The Seattle Seahawks are releasing safety Tedric Thompson, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.

Anderson reports that the cut is a salary cap move, but that Thompson, who missed part of last season with a torn labrum, is now healthy.

Thompson, 25, had been given “permission to seek a trade,” but his market was never going to be robust. He was benched following last year’s Quandre Diggs addition.

Thompson ended up playing roughly half the snaps he received in 2018. Thompson’s experience and relative youth will give him a strong chance at cracking someone’s 53-man roster this summer.

Thompson started six games in 2019.
