The Seahawks are going to release Luke Willson as the corresponding move to activating rookie TE Colby Parkinson.

As reported by Adam Schefter, the move should take place later today.

It is possible that he could go to the practice squad, however. Techno Thursdays may yet still live on.

Willson has been a long-time favorite member of the Seattle Seahawks. He’s played in Seattle every year since 2013, except for one year on the Detroit Lions.

It’s sad for the emotional connection this team has had with some of the better hair to ever grace a football field. However, it’s definitely an expected football move, as the fourth-round Parkinson needs a spot, and Willson has barely seen the field this year. He has played sparingly, but has not received a single target in the passing game.

Fans will probably remember Willson for his sneaky speed, his moon-landing conspiracy theories, and his overall goofiness.

Tight end has been a bit of a question mark all year for Seattle, with neither Greg Olsen nor Will Dissly being as active in the offense as many would have imagined this summer. Now, the business side of things has taken its toll again.
