The Seattle Seahawks began their move towards reaching the League mandated 53 player roster by reducing the team roster by twelve players yesterday.
Among the twelve were some familiar names.
The Seahawks will cut two more players before today's practice and go from 70 players to 53 by Monday's deadline. The team will be allowed a five men practice squad in addition to the 53 men roster..

Seattle Seahawks Linebacker Anthony Simmons is healthy and ready for a break out year for self and club.
The Seahawks continue to busily sign additional veteran players as they head toward the draft.

They call it a voluntary "passing" camp. But so much of the Seattle Seahawks'
first gathering off 2003 seems to be focused on defense.
The Seattle Seahawks finished one of the busiest weeks in team history last week and they have very little to show for it in the way of free agent signings.
The team did manage to keep one of it's own.
