Seahawks release ex-UW quarterback Keith Price

The Seattle Seahawks’ relationship with former University of Washington star quarterback Keith Price was brief.

Seattle cut Price on Monday among four roster moves.

Along with Price, defensive end Kenneth Boatright was released.

The Seahawks signed veteran defensive tackle Kevin Williams and Demitrius Bronson, a bulky running back who started his college career at Washington before transferring to Eastern Washington in 2011.

Price was invited to Seattle’s rookie minicamp this year after the Seahawks signed him as an undrafted free agent. He performed well during the minicamp before seeing his opportunities evaporate during organized team activities. Price was one of five quarterbacks on the roster.

Williams, who played 11 years with the Minnesota Vikings, signed a one-year deal to join the Seahawks. Williams has been named to six Pro Bowls, but he last went after the 2010 season.

Bronson, a Kentwood High School product, was an all-Big Sky Conference honorable mention in 2012 as a short-yardage specialist for the Eagles. He finished with 600 career rushing yards and 14 touchdowns, along with eight receptions for 51 yards. He started 10 of 29 games played.

The Seahawks signed Boatright as an undrafted free agent in 2013.
