Nate Boyer's story is well documented. A former Green Beret, who walked onto the Texas Longhorns' team as a long snapper, then signed with the Seahawks in May after going undrafted.

Per FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, the club has released the 34-year-old long snapper to clear a roster spot for a skill player.

Reports indicate the team is set to sign former Kansas State quarterback Jake Waters due to Tavaris Jackson's injury.

Waters will reunite with college teammate Tyler Lockett.
