Everyone knew the Seahawks had to make moves to spark their dull offense. Seattle has been nothing short of disappointing this season, ranking second to last in points scored.
Unfortunately, the change meant the release of a fan favorite.
The Seahawks have decided to let go fullback Will Tukuafu.

Just as quickly as Tukuafu came back into the lives of Seahawks' fans, he's now back on the free agent market.
The fullback was released during the preseason, but was shortly signed back to the Seahawks after. He was a member of the 2014 Super Bowl team, and spent two years as the lead fullback in Seattle.
It isn't just fans that will miss the hard-nosed play of the fullback.
RB Thomas Rawls is excited to have FB Will Tukuafu blocking for him again: "he breaks like 3 or 4 facemasks a game." https://t.co/flLBW2QJBh— All Seahawks (@AllSeahawks) September 15, 2016
Rawls claimed he was thrilled when the seven-year pro was re-signed by Seattle. There was no one he'd rather run behind than Tukuafu. Now, he'll have to find a new fullback to pave the way for him.
