The Seattle Seahawks released a hard-working, but injury-plagued defensive end on Monday, and used the vacant spot on the 90-man roster to give a Seattle native a second chance to make the roster.

The Seahawks announced that they had waived/injured Dexter Davis. A seventh round pick by the Seattle in the 2010 draft out of Arizona State, Davis showed flashes of being a talented pass rusher and special teams player, but could not overcome nagging injuries that kept him off the field.

Davis played in Seattle’s two preseason games, collecting one assisted tackle against Tennessee. However, head coach Pete Carroll said that Davis had been bothered by a hip issue that limited his practice time.

Davis, 25, spent all but one game on the injured reserve list last year with a different hip injury. But in his rookie season in 2010, the 6-1, 244-pounder played in 15 games, totaling eight tackles and a sack, along with six tackles and a fumble recovery on special teams.

Seattle used the vacant roster spot to re-sign cornerback Donny Lisowski, whom the team released on Aug. 7 to make room for receiver Terrell Owens. The O’Dea High of Seattle and University of Montana product earned a spot on the 90-man roster after impressing Carroll during the team’s rookie minicamp in May.

    Damn this qb jam, how I hate to see this fate, it hurts Flynns motor to go so slow.
    Damn this qb jam, time I get home my supper’ll be cold, damn this qb jam.

    Well Flynn was the qb to start things off, but it took fifteen minutes for Wilson to go three blocks,
    Just in time for Wilson to shine to make clutch throws and to draw the line, Damn this qb jam, how I hate to see this fate, it hurts Flynns motor to go so slow.
    Damn this traffic jam, time I get home my supper’ll be cold, damn this traffic jam.

    Now Flynn almost had a heart attack, looking in his rear view mirror,
    he saw Wilson in the next car back, looking in the rear view mirror,
    about to have a heart attack, he said,
    damn this qb jam, how I hate to throw the ball late, it hurts my motor to go so slow.
    Damn this qb jam, time I get home my supper’ll be cold, damn this traffic jam.

    Now when it’s time to choose a starter and send the other one packing I don’t want no coffin, I thought about it all too often.
    Just strap him in behind the wheel and bury him with my automobile.
    Damn this qb jam, how I hate to see this fate, it hurts Flynns motor to go so slow.
    Damn this traffic jam, time I get home my supper’ll be cold, damn this traffic jam. Damn.

    Now I used to think that I was cool but Wilson came around and made me his fool.

  6. You’re right M&C, they have a couple of injuries there… this gives Wagner the starting spot for us, I believe….

  7. MattandCindy says:
