Wide receiver Terrell Owens was released by the Seahawks.
The 38-year-old came up with his first two receptions of the preseason Friday night at Kansas City, but tweeted Sunday morning: "I'm no longer a Seahawk. I THANK the organization 4 the opportunity, I'm truly blessed beyond belief. My FAITH is intact & will NOT waiver."
The Seahawks also signed Braylon Edwards early in training camp as they sought a big veteran receiver, and it was believed the team would only keep one on the final roster. Owens didn't play in the first preseason game and then dropped a pass in the end zone in the second before reeling in an impressive 40-yard catch at Kansas City.
Owens was signed Aug. 6 after having not played in the NFL since 2010.
Owens appeared to be popular among teammates, including safety Early Thomas, who grew up in Texas watching T.O. play for the Dallas Cowboys.
"He's been making great plays in practice, and it's good to see him translate that to the game," Thomas said after the Chiefs game. "I know he has a lot of people watching him and criticizing him. So it's just great for him to get his first catch out of the way so there won't be so much pressure on him."
Owens was released two days later.
NFL teams have until 4 p.m. Monday to reduce their rosters to 75 players.
