Hawks release LB Buchanon, sign TE Marshall and DE Mayowa

The Seattle Seahawks announced this afternoon that they released linebacker Ramon Buchanon, and signed tight end Victor Marshall and defensive end Benson Mayowa.

Marshall and Mayowa recently attended the team’s rookie minicamp as tryout players.

Marshall is a local product out of Juanita High School in Kirkland. He caught 40 passes in 2009 while at Simon Fraser University, and had 10 receptions in 2010 for the University of British Columbia.

At 6-4 and 235 pounds, Marshall ran a 4.66 40-yard time and posted a 32-inch vertical jump at the NFL regional scouting combine in Los Angeles in January.

Mayowa played in 45 career games at Idaho, collecting 67 tackles (47 solo), 11.0 sacks, 11 forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries during his four-year career for the Vandals.

At 6-3 and 236 pounds, Mayowa also was one of the top testers at the NFL regional combine at the team’s facility in March. He ran the 40 in 4.65 seconds and had a 38-inch vertical jump.

Buchanon was signed on May 10 after agreeing to terms after the NFL Draft on April 27.
