The Seattle Seahawks waived rookie tackle Garrett Scott Friday due to a rare heart condition, just a day after he was signed to a contract.

"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 Seahawks General Manager John Schneider in a statement. "The team is committed to supporting Garrett in the months to come and will continue to help him determine his next steps."

Scott was drafted in the 6th Round out of Marshall.
