The Seattle Seahawks are expected to release yet another cornerback in the near future.
On Wednesday, stories began to surface surrounding the potential parting of ways with cornerback Richard Sherman.
In his updated post Thursday afternoon, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times included Jeremy Lane in the mix.
“Seattle is also expected to soon release cornerback Jeremy Lane, which would save $4.75 million against the cap,” Condotta noted.
Interestingly enough, Lane was the trigger for the Sherman rumors, when he tweeted what appeared to be a goodbye to the Seahawks’ star cornerback.
If the Seahawks do intend to move on from both cornerbacks, they would realize a healthy savings to the tune of almost $16 million.
Seattle attempted to deal Lane last season in a trade that eventually had to be re-worked to acquire left tackle Duane Brown from the Texans. Lane, a part of the initial bundle, failed his physical and returned to the Seahawks roster.
In 13 games played last season, Lane logged 31 combined tackles.
In January, Lane was arrested and charged with a DUI.
