Seahawks Release Nick Bellore

The Seahawks released special teams captain Nick Bellore on Monday.


The Seahawks released veteran fullback/linebacker and special teams standout Nick Bellore on Monday, parting ways with a three-time team captain on special teams.

Bellore, who came into the league as an undrafted free agent in 2011, has put together a 13-year NFL career as a special teams standout, while also playing both linebacker and fullback at different times in his career. Bellore signed with the Seahawks in 2019, and over five seasons in Seattle he was a two-time Pro-Bowl selection as a special teams player (2020 and 2023) while appearing in 79 games. Bellore was voted a special teams captain or co-captain each of the past three seasons, providing leadership and playmaking in that phase of the game.

Bellore also brought levity to the team in just about everything he did, be it joking with teammates in the locker room or turning press conferences into comedy routines or hosting his "Between Two Bellores" interviews with teammates.
