Seahawks reinstate Winston Guy to active roster

The Seattle Seahawks reinstated rookie safety Winston Guy to their active roster on Monday.

Guy was suspended for four games on Nov. 20 for a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. Guy’s agent, Greg Lamont Linton, said Guy had ingested an over-the-counter substance that contained an ingredient on the banned substances list. His suspension ended last week and the Seahawks were given a one week roster exemption for Guy to return to practice before they had to make a decision on his status.

To make room for Guy on the roster, the team released wide receiver Deon Butler.

Butler was re-signed prior to the Seahawks 50-17 win over the Buffalo Bills two weeks ago but was inactive for the game. He played sparingly on Sunday night in the Seahawks 42-13 win over the San Francisco 49ers.

Guy has been active for just two games for Seattle this season and played primarily on special teams.

    I really like Butler kid is all heart and has damn good hands, but can’t beat the press and could get put on IR by a strong wind. Somebody who needs WR help should grab him.

    I was excited for Butler’s potential coming back but the way Baldwin/Tate play and to a lesser extent Kearse. I have no clue how guys like Kris Duham, Evan Moore, Lockette are all picked up with Butler is far more polished and actually has caught some balls in the league sits on a couch. Guy is good special teams guy but he isn’t beating out Johnson

    The Seahawks are like Lance Armstrong, except they’ve never won anything.
