Seahawks Dump Veteran Wide Out Brandon Marshall

The Seahawks have released veteran receiver Brandon Marshall, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

The 34-year-old Marshall was signed as a free agent in the summer to help add depth to a young receiving corps, and he had some good moments early with seven catches for 90 yards and a touchdown in the first two games of the year.

But he had since seen his production and playing time decrease (he had a costly drop in a game against Arizona) with the emergence of second-year receiver David Moore. His playing time decreased so much that Marshall had just two snaps against the Lions in a 28-14 Seattle win Sunday in Detroit.

Marshall had just two catches for 16 yards in the last four games and just one for 11 in the last three, that coming late in the win over the Raiders in London.

Suspension on Seahawks LB Mychal Kendricks to Be Lifted, Can Return in Week 14

Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks will have his indefinite suspension lifted by the NFL and will be eligible to return to action in Week 14, a source told Adam Schefter of ESPN on Tuesday.

Kendricks was suspended after pleading guilty in September to federal insider trading charges. He is not scheduled to be sentenced until Jan. 24, when, based on federal guidelines, he could be facing 30 to 37 months in prison.

Kendricks will be eligible to practice in Week 12 before returning for the Dec. 10 game against the Vikings on Monday Night Football, a source told Schefter.

Seahawks to Honor the Late Paul Allen with a Patch on Their Uniforms

The Seahawks are honoring the late Paul Allen the rest of the regular season, starting Sunday, Herbie Teope of NFL.com reports.

Bert Kolde, who serves as vice chairman of the Seahawks and Portland Trail Blazers, announced Friday that the Seahawks will pay tribute to the team’s former owner with a patch on their jerseys bearing Allen’s initials, PGA, in front of a 12th-man flag.

“Paul will always be close to our hearts,” Kolde tweeted.

Allen passed away on Oct. 15 at the age 65 following a battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Allen, a co-founder of Microsoft with Bill Gates, served as the owner of the Trail Blazers and Seahawks, a team he purchased in 1997.

Seahawks Owner Paul Allen Passes Away at Age 65

Paul Allen, founder of Microsoft and prominent Seattle businessman and philanthropist, has died at age 65, Rachel Lerman of the Seattle Times reports.

Allen died Monday afternoon, according to his multi-faceted holding company Vulcan Inc., just two weeks after announcing he had restarted treatment for non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Allen co-founded Redmond tech giant Microsoft with childhood friend Bill Gates. After leaving the company, he turned his focus to a wide range of other business and scientific pursuits, which including founding the Allen Institute for Brain Science, and the real estate arm of Vulcan, which went on to build much of Amazon’s campus.

Allen also owned the Seattle Seahawks and the Portland Trail Blazers.

“My brother was a remarkable individual on every level,” Allen’s sister, Jody Allen, said in a statement. “While most knew Paul Allen as a technologist and philanthropist, for us he was a much loved brother and uncle, and an exceptional friend…At this time of loss and grief for us – and so many others – we are profoundly grateful for the care and concern he demonstrated every day.”

Pete Carroll Says Seahawks RB Chris Carson Will Play Sunday Despite Missing Wednesday Practice

Chris Carson didn’t practice Wednesday but Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says he expects his lead running back to play Sunday when the Seahawks host the undefeated Los Angeles Rams in a key NFC West game, Gregg Bell of the Tacoma Tribune reports.

“Yeah, he should be fine,” Carroll said before practice of Carson. “We are going to go light on him (Wednesday). He did the morning part of the work. And then (Thursday) he should be full go.”

Carson missed Wednesday’s practice with the same hip issue that had him limited in practices Wednesday, Thursday and Friday last week, then caused the starter to miss last weekend’s win at Arizona. Mike Davis went from third-string back to fill-in starter, and rushed for a career high 101 yards on 21 carries in Seattle’s 20-17 victory.

Carson hasn’t been full go since Sept. 23 when he ran 32 times, by far the most in his two NFL seasons, for 102 yards in the Seahawks’ 24-13 win over Dallas.
