Seattle releases DT Jordan Hill, veteran Jahri Evans

SEATTLE (AP) The Seattle Seahawks have waived defensive tackle Jordan Hill and veteran offensive lineman Jahri Evans as part of the moves to reach the 53-man roster limit.

Seattle's roster cuts were posted to the team's official website on Saturday.

Hill was waived with an injury designation after suffering a hamstring injury in the preseason finale against Oakland on Thursday, ending an injury-filled career with the Seahawks. Hill was a third-round pick in 2013, but never played in more than 13 games in a season. Before the start of training camp, Hill was expected to be a starter.

Evans' veteran contract was terminated after he was signed during training camp, but he was clearly going to be a backup.

Seattle also made a pair of trades Saturday, acquiring defensive backs L.J. McCray from San Francisco and Dewey McDonald from Oakland.
