Renton, Wash. - The Seattle Seahawks have waived tackle Garrett Scott with the non-football illness designation, the team announced today.
Scott was unable to pass his physical with the Seahawks due to a rare heart condition.
"After undergoing an extensive physical with our medical staff last week, Garrett's examination revealed a rare heart condition that will prevent him from any on-field participation in the near future," said Executive VP and General Manager John Schneider. "We think highly of Garrett as a person and as a football player. The team is committed to supporting Garrett in the months to come and will continue to help him determine his next steps."
Scott, who signed his rookie contract yesterday, was Seattle's first of two sixth-round draft choices (199th overall) in this month's NFL Draft.
He played in 41 games with 35 starts for Marshall, and was voted to the All-Conference USA second-team after his senior season.
