Seahawks shuffling around their roster

In preparation for their game against the Ravens, the Seahawks announced a series of roster moves.

Most notably, wide receiver Deon Butler has been activated off the physically unable to perform list, according to The Olympian. Butler, who finished second on the team in receptions (36) and had four touchdowns in 2010, brings an added element of speed to Seattle’s receiving corps and could help boost a passing offense that is dead last in the league.

To make room for Butler, the Seahawks placed rookie receiver Kris Durham on season-ending injured reserve with a labrum issue. Durham was the Seahawks’ fourth-round draft choice in 2011 and tallied three catches for 30 yards in three games this season.

The Seahawks also released defensive tackle Al Woods and signed rookie defensive lineman Pep Levingston off the practice squad to the active roster. Seattle cut offensive guard Paul Fanaika off the practice squad, too, and brought back receiver Patrick Williams, who was with the team during training camp this year.
