The Seahawks have waived offensive tackle J’Marcus Webb, reports ESPN’s Adam Caplan (via Twitter). No corresponding move has been announced, although Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times believes the team will be adding a running back.
Webb joined the Seahawks this past offseason on a two-year, $6.25MM ($2.5MM guaranteed) deal. The former seventh-round pick was expected to compete for a starting gig, and the 28-year-old did end up starting three games for Seattle. However, the veteran’s role has diminished over the past few weeks, and with rookie Germain Ifedi fully healthy, the team decided to move on from their offseason addition. The Seahawks will presumably be rolling with George Fant, Joey Hunt, and Rees Odhiambo as their backup offensive lineman.
The versatile lineman does have plenty of starting experience, as the veteran has had three seasons with 16 starts. In six-plus seasons, Webb has played 80 games between the Seahawks, Raiders, Vikings, and Bears.
