Seahawks Release DE Jachai Polite From Practice Squad


The Seattle Seahawks have released DE Jachai Polite from their practice squad on Monday, according to Field Yates

Here’s the Seahawks updated practice squad:

  1. TE Jacob Hollister
  2. WR Terry Wright
  3. G Jordan Roos
  4. G Kahlil McKenzie
  5. G/C Kyle Fuller 
  6. S Ryan Neal
  7. DB Parry Nickerson
  8. DB Adrian Colbert
  9. OT Elijah Nkansah

Polite, 21, was selected with the No. 68 overall pick in the third round by the Jets. He signed a four-year, $4,218,191 contract that includes a $1,118,194 signing bonus with the Jets. 

However, New York waived Polite coming out of the preseason and he later signed on to the Seahawks’ practice squad. 

Polite struggled during the pre-draft process, which led to him falling to the third round, even though he was considered to be one of the top edge rusher prospects last year.

During his three-year college career at Florida, Polite recorded 78 tackles, 15 sacks, eight forced fumbles, and four pass defenses.
