Seahawks To Release Jahri Evans

The Seahawks will release guard Jahri Evans, reports Mike Garafolo of (Twitter link). Evans inked a one-year deal with just $80K in guarantees last month, so moving on from him won’t be difficult for Seattle from a financial standpoint.


Despite his successful 10-year career in New Orleans, where he started in all 153 of his appearances and earned four first-team All-Pro nods, Evans garnered minimal interest after the Saints released him in February. Evans only logged 11 appearances last year as a result of arthroscopic knee surgery, though his performance during an abbreviated campaign earned him plaudits from Pro Football Focus. Nevertheless, the 33-year-old didn’t do enough this summer to carve out a role in Seattle, which appears poised to start Mark Glowinski and first-round pick German Ifedi at the two guard positions.

Evans is the second prominent veteran the Seahawks will move on from this weekend, joining defensive tackle Sealver Siliga. The Seahawks reached an injury settlement with Siliga earlier Friday.
