Seahawks cut WR Early Doucet

Well, it got late early for Early Doucet in Seattle.

The Seahawks just announced they have cut Doucet, who had signed as a free agent on Friday with the team seeking some receiving depth following the loss of Percy Harvin.

Doucet, though, practiced only once, on Sunday, while dealing with some undefined injuries.

Coach Pete Carroll was asked about Doucet after practice on Wednesday and said: “He’s been banged  up and he’s got some issues that we are still working with and we’ve got to figure them out.’’

The Seahawks apparently got it figured out well enough to cut him following their Wednesday practice.

Doucet, who had played the  last five years with the Arizona Cardinals, had signed a one-year contract with a base salary of $715,000, the veteran minimum for a player in their fourth through sixth seasons.

Seattle did not immediately announce an addition to the roster, so the Seahawks currently  have 89 players on their roster — 90 are allowed until the first cutdown day on Aug. 27 when rosters must be trimmed to 75.

UPDATE — According to the NFL transaction notice, Doucet was released with a designation of “Failure to Disclose Physical Condition.” “So that may further explain Carroll’s comments about Doucet earlier today.
