Tuinei, an undrafted rookie out of Oregon, spent training camp with the Seahawks and was released, then joined the practice squad last week.
The decision to release Martin is likely a sign that the Seahawks are confident they will get Braylon Edwards back after the veteran receiver missed two games because of swelling in his knee. It would also seem to indicate they are happy with the play of rookie Jermaine Kearse, who was signed from the practice squad last week.
No corresponding move was announced, but the Seahawks could be freeing up a spot to add cornerback Walter Thurmond to the active roster. Thurmond, who broke his leg last season, then suffered a setback in March, has been on the Physically Unable to Perform list, but the Seahawks have to make a decision on him by Monday.
And in non-Seahawks news, this blog is going to be quiet for the rest of the week, as I'm taking some time off for my brother's wedding (how inconsiderate of him to get married during football season, right?). Until then, have a good week everybody.
