The release of high salary players began today when the Seahawks cut ties with two of their longtime vets.

Seattle announced the release of defensive end Red Bryant and wide receiver Sidney Rice today via Twitter.

General Manger John Schneider commented on the releases in a pair of tweets.

 

 

The moves are anticipated to save the team $13 million in salary cap space this season.

Bryant was a 2008 draft choice of the Seahawks, and developed into a specialist at stopping the running game. Well respected as a team leader, he could possibly come back to Seattle at a lower salary, although he could make more money on the free agent market.

Rice was acquired as a free agent in 2011, signing a five-year $41 million deal. Rice struggled with injuries throughout his time with Seattle.
