Seahawks release long snapper Pittman

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

The Seahawks released Bryan Pittman on Friday after the veteran long snapper suffered a hand injury this offseason in a non-football injury. That explains why Seattle signed veteran snapper Kevin Houser on Thursday. I'm not sure if Pittman is a candidate to return upon healing, but Houser, formerly of the Saints, is an established player at the position.

Update: Danny O'Neil spent at least part of his Friday night reading a long snapping blog. Looks like Pittman might need about four weeks to recover. Thank you, Danny.
