Renton, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Seattle Seahawks waived offensive tackle Garrett Scott with the non-football illness designation, the team announced Friday.

Scott was unable to pass his physical with the Seahawks due to a rare heart condition.

"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 Seattle general manager John Schneider. "We think highly of Garrett as a person and as a football player. The team is committed to supporting Garrett in the months to come and will continue to help him determine his next steps."

Scott, who was the first of Seattle's two sixth-round draft choices in this year's draft, signed his rookie contract on Thursday.

He started 35 of 41 games in his career at Marshall, and was voted to the All- Conference USA second-team after his senior season.
