The Seattle Seahawks have declined to pick up the 2015 option on offensive lineman James Carpenter.

Carpenter, a 2011 first-round pick, is expected to open training camp as the starter at left guard. The NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement dictates that teams had until Saturday to pick up fifth-year options.

Had the Seahawks picked up Carpenter’s option, Seattle would have paid Carpenter $7.438 million in 2015.
