Seahawks Release RB LenDale White
White was released on Friday.
“It became apparent at this time that LenDale was not ready to be a member of the Seattle Seahawks,” Seahawks GM John Schneider said. “It just did not appear to be the right fit at this point in our program. We wish LenDale all the best with his future.”
Acquired from the Tennessee Titans in a trade, White reported to the Seahawks in great shape. He was down to 220 pounds after being 250 pounds at times as a member of the Titans.
White came to the Seahawks during the third day of the NFL draft. The team also acquired defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson.
The trade reunited White with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, whom White played for at USC.
