RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks have released veteran offensive lineman J’Marcus Webb after he was bypassed by younger players as options along Seattle’s offensive line.

Earlier this year, the Seahawks signed Webb to a 2-year deal worth up to $5.75 million, with $2.45 million fully guaranteed. He only started three games.

Seattle announced the move on Tuesday. The Seahawks cut loose one of their biggest offseason acquisitions in free agency after it became clear he didn’t have a future with Seattle.

Webb started the first three games of the season at right guard when rookie Germain Ifedi was injured. Webb has played sparingly since and was inactive for the first time last Sunday against Philadelphia. Rookie Rees Odhiambo was the backup option at guard and tackle for the Seahawks and played briefly at left tackle against the Eagles when George Fant left with an injured shoulder.

NFL Insider Adam Caplan of tweeted Tuesday that the Seahawks signed RB Zac Brooks to their practice squad Tuesday.

The Seahawks had not immediately confirmed that move. The Clemson running back was drafted in the 7th round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He was waived by the Seahawks in August, signed to the practice squad in September, and then waived again in October.
