Seahawks waive RB Robert Turbin, who thanks fans, team for past 3 years
RENTON, Wash. — The Seahawks waived running back Robert Turbin with an injury settlement Wednesday, which means he will become a free agent if he clears waivers Thursday.
Turbin, who suffered a high-ankle sprain in Seattle’s third preseason game, was placed on injured reserve last weekend prior to the signing of veteran running back Fred Jackson, who was let go earlier by the Buffalo Bills.
If Turbin is not signed by another team, he could eventually re-sign with Seattle, but not until six weeks beyond the terms of the injury settlement.
The Seahawks also waived cornerback Triston Wade with an injury settlement on Wednesday and made a change to their practice squad, signing cornerback Brandon Dixon to replace cornerback Justin Coleman, who was signed off the Seahawks practice squad by the New England Patriots.
Dixon, who was picked in the sixth-round of the 2014 draft by the New York Jets, appeared in 14 games for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season, totaling nine tackles and an interception.
