Regina punter Jon Ryan released by, says goodbye to Seattle Seahawks

Former Seahawks punter Jon Ryan sits at the bar inside Jay Berry’s Cafe in Renton

Knowing full well that he was unlikely to make the team after suiting up for the Seattle Seahawks over the past 10 seasons, punter Jon Ryan requested his release from the team.

Ryan and Seahawks management agreed to part ways on Monday after it became clear Dickson had won the job and to give Ryan time to try to find another team before the regular season begins. Along with Ryan, the team also released kicker Jason Myers, meaning Michael Dickson and Sebastian Janikowski are the current starting duo on special teams.

"I have so many incredible memories over the past decade - from our Super Bowl 48 victory, to throwing a touchdown pass in the NFC Championship, to breaking the record of how many times a person could say "butthole" in one radio interview - it's been an fantastic ride", he wrote.

The Seahawks released their veteran punter after two strong showings by rookie and fifth round draft pick Michael Dickson in the first two preseason games. "Even though I'm leaving, I will always be a Seahawk".

The 36-year-old Ryan, a member of Seattle's 2014 Super Bowl win, is 18th on the list with an average 45.6 yards.

"You embraced a pale-skinned, red-headed Canadian with a speech impediment and made him feel like a super star", Ryan wrote.

Ryan spent two seasons with Winnipeg before debuting in the National Football League with the Green Bay Packers in 2006. I will forever be grateful for each and every one of you.

To fill the two vacant roster spots, the Seahawks brought back two players who spent time with the team during training camp, cornerback Elijah Battle and receiver Marvin Bracy.
