The Seattle Seahawks continue to remake their roster.
On Thursday, the Seattle Times reported that the Seahawks are expected to release cornerbacks Jeremy Lane and Richard Sherman.
Releasing Sherman would save the Seahawks $11 million in salary cap room for 2018, and cutting ties with Lane would save them $4.75 million in cap space.
If a trade cannot be arranged in the next few days, Sherman and Lane are likely to be released.
The Seahawks traded Lane to the Houston Texans as part of the Duane Brown deal in October 2017, but Lane was returned to Seattle when he failed the physical.
Lane, 27, was arrested in January for DUI.
Lane started six of the 13 games in which he played in 2017, and was a starter in nine of the Seahawks' 16 regular-season games in 2016. Lane was a starter in one playoff game in 2016, and one in 2015.
He is signed for two more years with non-guaranteed salaries of $6 million each season.
