RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- The Seattle Seahawks have cut eight players, but still must make two more moves in order to reach the league-mandated roster limit of 80 players.
Seattle made its first cuts on Monday when it released wide receiver Chris Carter, cornerback Jesse Hoffman, linebacker Neal Howey, guard Zach Hurd, wide receiver Brandon Smith, fullback Ryan Travis, defensive tackle Teryl White and receiver Patrick Williams.
The Seahawks also traded cornerback Kelly Jennings to Cincinnati for defensive tackle Clinton McDonald.
Seattle must make two more roster moves by Tuesday afternoon.
