The Seahawks released defensive end Kerry Hyder Jr. and linebacker Carlos Dunlap II on Friday. 


The Seahawks parted ways with a pair of players who were significant parts of their defense last season, releasing linebacker Carlos Dunlap II and defensive end Kerry Hyder Jr. on Friday.

Dunlap, who first joined the Seahawks in 2020 in a midseason trade, recorded 13.5 sacks in 25 games, including 8.5 last season. Dunlap saw his role reduced midway through last season, but came on strong late in the year, recording seven sacks in the final four games of the season.

Hyder, who signed with Seattle as a free agent last year, appeared in 15 games, starting seven, and recorded 1.5 sacks, 33 tackles, 11 quarterback hits and two fumble recoveries.
