Seattle releases veteran OL J'Marcus Webb

RENTON, Wash. (AP) The Seattle Seahawks have released veteran offensive lineman J'Marcus Webb after he was bypassed by younger players as options along Seattle's offensive line.

Seattle announced the move on Tuesday. The Seahawks cut loose one of their biggest offseason acquisitions in free agency after it became clear he didn't have a future with Seattle.

Webb started the first three games of the season at right guard when rookie Germain Ifedi was injured. Webb has played sparingly since and was inactive for the first time last Sunday against Philadelphia. Rookie Rees Odhiambo was the backup option at guard and tackle for the Seahawks and played briefly at left tackle against the Eagles when George Fant left with an injured shoulder.

Webb signed a two-year deal worth up to $5.75 million with Seattle in the offseason.
