The Seattle Seahawks have waived sixth-round offensive tackle Garrett Scott with a non-football illness designation due to a rare heart condition.
The Seahawks have already signed Scott to a contract.
Scott was an All-Conference USA second-team selection
"After undergoing an extensive physical with our medical staff last week, Garrett's examination revealed a rare heart condition that will prevent him from any on-field participation in the near future," Seahawks general manager John Schneider said in a statement. "We think highly of Garrett as a person and as a football player. The team is committed to supporting Garrett in the months to come and will continue to help him determine his next steps."
