Chiefs waived RB Spencer Ware.
A fullback/tailback tweener, Ware spent Chiefs camp primarily playing tailback, and didn't embarrass himself. He scored a touchdown in the preseason finale. Unfortunately, Ware was outplayed by Charcandrick West behind Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis. Darrin Reaves also remains on the roster -- for now. Sep 5 - 12:31 PM

Free agent RB Spencer Ware was arrested early Tuesday morning on suspicion of DUI.

Ware was booked into jail in Kent, Washington at 3:21 AM. No other details are available. It's Ware's second DUI arrest in nine months; he was busted in January but had the charges dropped in July. Ware was part of Seattle's final cuts over the weekend. The 2013 sixth-rounder tried to make the switch from fullback.

Seahawks waived RB Spencer Ware, TE RaShaun Allen, CB Akeem Auguste, RB Demitrius Bronson, WR Arceto Clark, QB B.J. Daniels, G Caylin Hauptmann, T Nate Isles, C Patrick Lewis, WR Chris Matthews, DE Benson Mayowa, S Terrance Parks, TE Morrell Presley, DT Andru Pulu, FB Kiero Small, DT Jimmy Staten, S Steven Terrell, LB Korey Toomer and WR Bryan Walters.

Ware, a 2013 sixth-rounder, tried to make the move from fullback to tailback. But with the Seahawks only keeping three backs (Marshawn Lynch, Robert Turbin, Christine Michael), he never had a shot. Interestingly, the Seahawks chose to keep seven wide receivers -- a group which includes former UDFA Phil Bates. B.J. Daniels is a practice squad candidate.

Seahawks RB Spencer Ware has nine carries for 28 yards through three preseason games.

He's added two catches for 13 yards. Most troubling for his roster chances, Ware worked behind someone named Demitrius Bronson in Friday's preseason game, as well as Marshawn Lynch, Christine Michael, and Robert Turbin. A 2013 sixth-rounder out of LSU, Ware's odds of making the 53 seem bleak.

According to the Seattle Times, Spencer Ware "appears basically just a tailback now" after working at fullback last offseason.

A second-year hammerhead power back out of LSU, Ware's reps have increased with Marshawn Lynch holding out. His running style is more similar to Lynch's than Christine Michael or Robert Turbin. Expected to make the Seahawks' 53-man roster, 22-year-old Ware is worth a stash in deeper Dynasty leagues.

DUI charges against Seahawks FB/RB Spencer Ware have been dismissed.

The 2013 sixth-round pick was popped for DUI in January. On Friday, a judge ruled the arresting officer "lacked reasonable suspicion of DUI at the time he initiated the traffic stop." A favorite of Rookie Scouting Portfolio's Matt Waldman coming out of LSU, Ware figures to see more carries this preseason after spending last year at fullback. He's a deep sleeper in a deep backfield.

Seahawks FB Spencer Ware's pre-trial hearing for DUI is set for March 3.

Ware was arrested in the early morning the day after the Seahawks' Divisional Round win over the Saints. Ware allegedly blew a .124 and a .122 after preforming poorly on a field sobriety test. This arrest certainly does not help his roster chances in 2014.

KING News 5 in Seattle reports Seahawks FB Spencer Ware was arrested for DUI early Sunday.

Placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury in October, Ware was a sixth-round pick out of LSU. Jail records show Ware was booked into jail at 1:56 AM, and released at 4:23 AM after posting $1,000 bond. The arrest won't help Ware's 2014 roster chances. He is a fullback-tailback hybrid.

Seahawks placed RB Spencer Ware on injured reserve with an ankle injury, ending his season.

Ware had been sidelined since Week 2. With Derrick Coleman (hamstring) also ailing, the Seahawks had to clear a roster spot for Michael Robinson, who was re-signed on Tuesday. Ware was the No. 194 pick of April's draft. He'll be back to compete for a roster spot next summer.

Seahawks declared RB Spencer Ware (ankle) inactive for Sunday's Week 3 game against the Jaguars.

Ware sustained a sprain late in the Week 2 win over the 49ers. It means Christine Michael is active. The rest of the Seahawks inactives: DB Jeron Johnson, LB Malcolm Smith, DL D'Anthony Smith, DL Benson Mayowa and DL Jordan Hill.

Seahawks rookie RB/FB Spencer Ware suffered a "significant" ankle sprain on the final play of Sunday's Week 2 win over the 49ers.

Ware, the No, 194 overall pick, played seven snaps in the victory after sitting on the sidelines for the entire season opener in Carolina. If he's going to be sidelined for upwards of a month, the Seahawks may just place him on I.R.

Rookie RB/FB Spencer Ware played tailback -- not fullback -- in the Seahawks' preseason opener and rushed seven times for 32 yards and a touchdown, adding a four-yard reception.

He also excelled in blitz pickup and made a special teams tackle. A sixth-round pick out of LSU, Ware seems to have settled in at tailback rather than pushing FB Michael Robinson, which the coaching staff initially projected. Ware runs with Lynchian power and can make cuts, which he did on his six-yard touchdown carry against the Chargers. Ware is a solid Dynasty league prospect, even though he's currently low on Seattle's depth chart.

Seahawks signed sixth-round RB/FB Spencer Ware to a four-year contract.

Ware is a north-south runner with some bulk and toughness, and he's expected to spend the majority of his time at fullback with the Seahawks. We wouldn't expect him to see many carries outside of a few short-yardage situations.
Thu, May 16, 2013 03:13:00 PM

Coach Pete Carroll stated at rookie minicamp that the Seahawks will use sixth-rounder Spencer Ware at both tailback and fullback.

Ware's primary position will be fullback, but he reported at 218 pounds and plays with some violence, like a poor man's Marshawn Lynch. "He’s going to work at both," Carroll said. I want him to learn to play fullback for us and compete at that spot. We know he can run, he’s a really aggressive tough runner. We love that about him. So we are trying to transfer that nature to the fullback spot."

Rookie Spencer Ware will play fullback for the Seahawks.

The Seahawks used college quarterback Michael Robinson as their fullback last year, but he's not a true lead blocker. At 5'10/228, Ware could carve out a role in jumbo packages. He's not going to get any carries with the Seahawks sporting Marshawn Lynch, Robert Turbin and Christine Michael at tailback.
