NFL Cuts: Seahawks Release CB Coye Francies, Trim Roster To 75

The Seattle Seahawks are down to 75 players on their roster after cutting cornerback Coye Francies Monday.

Francies, who has eight games of NFL experience from 2009 and 2010 and was a former sixth-round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns out of San Jose State, finished the 2011 season on the Seattle practice squad. But the Seahawks had to get down to 75 players by Monday.

The Seahawks have six cornerbacks left on the active roster plus PUP-listed Walter Thurmond. That group of six includes veterans Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner and Marcus Trufant.

Seattle had already released linebacker Jameson Konz, defensive end Lazarius Levingston, defensive back Roy Lewis, tight end Cameron Morrah, wide receivers Terrell Owens and Phil Bates, offensive tackles Edawn Coughman and Alex Barron, cornerbacks Donny Lisowski and Ron Parker, running back Tyrell Sutton and offensive guard Deuce Lutui.

The Seahawks wrap up their preseason schedule on Thursday against the Oakland Raiders at 7 p.m., after which they'll make the final round of roster cuts.
