Posted Jun 2, 2006

All around the NFL, teams are releasing players as they begin to prepare themselves for the 2006 season. Two WR's and one DT comprise the list of players the Seattle Seahawks released earlier this afternoon.

The Seattle Seahawks announced the release of WR Alex Bannister, DT Garrett McIntyre and WR Jerheme Urban earlier this afternoon.

Bannister, A fifth-round pick in 2001, made the 2003 Pro Bowl as a special team stand-out but has broken his collarbone three times in the past two years and never evolved into a receiving threat.

Urban demonstrated some skills in the limited times he saw action with the Seahawks but was made expendable due to continuous injury.

McIntyre signed with the Seahawks in early May as an undrafted rookie. His status pertaining to his release is unknown.
