Hawks release RB Moore, LB Williams, sign RB Rankin to PS

According to a report by Clare Farnsworth of, the Seattle Seahawks have released running back Devin Moore and linebacker Thomas Williams from the practice squad, and added former University of Washington product running back Louis Rankin to the practice squad roster, leaving one spot available.

Moore, a University of Wyoming product, flashed a quick burst through the hole and ran tough for a smaller back during preseason play, but had trouble in pass protection.

Williams. a fifth-round selection by Jacksonville in 2008, was signed to the team's practice squad when they trimmed down to the final, 53-man roster in September.

Rankin made the Oakland Raiders roster as the team's fourth running back and main kick returner, but was cut this week with Oakland having to add a receiver.
