The Seattle Seahawks have released offensive guard Chance Warmack after one year in which he never saw the field. The move was reflected on Monday’s official NFL transactions list.

Warmack opted out of the 2020 season due to his apprehension about the COVID-19 pandemic and the effect it would have on the NFL. Several of his peers did the same, but Seattle ended the season without a single player testing positive for the virus.

Warmack’s contract would have carried over into 2021, but the release makes it obsolete. The Seahawks will need solid offensive linemen to protect Russell Wilson next season, but they only possess five picks in the 2021 draft and not much cap space, so acquiring them is easier said than done.
