With defensive end Michael Bennett due to become a free agent and determined to get a contract far more lucrative than the one-year, $5 million deal he signed last year, the Seahawks plan to create some cap space by parting ways with another defensive end.

Alex Marvez of FOX Sports reports that the Seahawks are expected to cut Red Bryant. The cap space would be then used to help keep Bennett.

Bryant has a cap number of $8.5 million, coming from a $4.5 million base salary, a $3 million roster bonus, and $1 million in signing bonus allocation. Cutting him without the post-June 1 designation would result in a cap charge of $3 million, creating $5.5 million in immediate cap space. Cutting him with the post-June 1 designation would require the Seahawks to carry the $8.5 million until June 1, at which time $7.5 million in cap space would be created. The remaining $2 million in dead money would hit the cap in 2015.

Bryant, a fourth-round pick in 2008, started 15 regular-season games and two playoff games in 2013. He had only 1.5 sacks for the entire

I've always thought Red Bryant was one of the most important players on their front line. He could not be moved and stuffed everything. Without him their Nascar package could see fewer reps as teams find holes on first and second downs
who?
So Gore can run on first downs again!
They had a great luxury of stockpiling defensive ends/pass rushers and it worked. They won't be able to afford all of them moving forward. The "legion of boom" gets all the press, but their success was largely due to the defensive line.

I think Clemons is another guy who won't be back.

The league sanctioned holding doesn't hurt either.

Well, good ol' Fisher should put a smack down on the holding during competition committee discussions this off season.
They're gonna sign his brother, Blue Bryant
Seattle's historic defense was built on a bunch of 4th and 5th rounders.. and people are talking about how we should package a ton of picks to move up

Seattle's "historic" defense was built on PED's and holding.

Their actually cutting him because his name made him a traitor. Golden Tate might not be resigned for the same reason...
