Seahawks cut Isaiah Battle

The Seahawks waived offensive tackle Isaiah Battle to make room for new left tackle Duane Brown. Battle did not play in his seven games with the team.

Battle entered the league as a fifth-round supplemental pick of the Rams in 2015. Seattle obtained him in a trade with the Chiefs on Sept. 2, giving up a conditional 2018 seventh-round choice.

Cornerback Jeremy Lane will rejoin the team Thursday, coach Pete Carroll said. Lane was part of the Seahawks’ trade with Houston for Brown, but he failed his physical and is returning to Seattle.

“We are lucky we are getting him back,” Carroll said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “We are better the way this turned out.”

    The Texans made out on this deal. A 2nd and a 3rd for a hold-out cancer they wanted to get rid of anyway

    Yeah and all the Seahawks got was a Pro Bowler at their biggest position of need.

  2. I will bet that John Schneider will get a better player with that fifth round pick than the Texans will with the third round pick.

    Getting that 5th while giving up the 3rd is nice when you have a great late-round gm. What round did Richard Sherman get drafted in?

    The only negative is Lanes contract and if any of it is guaranteed next year. They will have to keep trying to deal him.

  3. Who cares if Lane walks for “free.” He had the opportunity to play with one of the best defenses in the NFL for years running – Lane simply didn’t measure up, and was beat out by rookies. That’s a plus for Seattle.

  4. Let’s not be hating on Jeremy guys , lest we forget that Superbowl and the injuries he incurred . Not to mention what happened after he went down . Yes , his contact is a problem , and Griffin is younger and cheaper. And probably a better outside corner . But Lane is going to make plays for us before it’s over . If Coleman or Sherm or Griffin get hurt , he’s a capable starter . Deshean Shead is still a ways off I believe , and they were going to have to add a corner after losing Lane anyway . Much better to have our own guy back who already knows the defense ..

    Go Hawks !!
