Seahawks release RB Allen Bradford, sign LB Heath Farwell

Posted by Danny O'Neil

RENTON -- The Seahawks released running back Allen Bradford, a player they claimed on waivers from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week.

Seattle signed Heath Farwell to take his place on the 53-man roster. Bradford, who played for Carroll at USC, was chosen in the sixth round by the Bucs. Initially recruited to college as a linebacker, the Seahawks had played him there a bit with the scout team during Monday's practice.

The three players on Seattle's Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list will begin practicing Wednesday: WR Deon Butler, TE Cameron Morrah and CB Roy Lewis.

The Seahawks will have up to three weeks to decide to activate any or all of the three to the 53-man roster.

"We'll ease those guys into it," coach Pete Carroll said. "It's good to have them back out there. These are all guys that have contributed and been factors for us."

Butler is coming back from a broken leg he suffered last December in San Francisco, Morrah is recovering from surgery on his toe and Lewis -- a special-teams captain in 2010 -- is coming back from knee surgery.
