The Seattle Seahawks have parted ways with defensive end Dexter Davis after a chronic hip injury has cut short his last two seasons.

Davis was waived by the team on Tuesday after failing a physical.

Davis was a seventh round draft pick of the Seahawks in 2010 and Seattle hoped he would develop into a consistent pass rushing threat. Instead, he’s spent more time watching NFL games than playing in them. Davis appeared in 15 games his rookie season but has only been active for one game in the past two years.

A hip injury following the season opener in 2011 landed him on injured reserve. He re-injured the hip last year in training camp and was placed on injured reserve again. Davis compiled 13 tackles and one sack in three years in Seattle.
