Former Kentwood High School football star Demitrius Bronson was among the first round of cuts from the Seattle Seahawks.

Bronson, a running back who played at the University of Washington and Eastern Washington, rushed for 45 yards on 11 carries in three games during the preseason. Bronson dropped what would have likely been the game-winning screen pass in the opening exhibition game against Denver.

Head coach Pete Carroll still praised the undrafted free agent following the game, calling Bronson a natural and decisive runner who catches the ball well.

Bronson can now sign with any of the 32 NFL teams and is still eligible for the Seahawks practice squad. Each team can sign up to 10 players onto its practice squad beginning Aug. 31.
