Seattle Releases Former Starting Center Patrick Lewis

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks have released former starting center Patrick Lewis as part of roster moves Tuesday to reach the mandatory 75-man limit.

The Seahawks also released running back Zac Brooks, a seventh-round pick in this year’s draft who was slowed by a hamstring injury and never got the needed carries to stand out.

Lewis started nine games for Seattle last year and was largely credited for stabilizing an offensive line that was shaky early in the season. But with the move of Justin Britt to center and the solid play of backup Joey Hunt in the preseason, Lewis became expendable.

Seattle also waived offensive lineman Kristjan Sokoli, and linebackers Pete Robertson and Quayshawn Nealy.

Additionally, the Seahawks waived/injured running back George Farmer, wide receiver Kevin Smith, defensive end Josh Shirley and defensive back Trovon Reed.
