Cleveland Browns v New York Giants

An NFL roster is never set in strong and the Seahawks continued to make tweaks on Sunday after Saturday's cutdown to 53 players.

Seattle added cornerback Simeon Thomas off waivers from the Cleveland Browns and guard Jordan Simmons off waivers from the Oakland Raiders.

Thomas was a sixth-round pick of the Browns this spring. At 6-foot-3, he fits Seattle’s preferences for larger cornerbacks. He is the cousin of wide receiver Marvin Bracy, who spent time with Seattle in training camp was waived on Saturday.

Simmons signed with Oakland as an undrafted free agent out of USC in 2017.

With the addition of two new players, two players currently on the roster after to go to make room. Per Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network, Seattle is waived former third-round pick Rees Odhiambo, likely to free up the spot for Simmons' addition.

Odhiambo has appeared in 15 games for Seattle and started seven games at left tackle last season after George Fant was lost to a torn ACL in the preseason.

Seattle also saw two of the players it waived on Saturday claims by other teams.

Wide receiver Amara Darboh was claimed by the New England Patriots while linebacker D.J. Alexander was claimed by the Philadelphia Eagles.

Darboh was a third-round pick of the Seahawks in 2017. He was injured for most of training camp and did not appear in a preseason game this year.

Alexander was acquired in a trade with the Kansas City Chiefs for Kevin Pierre-Louis last year. Alexander made the Pro Bowl in 2016 as a special teams standout.
