SEAHAWKS SLICE WISTROM
Adam Schefter of the NFL Network reports that the Seattle Seahawks have cut defensive end Grant Wistrom, only days after signing defensive end Patrick Kerney.

The move means that Kerney and Bryce Fisher will enter the season as the starting defensive ends.

Wistrom received in three years ago a grossly puffed up deal to join the Seahawks, which included $14 million in guaranteed money. The move will be processed as a June 2 cut, so that the cap acceleration will be spread over two years.

WISTROM DONE?

The talk in league circles in the immediate wake of the release of defensive end Grant Wistrom by the Seahawks is that Wistrom is done.

Physically, the belief is that he's shot. In fact, there are concerns that he would not be able to pass a physical. There also are concerns regarding whether Wistrom even has the desire to play.

With that said, Wistrom started in all 18 regular-season and playoff games last season.

Wistrom, a nine-year veteran, had 11.5 sacks in three seasons with the Seahawks. And he received $14 million in guaranteed money.

Hey, in some cities, that's worth another $12 million up front.

Hey, in some cities, that's worth another $12 million up front.winstrom was a horrible reach and signing at the time. pretty much a waste of available cap space. and to prove that they didnt learn anything from their mistakes, the seahawks make the exact same move by signing patrick kerney, for yet another inflated, overvalued multi-million dollar deal, that kerney will never be able to play out. i guess some team just love the prospects of salary cap hell

At least he has a career as a future sexual predator to fall back on now.
