffin on the team's practice squad after Griffin went unclaimed on waivers. Griffin appeared in 32 games (one start) in two seasons with Seattle, tallying 16 combined tackles.'

Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic confirms Griffin will join the Seahawks practice squad, staying in Seattle with twin brother Shaquill. 

Terez A. Paylor of Yahoo! Sports reports defensive tackle Anthony Rush will join Seattle's practice squad following his release on Saturday by the Philadelphia Eagles. Rush was signed by the Eagles as an undrafted free agent last spring before being waived and signed to the Raiders practice squad.

The 24-year-old was signed to the Eagles active roster in October due to several injuries at defensive tackle and logged 10 tackles and three tackles for loss in nine games.

Defensive back Ryan Neal will also return to Seattle and join the Seahawks practice squad, per Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic. 

Neal, who was released Saturday, spent time on Seattle's practice squad in 2019. He was promoted to the active roster in December for three games, recording one solo tackle. 

Cornerback Jayson Stanley will also join the Seahawks practice squad, according to ESPN's Brady Henderson. Stanley joined the Seahawks in April, when he was claimed off waivers by Seattle following his release from the Jacksonville Jaguars. 


Brady Henderson reports Stephen Sullivan is also heading to the Seahawks practice squad after the 2020 seventh-round pick was waived Saturday. 

Wide receiver Lance Lenoir will join the Seahawks practice squad as well, per Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic. 

Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports cornerback Gavin Heslop is headed to the Seahawks practice squad. Heslop came to Seattle in April immediately after he went undrafted in the 2020 NFL Draft out of Stony Brook.

Wide receiver Cody Thompson will return to the Seahawks practice squad for the second-straight year, ESPN's Brady Henderson reports. The 24-year-old spent a week on Seattle's practice squad in the middle of the season and then rejoined the squad prior to the divisional-round loss in Green Bay.

Another wide receiver is headed to the Seahawks practice squad. As Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reported, rookie wideout Aaron Fuller will stay in Seattle.

The former University of Washington standout pulled in 117 passes for 1,576 yards and 10 touchdowns for the Huskies in his last two years at Washington. 

A familiar face is returning to Seattle's practice squad: Quarterback Danny Etling, according to Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic. 

Etling, a 2018 seventh-round pick by the Patriots, spent a year on the practice squad before New England cut him in 2019 while trying to transition him to receiver. He moved back to quarterback with the Falcons and moved between the active roster and practice squad. Seattle claimed Etling off waivers from the Falcons in August. 

ESPN's Brady Henderson reports ODFA Tommy Champion will be rejoining the team on the practice squad.
