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't the most talented receiver, but he has a nice feel for the slot position and he's a game blocker downfield. That said, he's been inactive most games, and in the games he was active he only caught three of the six passes that targeted him (it should be noted that his total still puts him ahead of tight end Evan Moore, who has zero catches to show for his five targets).
Besides, with Doug Baldwin coming back from his high ankle sprain earlier than expected, wide receiver isn't as great a position of need as cornerback, and that goes double if Braylon Edwards' knee has healed enough for hi...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
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...
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...
Seattle released receiver Charly Martin on Tuesday, the second consecutive week the Seahawks made a roster move. Martin made the team in training camp, a testament to how well he played in August. He has been active in four games this season, playing the slot specialist. He caught four passes for 42 yards.
Martin was essentially Doug Baldwin's backup as the slot specialist...

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...
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...

After having two weeks to mull over their loss to the Miami Dolphins, the New York Jets will have a tough task in facing the Seattle Seahawks, in Seattle. The Seahawks are 4-0 at home and their rookie quarterback, Russell Wilson, has played like a seasoned veteran in their building...
[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...

According to the league guidelines, a team has 21 days after a player on the Physically...
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...

At this point in the season, the Seattle Seahawks offense is a lot further along then I expected them to be.
Sunday they needed it to win.
I would still expect them to have ups and downs during the remainder of...
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...

Presence of Sherm Only Adds to Rep
Last year the Seattle Seahawks sent three out of the four members of the “Legion of Boom” to the Pro Bowl proving to the league they had one of the up and coming secondary’s in the league.
This year they have done one better adding the fourth and final member into an elite category.
At the mid way point of the season ESPN Insider...
Adrian Peterson is coming off a fantastic week (182 yards and 2 td’s) against the Seattle Seahawks, who have one of the best defenses in the league. You may have looked past Peterson last week because of a surprising game by rookie Doug Martin, who had a 251-yard performance. However, Adrian Peterson is having a big year and has had a big couple of games. He had 450 yards and...
