> The Seahawks signed nine practice squad players to future contracts. They signed eight of them Wednesday, and quarterback B.J Daniels on Thursday, in what is largely a procedural move. Signed Wednesday were cornerback Akeem Auguste, wide receivers Phil Bates and Arceto Clark, defensive tackles Michael Brooks, D'Anthony Smith and Dewayne Cherrington, tight end Cooper Helfet and guard Jared Smith.
