Bernard violated the league's personal conduct policy. He was arrested in April for allegedly hitting his girlfriend in the head at a nightclub. He received a continuance of a charge of domestic violence.
Both were suspended without pay, and Babineaux was fined a second game check for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
The team set its the regular-season roster of 53. Wide receiver Ben Obomanu was placed on injured reserve one day after breaking his clavicle in the preseason finale against Oakland. Seattle kept two kickers: veteran Olindo Mare and rookie Brandon Coutu.
Rookie Justin Forsett, a running star this summer, made the team. Camp standout receiver Michael Bumpus of Washington State did not.
