Linebacker Lance Laury to be unrestricted free agent

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Linebacker Lance Laury's agent confirmed he has not been tendered a qualifying offer, and is going to be headed toward the open market as an unrestricted free agent. Laury was a big-hitting special-teams player, elected captain of that unit.

The Seahawks have committed more than $20 million in salary-cap space toward its starting three linebackers, and D.D. Lewis and Will Herring filled in for injuries at linebacker.

Laury was the Seahawks' only player who was scheduled to be a restricted free agent. Here's a list of the Seahawks who are scheduled to be unrestricted free agents, according to the NFL Players Association:

C.FryeM.MorrisB.EngramR.WillisW.Heller R.BernardD.D.Lewis 
 L.WeaverK.RobinsonF.Womack  H.GreenL.Laury 

The list of prospective free agents from the league's players association also includes OL Chris Gray, LB Wesly Mallard, OL Steve McKinney and long-snapper Jeff Robinson. I'm not including them in the chart. Gray was diagnosed with a neck injury before last season and is not expected to play, Mallard was injured during training camp and has never played in a regular-season game for the Seahawks and McKinney was signed only late in the season after injuries decimated Seattle's offensive line.
