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.
With the Seahawks activating rookie TE Colby Parkinson, and having extra TEs on their roster, Seattle will be releasing TE Luke Willson today to get down to four TEs, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 3, 2020
#Seahawks are going to release popular tight end Luke Willson, first reported by @AdamSchefter— Gregg Bell (@gbellseattle) November 3, 2020
No surprise. Willson has barely been playing in a stacked TE room. And now rookie Colby Parkinson is back off the non-football-injury list and playing for the first time
It is possible that he could go to the practice squad, however. Techno Thursdays may yet still live on.
Am hearing it's a definite consideration that Luke Willson could stay on the practice squad. Everyone has eligibility for the PS this year and would keep the popular Willson around and ready if needed later.— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) November 3, 2020
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.
