Two-time Pro Bowler Earl Thomas isn’t happy with the release of Leon Washington.
Percy Harvin’s arrival in Seattle indicated there would have to be some subsequent roster moves. On Tuesday, kick-return specialist Leon Washington let it be known via Twitter that he isn’t part of the Seahawks’ future plans.
Marshawn Lynch, Max Unger, Russell Okung, Earl Thomas and Leon Washington were all deserving choices, while Richard Sherman and Chris Clemons were left out.
Jason Jones is on IR with torn knee cartilage, but cornerbacks Marcus Trufant and Walter Thurmond could return from hamstring injuries. Leading receiver Sidney Rice also is a game-time call with a sore knee.
The Seattle Seahawks put up perhaps its most dominating performance in franchise history, rushing for a season-high 284 yards while creating eight turnovers and setting a team record for points.
Russell Wilson and Leon Washington were spectacular at Miami, but the defense gave up 17 points in the fourth quarter as the Seahawks fell to 1-5 on the road.
The Seattle Seahawks have lost a couple they could have won and won a couple they could have lost, rookie QB Russell Wilson has taken great strides, and the defense and running game have been every bit as strong as fans thought they would be.
Among the other Seattle players having great seasons are punter Jon Ryan, safety Kam Chancellor and center Max Unger. Richard Sherman and Brandon Mebane are not getting the same recognition despite their own stellar seasons.
The New York Jets are a team with no identity, just a sideshow, and the Seattle Seahawks should dominate on their way to a 5-0 home record as they head into their bye.
Sunday, Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll faces the team he once coached, the New York Jets, which is now quarterbacked by his former quarterback at USC, Mark Sanchez. Also, running back Leon Washington goes against the team that traded him to Seattle.
