Seahawks release long snapper, sign another

KIRKLAND, Wash. - The Seattle Seahawks have their third long snapper of the season.

The Seahawks this afternoon released long snapper Boone Stutz and replaced him with NFL veteran Jeff Robinson.

Robinson was with the St. Louis Rams last season and has played in 181 NFL games. He was originally a fourth-round choice of the Denver Broncos in the 1993 NFL draft as a defensive end. He moved to St. Louis in 1999.

Stutz signed with the Seahawks on Oct. 9, replacing Derek Rackley, and snapped in eight games. His short stay in Seattle was marred by errant long snaps.

In last Sunday's game against Arizona at Qwest Field, another off-target snap by Stutz led to an aborted extra-point attempt in the fourth quarter.

The Seahawks are at Carolina on Sunday.
