Seahawks Release Former Green Beret Nate Boyer
RENTON, Wash. (AP) - The Seattle Seahawks released long snapper and U.S. Army veteran Nate Boyer.
Boyer was signed by Seattle as an undrafted free agent in May. He played five snaps against the Broncos on Friday night.
He was competing with incumbent Clint Gresham for the starting long snapper job. He was a long shot to make Seattle's roster as Gresham signed a new three-year contract with the team this offseason.
Boyer did tours in Afghanistan and Iraq and was a member of the Green Berets.
Boyer walked on to the football program at Texas and eventually won the starting job. He was the long snapper for the Longhorns his final three seasons.
