Position Listing
Sheldon Richardson
Richardson reported for the second day of voluntary offseason workouts,'s Rich Cimini reports.

The subject of frequent trade rumors the past two offseasons, Richardson is set to play out the final year of his rookie contract at the fifth-year option salary of approximately $8 million. With Muhammad Wilkerson already carrying a huge contract and Leonard Williams still on his rookie deal, the Jets aren't expected to work out an extension to retain Richardson beyond 2017. A trade might seem to make sense for the rebuilding franchise, but Richardson's salary and career trajectory would probably prevent the Jets from fetching anything more than a middle-round selection -- which is what the team will get as compensation if he leaves as an unrestricted free agent next offseason. He thus figures to stick around next to Williams and Wilkerson for one more year, giving the Jets a formidable defensive line amidst an otherwise barren roster. Richardson did have 62 tackles, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in 15 games last season, partially making up for his career-low total of 1.5 sacks. His participation at the voluntary offseason program suggests he's fine with staying in New York for another season before hitting the open market next year.

Chris Carson
Carson carried 20 times for 93 yards in Sunday's 12-9 victory over the Seahawks. He also caught one of two targets for seven yards.

With Eddie Lacy a healthy scratch, Carson out-touched all other Seahawks running backs Sunday -- although it's worth noting this was Thomas Rawls' first game back from an ankle injury and that workloads like this may not be in the cards in weeks when the Seahawks take on tougher opponents. After all, the 49ers were historically-bad against the run just a season ago, so it certainly made sense for Seattle to try and run it down their throats with its healthiest between-the-tackles tailback all game. Further clouding the outlook of Carson moving forward is the presence of C.J. Prosise, who seems secure in his role as the primary passing-down back and will likely see more playing time in games that dictate a more pass-heavy approach. However, at the very least, Carson appears to have carved out a sizable role in a committee that consists of him, Rawls and Prosise, now that Lacy convincingly seems to be the odd man out.

Garrison Smith
Smith (oblique) is expected to play in Friday's preseason game against the Chiefs, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Smith, who ended the 2016 season on injured reserve due to an oblique injury, will look to make an impression as a reserve defensive lineman.

Amara Darboh
Darboh nabbed his lone target for a 16-yard gain in Sunday's 12-9 win over the 49ers.

Darboh's lone catch came late in the first quarter and helped set up Seattle's second field goal of the contest. Overall, Darboh was on the field for 14 of 82 offensive snaps. After trading away Jermaine Kearse, Seattle opened up space behind Tyler Lockett and Doug Baldwin. The battle between Paul Richardson, Tanner McEvoy, and Darboh - who trailed the group in snaps on Sunday - will be worth watching.

Justin Senior
Senior (knee) cleared waivers and reverted to Seattle's injured reserve, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

If he gets healthy, Senior could be eligible for an injury settlement -- thus making him available for other teams. He could also be one of two IR players Seattle elects to activate, though that seems less likely. His inability to keep his knees healthy makes him unappealing to most franchises.

Knee - Injured Reserve
C.J. Prosise
Prosise, who had three catches on six targets for 22 yards, played only 17 snaps, didn't get a carry and dropped two passes, including a likely touchdown pass, Sunday against the 49ers.

A banner day for Prosise it was not, but the offense has struggled to get Prosise involved too. He's an afterthought for early down work and has mostly been involved in the two-minute offense.

D.J. Alexander
Alexander (hamstring) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Alexander has played just one defensive snap this season compared to 42 on special teams, so fantasy owners shouldn't be losing sleep over Alexander's absence. Expect Michael Wilhoite to continue to serve as the main relief linebacker.

Hamstring - Inactive for Week 3 at Tennessee
K.J. Wright
Wright recorded a team-high eight total tackles and a pass deflection in Sunday's 12-9 win over the 49ers.

Despite dealing with an ankle injury and being limited in practice last week, Wright still managed to show out in Sunday's win over San Fransisco. Wright has now posted 17 tackles (12 solo) through two games this season and should be a consistent contributor in that area so long as he remains healthy.

Delano Hill
Hill (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

Hill is expected to be ready for Sunday's matchup with the 49ers. He'll likely be used mainly as a special teams contributor.

Tanner McEvoy
McEvoy had two catches for 43 yards and a touchdown in Friday's exhibition game against the Chiefs.

McEvoy made an excellent catch on the 28-yard touchdown pass. He still faces an uphill battle to the make the team, though. Kasan Williams probably already won the last WR job, and even though rookie Amara Darboh has not caught a pass in preseason, the team likely won't cut its third-round pick. Even if McEvoy makes the team, his opportunities will be limited. But it would be fun to see what the 6-6 receiver with excellent hands could do with a steady role.

Dewey McDonald
McDonald will not return to Sunday's game against the Titans due to a knee injury, USA Today's Jason Wolf reports.

McDonald's knee injury leaves the Seahawks thin in terms of linebacker depth, though starters K.J. Wright, Bobby Wagner and Terence Garvin remain healthy. If McDonald is forced to miss an extended period of time, D.J. Alexander (hamstring) could be in line for additional snaps on defense when healthy.

Knee - Questionable for Week 3 at Tennessee
Kam Chancellor
Chancellor signed a three-year, $36 million contract extension Tuesday with $25 million guaranteed, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

"I would love to retire here," Chancellor stated prior to finalizing his new deal. This is a good possibility as the veteran safety will be 33 years old at the end of his contract. Chancellor is an elite safety, logging 86 tackles, two interceptions and eight passes defended in 12 games. Expect him to continue to record similar numbers if he's able to stay healthy in 2017.

Doug Baldwin
Baldwin caught six of nine targets for 44 yards in Sunday's 12-9 victory over the 49ers.

Baldwin played all 82 offensive snaps Sunday and ultimately tied for the team lead in both targets and receptions. However, he was hamstrung by a quarterback that constantly seemed to be running for his life behind a leaky offensive line. Until the state of the entire Seahawks offense starts, it'll be hard to trust Baldwin as the near-elite fantasy wideout most owners thought him to be.

Terence Garvin
Garvin (shoulder) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Titans.

After missing Week 2, Garvin will return to his starting role at outside linebacker. The 26-year-old recorded three tackles (one solo) and a sack in Week 1, and he'll have to battle against a strong offensive line in Tennessee.

Nick Vannett
Vannett figures to serve as the No. 3 tight end this season, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Selected at No. 94 overall in last year's draft, Vannett logged only 84 offensive snaps in nine games as a rookie while stuck behind Jimmy Graham, Luke Willson and Brandon Williams on the depth chart. Graham and Willson are still around and seemingly locked in as the top two options, but with both players in contract seasons, Vannett should at least have an opportunity to push for a significant role in 2018. Vannett is unlikely to ever serve as the team's top receiving threat at tight end, as he caught only 55 passes in 37 games at Ohio State and ran a 4.85 40-yard dash at the 2016 Combine.

Tyvis Powell
The Colts released Powell (undisclosed) on Tuesday on an injury settlement.

Powell was previously placed on injured reserve shortly after the Colts claimed him off waivers in June.

Michael Bennett
Bennett posted one sack, two tackles for a loss and one pass deflection in Sunday's 12-9 win over the 49ers.

Bennett didn't come across many tackles in Sunday's win, but he made the most of his limited opportunities with yet another sack. The star defensive end played 42 of the team's 49 defensive snaps and now has 2.5 sacks through the first two games of the season.

Cliff Avril
Avril (abdomen) was not listed on Seattle's injury report Wednesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

As expected, this means that Avril will be good to go for Sunday's matchup with Green Bay, who contained him to just two tackles and zero sacks in 2016. Michael Bennett (undisclosed) was also left off of this injury report, meaning the Packers will have to focus on shutting down both defensive ends.

Tedric Thompson
The Seahawks selected Thompson in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 111th overall.

Thompson is less athletic than most players the Seahawks target, but he earned a high grade from them anyway thanks to his production. Thompson played safety for a Colorado pass defense that dominated in 2016, and Thompson picked off seven passes in the process. He and Delano Hill give Seattle options at safety.

Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 3 at Tennessee
Gabe Holmes
Holmes was cut by the Raiders on Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Holmes lost out on a competition for the final tight end spot. He's now eligible to sign elsewhere.

Richard Sherman
Sherman (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game at Seattle.

Despite managing just one limited practice this week, Sherman will avoid missing the first game of his six-plus years in the league. He'll look to shut down whoever lines up across from him, whether it's Pierre Garcon or Marquise Goodwin.

Isaiah Battle
Battle (hamstring) is healthy and practicing with the Chiefs again, Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports.

The quick recovery is exactly what Battle needed in order to have a chance at the 53-man roster. Battle will be a depth option for the Chiefs' offensive front if he does make the roster.

Christian French
Ethan Pocic
No Updates
J.D. McKissic
McKissic had nine touches for 67 yards and three returns for 51 yards Friday against the Chiefs in Week 3 of preseason.

McKissic is a versatile player whom the Seahawks can use as a receiver split wide or as a running back. His roster spot looks assured as he continues to return kickoffs and punts in place of Tyler Lockett, and C.J. Prosise's injury issues could give him a bigger opportunity. If the injury-prone Prosise misses time, the Seahawks could turn to McKissic for the third-down role, as the three other running backs on the roster are more suited for early down work.

Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 3 at Tennessee
Oday Aboushi
No Updates
Frank Clark
Clark totaled one sack and two tackles overall in Sunday's 12-9 win over the 49ers.

Clark played just 35 of the team's 49 defensive snaps Sunday, but he still managed to add to his sack total for the season, with Sunday's takedown of Brian Hoyer giving him 1.5 through two games. He still does not see enough time on the field to be considered a legitimate IDP option, however.

Neiko Thorpe
Thorpe is dealing with a sore ankle and his status for Week 3 is still uncertain, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

The diagnosis of a sore ankle is much more relieving that initial suspicions suggested. Thorpe's status for next week remains in jeopardy, but it doesn't appear that this will be a long-term issue.

Ankle - Inactive for Week 3 at Tennessee
Trevone Boykin
Boykin was waived by the Seahawks on Saturday.

There had been some rumblings of Boykin losing out on the backup spot, but that wasn't made clear until after the team's decision to waive the 24-year-old. Boykin has had a troubling offseason, which may have factored into the team's decision to part ways, but credit Austin Davis for earning his keeps during the preseason. Boykin likely will draw interest from some other teams, so he could still see the field at some point this season, just not in a blue and green uniform.

Luke Joeckel
Joeckel returned from a knee injury and was a full participant at practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

It's unclear if this was a new issue or an aggravation of the knee treatment Joeckel underwent at the end of the preseason, but it doesn't seem to have been too serious anyhow. Expect the former first-round pick to be ready and available for Sunday's game against the Titans.

David Moore
The Seahawks selected Moore in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Moore played at a tiny Oklahoma school called East Central, but at his pro day he showed NFL-level athleticism. At 6-foot-1, 219 pounds, Moore ran the 40 in 4.43 seconds while adding a 36.5-inch vertical and 124-inch broad jump. He looks like an upside project for Seattle.

Shaquill Griffin
Griffin (concussion) was a full participant in the Seahawks' practice Thursday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

There has been no mention of when or how Griffin sustained the concussion, but he was nonetheless limited in practice Wednesday. The rookie third-round pick is apparently ready to go for Sunday's game against the 49ers, and will likely slide back into the role of nickel corner with Jeremy Lane's return.

Tyler Lockett
Lockett played 74.4 percent of offensive snaps in Sunday's 12-9 win over San Francisco, catching six of nine targets for 64 yards and adding 46 yards on two kickoff returns.

Lockett only played 53.1 percent of the Week 1 snaps, making his first appearance in a game since breaking his leg in December. Sunday's uptick may partially have been a result of Paul Richardson's limitation while playing through a finger injury, but Lockett likely would've seen an uptick in playing time even if Richardson had been completely healthy. Already making a push to reclaim the No. 2 receiver job, Lockett will probably play 60-80 percent of available offensive snaps Week 3 in Tennessee. He's only topped the 80-percent threshold once in his career.

Eddie Lacy
Lacy is listed as active Sunday at Tennessee, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

One week ago, Lacy landed on the Seahawks' list of inactives, partly due to the return to health of Thomas Rawls. Head coach Pete Carroll has opted to have four running backs available Sunday, so Lacy will vie for reps with Chris Carson, C.J. Prosise and Rawls. Due to each player's individual snap count on the season, Lacy may sit fourth on the pecking order.

Mike Davis
The Seahawks added Davis to their practice squad Monday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of reports.

After two seasons with the 49ers, Davis tried earning a spot with their rival during training camp. Although he was unable to earn a spot on their 53-man roster, the 24-year-old will look to impress with the Seahwaks' practice unit.

Blair Walsh
Walsh made two field goals Sunday but missed his only point after attempt.

Walsh's long was of 27 yards. His penchant for missing PATs is partly what got him released in Minnesota last year.

Tyrone Swoopes
No Updates
Russell Wilson
Wilson completed 23 of 39 passes for 198 yards and one touchdown during Sunday's 12-9 victory over the 49ers. He also carried 12 times for 34 yards.

It wasn't pretty, but Wilson ultimately pulled out the victory Sunday thanks in large part to his Houdini-like ability to escape dangerous situations. He won the day on a characteristically-elusive play midway through the fourth quarter during which Wilson escaped at least two potential sacks to find WR Paul Richardson for the game-winning touchdown from nine yards out. Although the rest of Wilson's day could be considered erratic and underwhelming, most of the offense's struggles seemed to belong to the offensive line. Not to mention, Wilson's stat line could've looked much prettier if not for a pair of end-zone drops by C.J. Prosise and Tanner McEvoy.

Matt Tobin
The Eagles traded Tobin to the Seahawks on Monday.

The Seahawks surrendered a 2018 fifth-round pick and took back a 2018 seventh-round pick in addition to Tobin in the deal. Tobin started at right tackle and played 22 snaps for the Eagles in Thursday's preseason game against the Bills, but could be ticketed for a backup role with the Seahawks when the regular season begins.

Tre Madden
Madden was waived by the Seahawks Saturday, Adam Caplan of the ESPN reports.

The 22-year-old back signed with the Seahawks in May as an undrafted free agent. Madden was eyeing a role at fullback with the club, but the team has ultimately decided to part ways with the USC product.

Joe Jones
No Updates
Austin Davis
Davis completed 10 of 16 passes for 123 yards and touchdown Thursday, leading the Seahawks on a 75-yard game-winning scoring drive to beat the Raiders in the preseason finale.

Trevone Boykin entered camp as the favorite for the backup quarterback job behind Russell Wilson, but Davis outplayed him in the last three preseason games, including Thursday, when Boykin threw two interceptions. Davis was 5-for-5 for 67 yards on the winning drive, completing the 16-yard touchdown strike with 1:10 remaining. Boykin is a dual-threat quarterback who at times can dazzle, but Davis is a steadier veteran who may be less susceptible to turnovers. The team's decision on a backup could come down to whether it values upside over stability, or vice versa.

Michael Wilhoite
Wilhoite (calf) was not present on the Seahawks' injury report Friday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Wilhoite had been dealing with a lingering calf issue since late August and was inactive for the Seahawks' season-opening loss to the Packers. The 30-year-old has increased his chances to play against the 49ers on Sunday, especially with Terence Garvin (shoulder) listed as doubtful.

Jon Ryan
No Updates
Germain Ifedi
Ifedi (undisclosed) returned to practice Wednesday, Liz Mathews of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Ifedi sustained minor injuries during last week's scuffle with Frank Clark but appears good to go moving forward.

Malcolm Johnson
Johnson (undisclosed) was waived from the Seahawks' injured reserve Monday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Johnson landed on injured reserve last week after suffering an undisclosed injury in practice. Now that he's no longer tied to the Seahawks, the 2015 sixth-rounder can immediately begin looking for work elsewhere.

Undisclosed - Questionable for Week 3 at Tennessee
Jordan Simone
Simone (knee) reverted back to the Seahawks' injured reserve Thursday after clearing waivers.

Simone was waived/injured by the Seahawks on Wednesday after suffering a torn ACL. He'll now spend the entire 2017 on the team's injured reserve.

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Justin Britt
Britt signed a three-year, $27 million contract extension with the Seahawks on Tuesday, freelance NFL reporter Adam Caplan reports.

Britt had been in the final year of his rookie deal, and his new extension keeps him under contract with Seattle through the 2020 campaign. He'll be expected to continue in his role as the team's starting center.

Luke Willson
Willson, who caught all three targets for 25 yards Sunday, could be more active in the passing game in Week 3 if Jimmy Graham is limited or doesn't play because of an injured ankle.

The Seahawks don't use tight ends in the passing game much because they are often kept in to help a bad offensive line block. So Willson likely won't get more than 3-5 targets if Graham is out.

Dion Jordan
Jordan (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list Saturday.

The news means that Jordan is eligible to return to game action following Week 6. Jordan will not count against the team's 53-man roster while he's sidelined with the knee injury.

Knee - Out for Week 3 at Tennessee
Malik McDowell
McDowell (head) was placed on the Non-Football Injury list Saturday.

His placement on the list ahead of the season opener means that he'll be ineligible to return to action until after Week 6. Even still, there's no guarantee McDowell will be ready by then and the Seahawks have yet to define any kind of role yet for the Michigan State product.

Head - Out for Week 3 at Tennessee
Justin Coleman
The Patriots dealt Coleman to Seattle on Friday in exchange for a late-round draft pick, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Coleman should provide some depth to Seattle's secondary, but doesn't figure to have a huge impact defensively on Sunday's given the team's strength at the position.

Jimmy Graham
Graham (ankle) is active for Sunday's game at Tennessee.

Graham didn't inspire confidence in his ability to play with back-to-back absences Wednesday and Thursday. That said, he turned in a full practice Friday, which was followed by a vote of confidence from head coach Pete Carroll. Per Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times, Graham was seen running during a pregame workout and will now look to produce against the Titans' 20th-ranked pass defense (230.5 yards per game).

Akeem King
King was waived by the Falcons on Friday, Tom Pelissero of reports.

Despite a decent showing in the preseason, King faced an uphill battle to earn a roster spot out of camp. That dream has officially come to an end, as he's been handed his walking papers by Atlanta.

Joey Hunt
Hunt (ankle) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

The Seahawks took plenty of caution with Hunt, but he is expected to be ready if called upon Sunday.

Thomas Rawls
Rawls played 16 snaps and carried five times for four yards Sunday against the 49ers in his return from a preseason ankle injury.

Coach Pete Carroll said the team intended to limit Rawls' workload in his first game back. He gave no indication of that prior to the game, however. Rawls didn't have a carry after the first quarter and played two snaps in the second half. Chris Carson ran well in the fourth quarter against a tired 49ers defense. A starter hasn't been named for Week 3, but it would be surprising if Rawls was forgotten so quickly. It would also be surprising if Eddie Lacy was inactive for consecutive games, so that complicates matters too for Rawls. As does a weak offensive line that provided little running room Sunday.

Tyler Ott
No Updates
Paul Richardson
Richardson (finger) was removed from the injury report ahead of Sunday's game in Tennessee.

Though he was a full practice participant all week, Richardson presumably still has to deal with some pain in the finger he dislocated during last week's 12-9 win over the 49ers. He also played fewer snaps than Tyler Lockett in the contest, which suggests Richardson may just be the No. 3 receiver now that his teammate is up to speed.

Jeremy Lane
Lane was ejected from Sunday's game in Green Bay for throwing a punch, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

The penalty took place on a play where Nazair Jones intercepted Aaron Rodgers and took it to the house, before having an illegal block in the back negate the touchdown. With Lane out, Neiko Thorpe and and rookie Shaquill Griffin will take over opposite of Richard Sherman.

Jordan Roos
Coach's Decision - Inactive for Week 3 at Tennessee
No Updates
Nazair Jones
The Seahawks selected Jones in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 102nd overall.

Jones isn't the standout athlete you'd normally expect the Seahawks to target, but it's easy enough to see what use they have in mind for him. At 6-foot-5, 304 pounds, Jones is built to eat space.

George Fant
Fant (knee) was placed on IR Saturday.

The designation means that Fant officially will miss the 2017 regular season. Fant knew he was going to be sidelined for the season's entirety following the ACL tear two weeks ago, but by placing him on IR, the Seahawks are able to free up a roster spot.

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Tyrus Thompson
Thompson (undisclosed) reverted to injured reserve after being waived/injured, per the official NFL transaction log.

As expected, Thompson cleared waivers and landed on the team's IR. He will now remain there for the 2017 season unless he and the Seahawks can reach an injury settlement.

Undisclosed - Injured Reserve
Bobby Wagner
Wagner returned from a thigh injury and was a full participant at practice Thursday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Wagner played all 49 defensive snaps against the 49ers on Sunday, so this was likely a cautionary measure more than anything else. The Seahawks' defensive anchor should be ready to go against the Titans in Week 3.

DeShawn Shead
Shead (knee) has been placed on the Reserve/PUP list.

The move allows the Seahawks to free up a roster spot without having to part ways with Shead. The 28-year-old will be eligible to return to game action following Week 6, but it's unsure whether he'll be ready by that point. We should have a clearer understanding of his progress as Week 6 inches closer.

Bradley McDougald
McDougald is signing with Seattle on a one-year, $2 million contract,'s Ian Rapoport reports.

McDougald fills a clear need for a Seahawks team that previously didn't have any veteran depth at safety behind the phenomenal starting duo of Kam Chancellor (ankle) and Earl Thomas (leg) -- both of whom are recovering from surgery. It's a bit surprising McDougald had to settle for such a modest contract and a backup role, coming off a 2016 season in which he recorded a career-high 91 tackles (79 solo) while starting all 16 games for Tampa Bay. He also had 87 tackles (67 solo) and played all 16 games the previous year, but his work in pass coverage has always been questionable, which explains the inability to find a better offer.

Jarran Reed
Reed (hip) is questionable for the Seahawks' Week 4 game against the Jets, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

It's unclear when Reed suffered the hip injury, as is the severity of the ailment. Regardless, his status will be confirmed before kickoff.

DeAndre Elliott
Elliot underwent ankle surgery Thursday morning, Lindsey Wisniewski of USA Today reports.

Elliot was placed on injured reserve ahead of the team's season opener against the Packers and will be out for the entire regular season. He will now begin the rehab process in an effort to be ready for next season.

Ankle - Injured Reserve
Marcus Smith
The Seahawks and Smith agreed to a deal on Friday, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

Smith spent his first three seasons with the Eagles before being released prior to training camp this summer. The 2014 first-round pick was unable to find a fit at outside linebacker in Philadelphia, tallying just four sacks in three seasons. He skipped all of the team's voluntary workouts this offseason, so he was likely looking for a change of scenery. Smith will be competing for a spot on the Seahawks' final roster this preseason.

Earl Thomas
Thomas recorded 11 tackles (seven solo) and had one pass breakup during Sunday's loss to the Packers.

The pass breakup was a near interception on a deep pass to Davante Adams late in the first half, but Thomas was unable to haul it in. The veteran free safety played all 82 of the Seahawks' defensive snaps and didn't appear to be inhibited in any way by last season's tibia injury.

Mike Tyson
The Seahawks selected Tyson in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 187th overall.

Tyson fits the mold of a ball-hawking defensive back that Seattle tends to target in the draft. He was productive during his career at Cincinnati and capped off his senior season with five picks and five pass breakups. Tyson may not have any off the charts numbers, but he's a tough safety that should help on special teams at the very least.
