The Seattle Seahawks have made the 22 roster moves necessary to trim their roster from 75 to the league mandated maximum of 53 players by Saturday's 1 p.m. deadline.

With the struggles of Phillip Adams and Akeem Auguste at cornerback in the preseason finale against the Oakland Raiders, the Seahawks traded for Indianapolis Colts cornerback Marcus Burley in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick in 2015. The Colts announced the trade early Saturday afternoon.

With 700 players hitting the waiver wire across the league on Saturday, the 53-man roster could change again in the coming days.

The following moves were made to reduce Seattle's roster...
