The Seattle Seahawks waived third-year defensive end Dexter Davis and signed cornerback Donny Lisowski on Monday, according to John P. Boyle via Twitter.
Davis battled injuries throughout his career in Seattle and apparently suffered his latest hip injury in Saturday's preseason game against the St. Louis Rams. The injury is reportedly to the hip opposite the one he had surgery on a year ago, which caused him to miss all but one game during the season.The 6-foot-1 Davis was drafted in the seventh round out of Arizona State and was fighting to be a part of the Seahawks’ pass rush in 2012. He appeared in 15 games as a rookie, but injuries plagued his sophomore campaign and he was only able to make one appearance in 2011. His chances of making an impact were slim, and he would likely have been relegated to special teams.
In a corresponding move, Lisowski was signed to take his spot on the roster. He was an undrafted free agent that impressed head coach Pete Carroll and his coaching staff enough to warrant a signing to the 90-man training camp roster -- this will be his second stint with the team.
Davis will likely get another chance with a new team, but his days in Seattle are over.
