Seahawks drop Deuce Lutui, Alex Barron, others


Terrell Owens let the cat out of the bag earlier today, disclosing on Twitter that he’d been cut.  The Seahawks have now taken to Twitter to announce the release of Owens and various other moves.

Gone are guard Deuce Lutui, tackle Alex Barron, receiver Phil Bates, tackle Edawn Coughman, cornerback Donny Lisowski, cornerback Ron Parker, and running back Tyrell Sutton.

The Seahawks also waived the following players with the “injured” designation: linebacker Jameson Konz, defensive tackle Lazarius Levingston, cornerback Roy Lewis, and tight end Cameron Morrah.  If unclaimed, each man will revert to the team’s injured reserve list.

Lutui, who played for coach Peter Carroll at USC and entered the league in 2006 as a second-round pick of the Cardinals, signed with the Seahawks in April.  Barron, a first-round pick of the Rams in 2005, arrived in May.

Lutui had been listed as the second-string right guard.  Barron was the third-team right tackle.
