The Seahawks will release guard Jahri Evans, reports Mike Garafolo of NFL.com (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.
