Seattle Claims DT Garrison Smith Off Waivers From 49ers

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks have claimed defensive tackle Garrison Smith off waivers.

Seattle made the move Sunday, according to the NFL transaction report. The team released defensive tackle Justin Hamilton to clear a spot on the 53-man roster for Smith.

Smith spent the preseason with San Francisco and played well for the 49ers with 15 tackles and four sacks. He was on the 49ers’ practice squad but has not appeared in a regular-season game in his two years in the league.

Seattle’s initial 53-man roster Saturday listed four defensive tackles.

The Seahawks also had four players clear waivers and revert to injured reserve: defensive tackle Jordan Hill, linebacker Eric Pinkins, offensive lineman Terry Poole and tight end Joe Sommers.

Seattle also started piecing together its practice squad, signing six players: defensive end Tyler Harris, linebacker Kache Palacio, guard Will Pericak and wide receivers Rodney Smith, Kasen Williams and Kenny Lawler.
