Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images(RENTON, Wash.) — Wide Receiver Mike Williams was released by the Seattle Seahawks Friday.

“We would like to thank Mike for his contributions over the past two seasons, and we wish him well in the future,” Seahawks general manager John Schneider said in a team statement.

The 6-foot-5 receiver out of USC was picked 10th in the 2005 NFL Draft, but struggled with his conditioning. He had his career resurrected two seasons ago when he was reunited with current Seahawks and former USC head coach Pete Carroll.

During his time in Seattle, Williams had 83 receptions in 26 games and won the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year in 2010.
