Seahawks release Charly Martin

The Seattle Seahawks announced Tuesday they have released wide receiver Charly Martin.

Martin has served primarily on special teams for the Seahawks this season and has recorded just four catches for 42 yards. The move gives Seattle an open spot on their 53-man roster that has yet to be filled.

Cornerback Walter Thurmond has been practicing for the last two weeks after missing the first six weeks on the physically unable to perform list. Seattle has until next Monday to make a decision on whether to put Thurmond on the active roster. Thurmond broke his left leg last October and again during the rehab process early this year. The release of Martin could be the precursor to finally getting Thurmond back on the field.

In addition, the Seahawks released receiver Lavasier Tuniei from the practice squad. He had been added last week.

  1. Look at the arms on this “wide receiver”….This is a poster child for the wonder of PEDs….Remember what Steve Largent looked like? Like a human man…Not the HULK….

  2. Ahh, that sucks, was hoping the Walla Walla product could stay on. He looked good when he got chances with the ball. At least he can always say he beat T.O. for a roster spot.

  3. I didn’t understand how we kept Martin. Sure he could play special teams but he is slow, doesn’t run good routes. He did catch a few preseason balls that was about it. Thurmond coming back would help on 3rd downs, Trufant all though he was a fan favorite has been getting beat regularly since his back started failing on him. They might need to sign a linebacker if KJ Wright and isn’t ready to go next week which a big hit because I didn’t like the linebackers played with Morgan in his place.

  4. Hopefully this means Braylon will be good to go now for our WR depth and this means Thurmond is good to go. Need to see him taking snaps from Trufant gradually and then full-time…no disrespect to Marcus, but he keeps getting beat by the small, shifty slot receivers…

  5. Given the problems we’ve had with WR this year, I see this as a huge vote of confidence for Jermaine Kearse.
