Seahawks waive kicker Sam Ficken, linebacker Emmanuel Beal

The Seahawks made a pair of roster moves Friday, one of which for now solves whatever kicking competition the team might have had, waiving kicker Sam Ficken and linebacker Emmanuel Beal, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

Ficken signed as a free agent in January to a minimum-salary non-guaranteed deal worth $495,000 for one season as the team began searching for replacements for veteran Sebastian Janikowski. But in March, Seattle signed Jason Myers to a four-year contract worth up to $15.45 million

Seattle might well sign another kicker to give Myers some competition in training camp, but the fact that Myers is getting $5.5 million guaranteed — including his 2019 base salary of $1.5 million — and made the Pro Bowl last season all but assures he will be the guy. Ficken spent parts of the past two seasons with the Rams and was signed by Seattle following a workout with the Seahawks. Janikowski remains unsigned.

Beal signed last spring as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Oklahoma and then spent the season on injured reserve.
