Seahawks cut Losman, go with 2 QBs
The Seattle Seahawks have been cutting veterans ever since the changing of the guard but wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh’s name was the only one that really jumped off the list of cuts made Saturday.
Of course, more work could be done in short order by general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll if the team moves to pick up a handful of players off the street.
But for now it was a relatively quiet day. Quarterback J.P. Losman was cut loose to leave the team with only two signal callers. Speculation is Carroll could make Matt Leinart a reclamation project, but he’s distanced himself from some former Trojans like Lawrence Jackson.
Veteran offensive tackle Ray Willis was placed on injured reserve, defensive end Nick Reed was waived/injured, and linebacker Leroy Hill is on the suspended list.
Here are the players let go: S Jamar Adams, CB Marcus Brown, C Jeff Byers, G Mitch Erickson, DT Amon Gordon, LB Tyjuan Hagler, WR Brandon Jones, WR Ruvell Martin, CB Cord Parks, LB Joe Pawelek, T Jacob Phillips, DT Quinn Pitcock, RB Louis Rankin, DE Rob Rose, T Joe Toledo, TE Nick Tow-Arnett and DE James Wyche.
