Seahawks TE Anthony McCoy Clears Waivers, Reverts To Injured Reserve
Seahawks TE Anthony McCoy cleared waivers Wednesday and will now be placed on the Seahawks' injured reserve. He will not count toward the 90-man roster. McCoy tore his achilles tendon last week and was waived Tuesday, prompting some fears that he'd be claimed by another club; ultimately, no team was willing to pay his salary in the off-chance that he'll be ready to return to action in 2013, and McCoy becomes a free agent in 2014, so there was no long-term benefit from another team grabbing him and stashing him on the IR.
McCoy was Seattle's backup tight end in 2012 and played in nearly 50% of the team's offensive snaps. Rookie Luke Willson is the likely 'next man up' and a few other competitors for McCoy's job include Sean McGrath, Cooper Helfet, and Darren Fells.
