The Seattle Seahawks announced Tuesday afternoon that they've released quarterback Trevone Boykin.

Trevone Boykin, who starred at TCU and landed on the Seattle Seahawks after the 2016 NFL Draft, has been released by the franchise. Boykin was released just hours after WFAA in Dallas, Texas, released a report that includes a domestic violence allegation from his girlfriend, Sabrika Bailey.

Bailey told Kevin Reece of WFAA that Boykin choked her out, breaking both sides of her jaw. She says she came to in a puddle of blood and after being dragged to a bathtub, was taken to the hospital. Bailey says that Boykin fled the hospital after the two were questioned independently by staff members.

The Seahawks did not elaborate on their decision - they simply tweeted the news.

The Mansfield Police are reporting investigating the accusations. Boykin has not yet been arrested.

Boykin, who went undrafted, has been a backup to Russell Wilson since 2016. At TCU, he was the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year in 2012.

The Seahawks now have just two quarterbacks on their roster - Wilson and Austin Davis. They may now be in the market for a backup.
