After one disappointing season, the Seahawks have cut their losses on 2012 fourth-round draft pick Jaye Howard.

Seattle released Howard before today’s 53-man roster deadline, a league source tells PFT.

Howard, a defensive lineman from Florida, is a 6-foot-3, 301-pounder who looks the part of a guy who should be ready to step into an NFL defense and make an immediate impact. But he played in just two games as a rookie with Seattle, and now his time there is done.

Howard is subject to waivers, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see some other team place a claim.
