The Seattle Seahawks have announced Tuesday that wide receiver Charly Martin has been released.
Martin had only four catches for 42 yards this season. He primarily played on special teams. With a spot open on the roster in mind, note that cornerback Walter Thurmond has been back in practice the last two weeks after being on the PUP list. Thurmond broke his left leg last October, and once again during rehab earlier this year. The Seahawks have until Monday to decide if they will fill their spot with the rebounding cornerback.
In other Seattle Seahawks news, the team has also released receiver Lavasier Tuniei from the practice squad after being added just last week.

Three seasons into his five-year contract Pete Carroll is not living up to expectations. While many fans might be quick to point out he has won a playoff game against the then defending Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints, the reality was it was done with a losing record and not a realistic marker of success. Carroll can argue he is building a team and that takes time, an argument...
Earlier today, the Seahawks released wide receiver Charly Martin. It's presumed that the move was made in order to make room for cornerback Walter Thurmond, but Thurmond still hasn't been officially activated off of the physically unable to play list.
As much as I like the idea of having Thurmond available again, I'm a bit torn about cutting Martin. He isn'...
Home sweet home
The Seattle Seahawks are finally back in the win column, after a big win at home against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
This marks the start of a weaker second half of the season, and a chance for the Seahawks to make their move up the standings.
Read more about this here.
With the win on Sunday, the Seahawks are once again over the .500 mark, and are making head...
Seahawks halfback Marshawn Lynch didn't practice Wednesday due to a wrist issue.Fantasy Spin:Lynch has turned in three straight 100-yard games and is on pace for a career-high 1,566 yards. The running back has played through back pain all season but the wrist injury is new. We'll have more updates as the week progresses.
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch set the standard for what is known as "beast mode".What it means is that a runner is running with such ferocity and power, that the very Earth trembles beneath it every time they carry the ball.I chose those words on purpose, because for me the first time I saw Lynch go "beast mode" was in a Wild Card playoff game following...
[Note: This article was supposed to go up late last week, but due to other concerns it had to go unfinished until now. But while the subject matter is a bit past tense, if nothing else I figured it’d serve as a nice frame of reference when I take a look at the game tape for the Vikings game.]
The Seahawks’ pass coverage against the Lions was ugly, and looking at it on...
Marcus Trufant has played in a Super Bowl and a Pro Bowl, and is now in his 10th season with his hometown team.
Yet for all those experiences, one of the most special moments in his football career with the Seattle Seahawks will come this weekend when he takes the field against his younger brother Isaiah of the New York Jets, and after youngest brother Desmond, a senior at Washington...
The tough part is done
Starting with this past weeks matchup with the Minnesota Vikings, the Seattle Seahawks have officially gotten into the weak part of their schedule.
Of course with three conference games remaining, and the away game at Soldier Field, nothing is a gimme.
The Seahawks have been scoring in droves the past two weeks, and next week’s game against the New York...
I want to take you back to 1 minute and 45 seconds in to Seattle's game against Minnesota at CenturyLink Field on Sunday. The Vikings had won the toss and elected to receive, giving the Seahawks' defense the perfect opportunity to flex its muscles having been worn down and battered in road losses in San Francisco and Detroit over the previous two weeks.
The home team had...
3rd Down’s Weighing Them Down
The boiling point for the third down troubles the Seattle Seahawks have had all season came during the Detroit Lions game-winning drive in the week 8 loss.
Three times during that drive, the Hawks’ usually dominant defense had the Lions in a third-and-long situation, and three times, the Lions converted.
The two times they didn’t convert on third...
Seven games remain for the Seattle Seahawks to make their run in the NFC. They’re 5-4 on the year, and they’re coming off a solid ten-point victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Currently second place in the NFC West, the Seahawks can make a push toward the postseason with three divisional opponents left on their schedule.
These are the five ways they...
