(1090 The Fan) - Seahawks’ backup tight end Anthony McCoy’s injury cost him a spot on Seattle’s roster.
The team waived McCoy Tuesday, just days after it was announced his torn Achilles injury would likely sideline him for the entire 2013 campaign. The two-year veteran has already undergone surgery to repair the injury — the recovery time is at least six months.
McCoy was originally Seattle’s sixth-round draft choice (185th overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft. He played in 34 games with 14 starts, recording 31 receptions for 437 yards and three touchdowns, including career-highs in catches (18), yards (291) and touchdowns (3) last season.
The Seahawks also signed rookie tackle Jake Bscherer.
Bscherer spent three years at Wisconsin before transferring to Minnesota-Duluth for his senior season, when he was named to the All-NSIC team in his only season with the Bulldogs. He took part in Seattle’s rookie minicamp on a tryout basis from May 10-12.
