Former Clemson OT released by Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks released former Clemson offensive tackle Isaiah Battle after they traded for their new left tackle Duane Brown from the Houston Texans.

Battle didn't give up a sack during the preseason for the Chiefs but was inactive for all seven regular season games for the Seahawks this season. He cleared waivers on Thursday and the Seahawks can bring him back as a practice player if they decide to do so.

He left Clemson early to go in the 2015 NFL supplemental draft (St. Louis Rams), was traded by the Kansas City Chiefs to the Seattle Seahawks for a 2018 conditional seventh-round pick.

The 6-foot-7 and 290-pound tackle had signed with Kansas City in the offseason.

Battle, a Brooklyn native, started 15-of-27 games played while with Clemson, posting 32 knockdowns in 1,336 snaps.
