Seahawks release CB Sidney Jones following trade deadline

The former Washington Husky should be a starter this year but injuries opened up opportunities for others during training camp

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks fired cornerback Sidney Jones Tuesday just after the NFL trade deadline.

Jones started in 11 games last season and played well for the Seahawks on those occasions. He was expected to be a starter this year, but injuries opened up opportunities for others during training camp and rookies Tariq Woolen and Michael Jackson established themselves as starters for the Seahawks.

Seattle expects him to get back promising sophomore cornerback Tre Brown in the next few weeks, and Jones’ chances of seeing the field would be even more limited.

Jones was a second-round pick by Philadelphia in 2017. He also spent a season in Jacksonville.

Seattle also released wide receiver JJ Arcega-Whiteside from the practice team and signed wide receiver Laquon Treadwell to the practice team. Arcega-Whiteside was acquired from Philadelphia during training camp but did not appear in a game for Seattle.

Treadwell was a first-round pick by Minnesota in 2016. He has 104 catches and five touchdowns in 70 career games.
