A six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver has been released ahead of this afternoon's NFL trade deadline.

Brandon Marshall, a 34-year-old wideout, has been released by the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.

"Seahawks released veteran WR Brandon Marshall, per source," he reports.

Marshall, a second-team All-Pro in 2015, had 11 catches for 136 yards and 1 touchdown so far this season.

The wide receiver had been a major factor in the Seahawks' offense early in the season, but had since been falling out of the game plan. There were reports that he had been a potential trade candidate, but he's now being released.
