Nowthat the dust has settled somewhat from the final cuts over the weekend (and there's relatively nothing of interest happening today), Mike Sando has compiled lists of all the NFC West teams' cuts. The Seahawks' list can be found here.
Overall, I think the coaching staff made some pretty good decisions; a couple of which were long overdue. Brian Russell's time was definitely up, and carrying two kickers for that long just seemed silly in retrospect. Brandon Coutu's kickoffs, in the end, are what killed his chances, despite Olindo Mare uncharacteristically missing a couple in a row during the Chiefs game in preseason.
Kevin Hobbs, Marquis Floyd and Russell all found new teams, with Hobbs being the latest Seahawk castoff to land in Detroit. Floyd is now a Brown, and, as earlier reported, Russell is in Jacksonville.
I'm also relieved to see credit being given for where it's due. Take Will Herring, Nick Reed and Michael Bennett's presence on the 53-man roster as living proof of this. Herring had been solid in special teams in recent years, but never seemed to do much in game situations beyond that. That all changed during this preseason. And no one expected 7th-round pick Nick Reed to be the holy terror for opposing teams' QBs, but he most certainly was. As for Michael Bennett and even Derek Walker? Total no-names in Seattle who made a splash big enough to be kept as quality depth under the Hawks' solid starting front four.
The only disappointment I saw was cutting Courtney Taylor, who finally seemed to be developing a solid rapport with Matt Hasselbeck and didn't choke outside of practice. He has yet to find a home, but the Rams would be stupid to pass him up at this point. (And let's hope they continue their amusing trend of personnel stupidity.)
Mora has also said that at least one of the Bennett/Reed/Walker trio will suit up for Sunday's home opener, and I'm banking on it being Reed.
