Akeem Aguste
 
I'm not sure if anyone knew this but AA is on the practice squad of the Seahawks. I have never seen it posted on here.

Thanks for the heads up. Found a short article about AA from early this month that complimented him.

Akeem Auguste shows up to work each day to a locker that features Doug Baldwin to his right, and Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas a few steps to his left. Yet Auguste, a member of the Seahawks practice squad, would undoubtedly pass unnoticed through a crowd of even the most die-hard Seahawks fans.
As the rest of the practice squad, Auguste takes part in every workout and meeting during the week, then spends game days on the sideline out of uniform — and out of sight and out of mind of the 68,000-plus spectators who cram CenturyLink Field on Sundays.
What matters to Auguste, though, is that he gains the notice of his teammates and coaches.
He has accomplished that, which became apparent during a recent interview. While Auguste talked to a reporter after a recent practice, Baldwin and quarterback Russell Wilson each interrupted to throw in a few compliments.
“That’s a good football player right there, man,’’ Wilson said. “He (intercepted) me in practice the other day.’’
Such words, Auguste hopes, foreshadow getting what he really wants — a chance to join Wilson and the rest of the Seahawks on the field someday.

He was a great player for us, glad he is doing well.

It should be something that some of our guys who leave early should take note of that a player as good as Akeem is on a practice squad. It is that hard to make an NFL roster.

Practice Squad players get a minimum of $6000 a week, if you're with the team the hole season, that's a damn fine living for working half a year.

That's a tough rotation to crack, there. But rootin' for AA, to be sure.

Wow! Had no idea the practice squad guys make that much per week. Does that include pre season as well?

I believe the practice squad is formed after the last cut (to 53 man rosters). Prior to that, players are paid by whatever their FA contract specifies, usually a few thousand per week. I think the squad is disbanded at season's end, but players might get paid something between seasons.
