SEATTLE, Wash. – Chad Wheeler, an offensive tackle who played for the Seattle Seahawks in 2020, reportedly won’t be brought back by the team after his arrest for suspected domestic violence last weekend.

Wheeler, 27, is accused of assaulting his girlfriend at his residence in Kent on Saturday. He was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. He was in King County Jail and appeared in King County District Court on Monday, where his bail was set at $400,000. He has since been released on bond.

Wheeler is not under contract for 2021, and Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network tweeted Wednesday that a source told him the Seahawks will not bring him back. He added that the NFL has said it is reviewing the alleged incident under its personal conduct policy,

The Seahawks also released a statement through their PR team’s Twitter account on Wednesday, condemning the alleged act of domestic violence.

The case against Wheeler includes startling details and an alleged photograph of his girlfriend after the alleged incident. According to Condotta’s story, Kent Police responded to a call Saturday of a woman who was locked into a bathroom after a physical fight with her boyfriend. Per the Kent Police report, Wheeler strangled the victim, who lost consciousness, and after she regained consciousness Wheeler said, “Wow you’re alive?”

Wheeler appeared in five games for the Seahawks in 2020. He previously played 27 games for the New York Giants in 2017 and 2018.
