The arrival of Percy Harvin in Seattle has made Leon Washington expendable.
The Seahawks plan to cut Washington, PFT’s Curtis Crabtree has confirmed. The 30-year-old Washington, who has been with the Seahawks for three seasons, said goodbye on Twitter Tuesday:

Last season Washington averaged 29.0 yards on kickoff returns and 8.7 yards on punt returns. He was also a bit player on the Seahawks’ offense, running 23 times for 83 yards and catching four passes for 31 yards.
Although there was talk that the Seahawks would trade Washington, it appears that they couldn’t find any takers. Washington will now become an unrestricted free agent.
