Six Released from Hawks Roster
EVERETT - The Everett Hawks have announced that the team made its first round of cuts last night, releasing six players from the training camp roster. Hawks veteran WR/DB Milton Myers is the most familiar name on the list of cuts, as he led the Hawks in receiving yards in 2006 and ranked second on the club in receptions and touchdowns.
"Milton had a conflict with his job and he just felt it was time for him to move on," said Hawks Head Coach Cedric Walker. "He's at that point in his career where he wants to make sure his family is well taken care of. He knows there's life after football and everything has to come to an end at some time. We definitely appreciate everything he's done for the Everett Hawks organization."
AFL veteran DS Art Smith, OL/DL Sione Taumepeau, WR Calvin Pierre, WR/LB Darnell Crowder and OL/DL Jesus Lepe were also among the players released by the Hawks Monday night.
The Hawks now have 20 players on their training camp roster, but are exploring player options to upgrade the roster in all areas. One of the more pressing needs the team has is on the offensive line, a need that Coach Walker hopes will be addressed by the end of this week.
