The Seahawks released Brandon Marshall earlier this week, but it could be more of a “see you later” than a “goodbye.” Head coach Pete Carroll says that Marshall can still play at the age of 34 and he’s leaving the door open for a potential return down the road (Twitter link via Brady Henderson of ESPN.com).

Carroll says that Marshall was released because the team needed special teams help that Marshall could not really provide. As a pass-catcher, Carroll apparently likes what the veteran has to offer. Carroll’s fondness didn’t result in big numbers for the veteran, however. In six games, the multiple-time Pro Bowler had just 11 catches for 136 yards and one touchdown.
Marshall has more than enough money to live on, but he says that he is determined to continue playing. It remains to be seen whether he’ll reemerge with the Seahawks or any other team in 2018.
