Seahawks Mum About Australian Rugby Star

Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said any player trying to make the transition from rugby to the NFL is in for a difficult challenge. Carroll was peppered with questions about Australian National Rugby League star Jarryd Hayne on Wednesday after Hayne announced his plans to seek a chance in the NFL. Seattle has been linked to Hayne because of a recent visit to the Pacific Northwest during which Hayne took in the University of Washington and took a tour of the Seahawks facility. Carroll said he did not meet Hayne during his visit to Seattle. During a news conference in Sydney earlier Wednesday, Hayne did not identify which NFL clubs - if any - were interested in offering him a tryout. RENTON, Wash. (AP) – October 16, 2014

Seattle Releases Terrell, Re-Signs Scruggs

The Seattle Seahawks have released safety Steven Terrell just two days after he was forced into action against Dallas because of injuries in Seattle's secondary. The Seahawks released Terrell on Tuesday and re-signed defensive lineman Greg Scruggs. Terrell was signed off Seattle's practice squad to the active roster on Saturday before the Seahawks' game against Dallas. When Byron Maxwell went down with a calf strain in the first half, Terrell ended up being used as an extra defensive back. He was in on 22 defensive plays and another 10 on special teams. Scruggs has yet to be active for a game this season as he continues to work back from a knee injury that forced him to miss the entire 2013 season. RENTON, Wash. (AP) - October 15, 2014
