RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Doug Baldwin appears to be another step closer to retirement after being released by the Seattle Seahawks because of a failed physical.
The veteran wide receiver was one of two stars from Seattle’s consecutive NFC championship teams to have their contracts terminated Thursday.
Safety Kam Chancellor, who did not play last season due to a neck injury suffered in November 2017, was also released due to a failed physical. Chancellor remained on Seattle’s roster last season for salary purposes and was on the physically unable to perform list but was not expected to play again following the injury.
Baldwin’s failed physical is the latest sign his career could be over. Baldwin had surgery in the offseason to repair shoulder and groin injuries and he also had a knee procedure.
