The Atlanta Falcons have lost defensive back Teez Tabor off of their practice squad on Thursday after the Seattle Seahawks have signed him to their 53-man active roster according to Ian Rapoport.
Tabor was signed a free agent in the offseason. He played in the preseason but was cut when the Falcons trimmed their roster to the 53-man limit. He was resigned to the practice squad after clearing waivers, but he didn’t appear in a game for the Falcons.
The move by the Seahawks was necessary after it was learned safety Jamal Adams is having season-ending surgery following a torn quad.
“Sources: Seahawks star S Jamal Adams will have season-ending surgery to repair his torn quad tendon suffered against the #Broncos, his 2022 over as he’s headed to IR,” reported Rapoport on Twitter. “Adams is still talking to doctors about the timing of the procedure, as well as who performs it.”
“The Seahawks are signing CB Teez Tabor off the Falcons practice squad to fill his roster spot, source said.”
The Falcons had already announced they had signed running back B.J. Baylor to the practice squad prior to the news that Tabor would be leaving for Seattle.
Baylor rushed for 1,337 yards with Oregon State in 2021.
