Hawks Release T. Schmitt, Dizer

by: Mike Parker

Eric Williams has reported that the Hawks have cut LS Tyler Schmitt and CB DeMichael Dizer.

Schmitt's unfortunate story with the Hawks has ended before it really even had a chance to begin. His back issue, which put him on injured reserve last year, apparently never healed enough to put him back into NFL shape. Dizer went down with a torn ACL during the team's scrimmage at Qwest last year and was basically dead weight on the depth chart after the team brought Ken Lucas back.

The Hawks have two remaining long snappers: Ryan Senser, formerly of Ohio; and Sean Griffin, formerly of Michigan. Griffin is in camp on a tryout basis.
