Seahawks release Charly Martin

What move was made: Seattle released receiver Charly Martin on Tuesday, the second consecutive week the Seahawks made a roster move. Martin made the team in training camp, a testament to how well he played in August. He has been active in four games this season, playing the slot specialist. He caught four passes for 42 yards.

Martin was essentially Doug Baldwin's backup as the slot specialist, and Baldwin returned last week from a high ankle sprain.

What the move means: It points to the likelihood that Braylon Edwards will be back this week, serving as Seattle's fifth receiver. Jermaine Kearse is on the 53-man roster, primarily in a special-teams role.

It also points to the likelihood that Walter Thurmond will be activated this week. He is currently on the Physically Unabale to Perform (PUP) list, and Seattle has until Monday to activate him. Martin's departure leaves an opening on the 53-man roster.
