The Seattle Seahawks have released center Chris White and signed wide receiver Chas Gessner, the team announced this morning.
Gessner originally entered the league as an undrafted rookie free agent on May 2, 2003 with the New England Patriots and has spent time with the Berlin Thunder of NFL Europe (2004), the New York Jets (2004) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2006-07). He made his NFL debut last season with Tampa Bay vs. Arizona (11/4).
A two-time Walter Payton Award finalist as the nation's top Division I-AA player, Gessner also was a standout performer on Brown's lacrosse team.
White originally signed with Seattle as a free agent on January 15, 2008.
