The Seahawks released guard Robert Gallery after just one season, and agreed to terms with offensive lineman Paul McQuistan.

Tight end John Carlson signed a five-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings, and linebacker David Hawthorne reportedly has a visit with the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

The Seahawks are expected to host quarterback Matt Flynn on a visit on Thursday night. Chad Henne was scheduled to come to Seattle, but then signed a deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The NFL Network reports that tight end Visanthe Schiancoe is expected to meet with the Seahawks in the next few days.
