Seahawks waive Jake Curhan

The Hawks needed to create a spot on the roster for Jason Peters, and did so by waiving the former undrafted free agent Curhan.

Late Friday reports emerged that the Seattle Seahawks had signed Jason Peters to the 53 man roster, as starting right tackle Abe Lucas remains on injured reserve and is not quite ready to play. As the roster was full, the Hawks needed to make a move in order to create space for Peters, and on Saturday the team announced that they had waived third year offensive lineman Jake Curhan.

Curhan will now be subject to waivers, meaning the 31 other teams in the league will have an opportunity to put in a claim and potentially have his services at their disposal for the remainder of the season. In his third year in the NFL, Curhan is slated to be a restricted free agent after the season, which could be why the team opted to waive him rather than either McClendon Curtis or Raiqwon O'Neal, both of whom have three more years of team control remaining after the 2023 season.
