NFL Cuts: Seahawks Part Ways With 2011 Fourth Round Pick Kris Durham

The Seattle Seahawks begin their flurry of final roster cuts by announcing the release of wide receiver Kris Durham, according to Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times.

Durham, a 2011 fourth-round draft pick out of Georgia, spent most of his rookie year on injured reserve with a shoulder injury and only had three receptions on the season. O'Neil also reported that it "appears" Durham is still banged up as well and could miss up to two or three weeks.

Durham has always had durability issues but he still remains an interesting deep threat option with his 6'6" frame and above-average straight-line speed. Yet without much college production despite playing across from A.J. Green, it's highly questionable if any other teams will actually be interested in claiming him off the waivers.

Durham joins defensive lineman E.J. Wilson as the second fourth-round pick to be cut by Pete Carroll in his first two seasons as coach.
