Seahawks will move on from DeShawn Shead

Seahawks to release DeShawn Shead, hope to re-sign him

Curtis Crabtree of KJR and PFT reports that cornerback Deshawn Shead will be released on Monday.

Rumors of Shead's potential release began to surface Saturday after his agent, Cameron Foster, spoke with local reporters at the University of Washington's Pro Day.

"They called me and they said, 'Just giving you a heads up that we're going to release DeShawn on Monday, but that doesn't mean we don't want him, '" Foster told ESPN's Brady Henderson.

"So kudos to the Seahawks for doing the right thing".

McDougald was signed to a one-year, $1.8 million contract by Seattle last season after having played since 2013 with Tampa Bay.

Summit to hold egg hunt on March 24
Dogs must be leashed during the event, but owners afterward may let their dogs run off leash in the 3-acre, fenced-in Bark Park. The bunny will be spreading 10,000 eggs filled with candy and toys across The Green to be hunted.

That's due to a clause in the NFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement that states that players not activated off the Physically Unable to Perform List until after the sixth game of the season in the final year of their contract must have their contracts tolled (Shead was not activated until December 23). The Seahawks opted to release Shead and allow him to test free agency instead. He already has a visit lined up with the Detroit Lions, according to Foster.

Shead was an original member of the Legion of Boom along with Sherman. He spent six seasons in Seattle, starting 15 regular-season games in 2016.

"He's such a versatile player, he's played both for us", coach Pete Carroll said last week at the scouting combine.

Thomas' future is also somewhat uncertain as the team tries to work out a long-term extension with him, and singing McDougald gives Seattle a player it knows can fill in at either spot.

Cornerback has suddenly become a position of need for Seattle following Sherman's release and that of Lane, which had been expected for some time. He has recorded 154 tackles, two interceptions, four forced fumbles and 24 pass deflections in his career.
