Seattle waives wide receiver Braylon Edwards

The Seattle Seahawks have cut wide receiver Braylon Edwards

after a season during which he had little impact on the offense and

placed starting left guard James Carpenter on the season-ending

reserve/non-football illness list.

Seattle made the moves Tuesday afternoon. Edwards was waived

with an injury distinction, but no specific injury was cited. The

Seahawks now have just five healthy wide receivers.

Edwards had just eight catches for 74 yards and one touchdown in

10 games.

Carpenter returned from a serious knee injury last season and

started seven games for the Seahawks at left guard. But he left

early in Sunday’s win over Chicago after experiencing what Pete

Carroll called a sharp pain in his surgically repaired knee.

Seattle signed offensive lineman Rishaw Johnson from the practice
