Pro Football Talk is reporting that according to a source, the Seattle Seahawks intend to release defensive tackle Jaye Howard.
If true, it's somewhat of a surprising move, considering how many defensive linemen are dinged up heading into the first week of the regular season.
A fourth round selection by the Seahawks last year, Howard was a disappointment in his rookie season. However, Howard worked hard during the offseason, and appeared to be having a good training camp.
Also, I've been told that the Seahawks have not officially released veteran cornerback Antoine Winfield, although it remains a distinct possibility. So a decision on Winfield still needs to be made.
