Seahawks pass rusher Richard Sherman: ‘This isn’t an excuse’

Russell Wilson is not the first Seahawk to make the connection between the Seahawks and the “Deflategate” investigation.

That’s the message that Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider have been delivering throughout the Seahawks’ offseason.

Carroll told reporters on Tuesday that Wilson is “not an excuse” for the team’s decision to release quarterback Russell Wilson, who is facing criminal charges.

In October, Seattle general manager Dave Gettleman, who was also Seahawks general manager when Wilson was suspended, told reporters that he was “concerned” about the NFL’s investigation. “

It was not an easy decision for us, but we believe we made the right one.”

“I’m concerned about the outcome of the investigation,” Gettlemans statement read.

“That’s what’s important for us.”

The Seahawks, who have a bye week before hosting the Broncos on Sunday, will be without their top pass rusher for the entire preseason.

Wilson, 30, is set to start the season on the injured reserve.
