In unsurprising news, the Seattle Seahawks are moving on from wide receiver Brandon Marshall, according to Adam Schefter.

The 34-year-old Marshall has just 11 catches (on 23 targets) for 136 yards and a touchdown, which he got on opening day against the Denver Broncos. He had multiple drops against the Dallas Cowboys and one against the Arizona Cardinals. It was against Arizona that the Seahawks started to use Moore in the offense more often, and his fantastic showings over the past few weeks essentially had Marshall’s future with the Seahawks on borrowed time. It’s very obvious that Marshall’s best days are behind him, and it’s not a coincidence that the Seahawks passing offense has looked better once his involvement significantly decreased.

This leaves Seattle with only four WRs on the current depth chart: Doug Baldwin, Tyler Lockett, David Moore, and Jaron Brown. It’s possible that the team could promote Keenan Reynolds from the practice squad back to the active roster, or perhaps when JD McKissic returns from injury, he’ll essentially function as WR/RB.
