Seahawks release Gallery, lose John Carlson to Vikings

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.
