This is an update to the news of Gary Jennings being waived by the Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday (original article below). The team rescinded the move on Jennings before his release became official on Thursday, and instead waived Bryan Mone.

Original Article

After three weeks of NFL Regular Season football, the Seahawks parted way with Gary Jennings, a fourth round draft pick this year.

Jennings was hampered by injuries that limited or kept him from participating in rookie minicamp and training camp. He never quite got up to speed because of it.

He didn’t have time to build an on-field rapport with Russell Wilson and had to play catchup on learning the playbook.

He was a player who I thought might be in jeopardy of being cut at the end of the Preseason due to not being able to take advantage of opportunities in the exhibitions.

He made the cut, but was a healthy scratch for the first three games.

Another receiver, David Moore, returned from injury this past week. That made seven receivers on the active roster, leaving Jennings expendable.

Seattle could bring him back to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
