The Seahawks made a low-profile move to comply with the 75-man limit, releasing receiver Michael Bumpus. The team had already cleared four roster spots Monday. Releasing Bumpus tells us nothing about the Seahawks we didn't already know.

It also means kickers Brandon Coutu and Olindo Mare will continue competing for a single roster spot. Their performances during the third exhibition game, at Kansas City, did little to advance the discussion.
