Seahawks Waive DE Dexter Davis

The Seattle Seahawks have waived-injured defensive end Dexter Davis, according to Doug Haller of the Arizona Republic. The 25-year-old has played a small role with the team over the past two seasons, but he ultimately never emerged as a key contributor.

Drafted in the seventh round of the 2010 draft out of Arizona State, Davis appeared in 15 games during his rookie season, recording seven tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery while seeing time on defense and special teams. He saw a significant decrease in his playing time last year, though, appearing in just one game.

Now, every team in the league will have the opportunity to claim Davis off waivers. If he manages to get through unclaimed, the Seahawks will have the option of placing him on injured reserve or agreeing to a settlement that allows him to hit free agency.
