Seahawks flex depth in outing against Bears

Seahawks have made three playoff appearances since 2010.

While the NFL expanded practice squads from eight to 10 players this past week, two additional roster spots is surely not enough space to contain all the talent stashed in Seattle.

Teams are mandated to trim rosters from 90 to 75 on Tuesday. Days later, they'll finalize their 53-man roster.

The Seahawks might boast the deepest roster from top to bottom, but they will soon have to part ways with some highly skilled players.

Humiliating the Bears in the first half of a 34-6 win Friday night, the Seahawks' first-team offense and defense is clicking.

Quarterback Russell Wilson piloted scoring drives on each of the team's first five series.

Wilson, who completed 15 of 20 passes for 202 yards and two touchdowns, connected with five different receivers while also riding the running game. Running backs Marshawn Lynch, Christine Michael and Robert Turbin pounded their way for 70 yards on 17 carries.

Their defense was impeccable. Special teams were superb.

It was a complete performance as far as preseason games go.

What's more is they were able to maintain a high level of play deep into the fourth quarter.

While the Seahawks are rich in talent, they have never been afraid to part ways with draft picks, allowing more opportunities for undrafted free agents.

Developing homegrown talent on the cheap is how Seattle is built to sustain success.

Since 2010, 15 undrafted players have earned a roster spot on the 53-man roster. In that same time, Seahawks brass has released nine players who were drafted that same year.
