SEATTLE - The Seahawks just lost two of their most iconic players.
According to an article on the Seahawks' website, the team parted ways with Kam Chancellor and Doug Baldwin on Thursday due to failed physical designations.
Basically what that means is that both players have injuries that will continue to hinder their play in future seasons, so the team is letting them go.
According to the release,
"The move was an expected one in the case of Chancellor, who spent all of the 2018 season on the reserve/physically unable to perform list because of a neck injury sustained in 2017. Baldwin, who joined the team as an undrafted rookie in 2011 and went on to become one of the best receivers in franchise history, battled numerous injuries throughout the 2018 season, and had multiple surgeries this offseason."
The team thanked the players for everything that they have done in a Twitter post Thursday afternoon:
Chancellor and Baldwin have been with the team since 2010 and 2011 respectively and have both had storied careers.
