Center Joey Hunt promoted to Active Roster-Battle re-signed

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13
  • I thought this was interesting because he has at least one play at fullback. It would be cool to see him do it again.

    There's also an interesting move where they cut, then re-signed Isaih Battle in order to save $25,000

    In addition to serving as Justin Britt’s backup last season, Hunt notably saw very brief action at fullback on his first NFL play, helping pave the way for a 1-yard touchdown run in a win over Atlanta.

    Because of his veteran status, Battle had to be either promoted to fill the active roster spot or allowed to become a free agent. Waiving him saved a little bit of money — roughly $25,000 — and the Seahawks are counting every penny right now as they have roughly $96,000 in available cap space right now.


    Oday Aboushi, has been out the last two weeks with a shoulder injury and it’s unclear when he will return.

    Also, Ethan Pocic, who has been the team’s backup center, is now set as the starting right guard with Oday Aboushi and Seattle may have wanted added depth at center in case something were to happen to Britt.

  • The bigger news is why they promoted Hunt. Pocic missed practice with an ankle injury yesterday and Hunt is to cover for Pocic (as BU center) should he not be able to go on Sunday.

    Better news today. He practiced yesterday and sounds like he has a good shot to play Sunday now.
