Seahawks placed LB Matt McCoy (knee) on injured reserve, waived/injured TE Cooper Helfet and RB Vai Taua, and waived DL Lazarius Levingston with an injury settlement.

Despite suffering the knee injury last season, McCoy was given a one-year deal, but isn't ready to go just yet. Like Levingstron, Helfet and Taua could also receive settlements.
