Former Seahawk Carlson reportedly to be released by Vikings — would Seahawks be interested in a reunion?

Reports breaking today that the Vikings are set to release tight end John Carlson, who began his career with the Seahawks.

And count NFL.com among those wondering if Carlson would be a fit to return to the Seahawks if Seattle releases Zach Miller and his $5.8 million salary for next season.

Carlson played for Seattle from 2008-2011 before signing with Minnesota in the spring of 2012. As the Times reported at the time, the Seahawks wanted to keep Carlson, but wasn’t willing to pay him big money after signing Miller.

The market for Carlson is undoubtedly not as rich now, and Seattle has shown no reluctance to go after former players (such as Tarvaris Jackson).

However, as the linked stories also detail, Carlson has had at least three concussions, a key reason the Vikings are releasing him. So at this point, he’d be regarded more as a likely secondary option at tight end.
