He has become a free agent immediately.
Shead gets a head start on finding his new team than the other free agents. The main group of free agents is officially able to pick their new teams beginning on Wednesday, March 14th at 4 pm.
The Seahawks initially though Shead was going to be a free agent this offseason. However, a monkey wrench was thrown into the mix.
However, after signing a one-year deal, he was on the physically unable to perform lost for much of the season.
Since he barely played this season, Shead’s contract would have rolled into the 2019 season. He suffered a torn ACL injury in the Divisional Round of the 2016 playoffs in a 36-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
He was activated off of the PUP list right before Christmas. He played in the final two games of the season.
“We will talk to him about that,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Indiana. “He’s such a versatile player, he has played both for us. We’ll see what happens. We know he can play corner and we like the way he plays at corner, but everything is open. I have not talked directly to him about that, but we have mentioned it to him.”
Shead was signed by the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2012. He has 154 tackles, 1.0 sacks, two interceptions, four forced fumbles, and 24 pass deflections.
