The Seahawks didn't tender Madden a contract for 2019 on Wednesday, making him an unrestricted free agent, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.
Madden rushed three times for three yards across 14 games with the Seahawks last season, instead seeing most of his action as a lead blocker. The 25-year-old sat out Seattle's wild-card playoff loss against the Cowboys due to a hamstring injury but should be fully healthy as he hits the open market.
Madden (hamstring) was ruled out for Saturday's wild-card game at Dallas.
Madden was listed as doubtful with the hamstring issue, so his absence was to be expected. The Seahawks will go without a true fullback Saturday, but could utilize tight ends Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson as blockers out of the backfield, if necessary.
Madden (hamstring) is doubtful for Saturday's wild-card game against the Cowboys, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Madden is nursing a hamstring injury and appears on track to sit out Seattle's playoff opener. If the fullback is unable to suit up, tight ends Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson could see increased usage as blockers.
Madden (chest) is inactive for Monday's game against the Vikings.
Despite practicing in full on Friday, Madden will miss his second straight game with a sternum injury. The fullback is not a stat producer on offense, as he has only three rushes and two catches all season, but the Seahawks could use tight ends Nick Vannett and Ed Dickson to fill Madden's role as a blocker.
Madden appeared to be clear of the chest injury after practicing fully Friday, but was limited Saturday to earn the questionable tag. The 25-year-old still appears on track to play Monday given he still practiced in some capacity, but remains in danger of missing his second straight game.
