SEATTLE — The Seattle Seahawks are expected to move on from starting defensive tackle Jarran Reed via either a trade or a release, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

And in another move on Thursday, defensive end Carlos Dunlap is re-signing with Seattle on a two-year deal worth $16.6 million that includes $8.5 million guaranteed, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told Schefter.

Reed signaled his apparent goodbye to the Seahawks on Thursday, writing on Twitter:

The 28-year-old Reed has one year and $8.5 million remaining on his contract, which is set to count $13.5 million against the cap. The Seahawks would save $8.5 million against the cap by trading or releasing Reed while incurring $5 million in dead money.

The Seahawks have to clear cap space to be cap compliant once the recent deals they’ve agreed to become official. They have only three picks in next month’s draft — a second-, a fourth- and a seventh-rounder — after trading a fifth-round pick to the Las Vegas Raiders for guard Gabe Jackson.
