The Seahawks have released wide receiver Freddie Swain, according to a report by Jeremy Fowler at ESPN.

This will be one of the least-surprising developments of the day. Swain had served as Seattle’s WR3 the last few seasons, but never really caught on and a dismal 2022 preseason ultimately cost him his job. Swain had several dropped passes en route to posting the lowest offensive grade on the team according to Pro Football Focus.

With Swain out of the picture, the competition to be the No. 3 guy behind Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf is wide open.

Swain is cut No. 7.

Teams now have exactly two hours to get down to 53 players.
