Former 49ers linebacker Nick Moody is now a member of the Seattle Seahawks’ practice squad, a source told CSNBayArea.com on Saturday.
Each team is allowed to sign a maximum of two practice-squad players with no more than two accrued NFL seasons. Moody is one of those exceptions for the Seahawks. He appeared in 20 games in his two NFL seasons.

Moody, 25, was the biggest surprise among the 49ers’ cuts to 53 players last Saturday. After starting the first two exhibition games while Michael Wilhoite was out of action with a calf strain, Moody appeared to be establishing himself as a top backup and core special-teams player.
However, the 49ers decided to keep first-year player Shayne Skov as the team’s No. 3 inside linebacker behind NaVorro Bowman and Wilhoite. Nick Bellore was retained for his play on special teams.
The 49ers selected Moody in the sixth round of the 2013 draft.
The Seahawks have four former 49ers on their 53-man roster: wide receivers Ricardo Lockette and B.J. Daniels (the 49ers drafted him as a quarterback in 2013), and defensive linemen Demarcus Dobbs and Will Tukuafu.
