After watching several members of their Super Bowl winning defense sign deals elsewhere, the Seattle Seahawks managed a deal to keep one of their unrestricted free agents in town.
A source confirmed to PFT the Seahawks have reached an agreement with defensive tackle Tony McDaniel. It’s a two-year deal with a maximum value of $6.3 million. The deal was first reported by Adam Schefter of ESPN.com.
Seattle signed McDaniel to a one-year contract last season but gave him the chance to start along the defensive line. McDaniel started 15 of 16 games for the Seahawks and racked up 53 tackles and two sacks on the year.
McDaniel played primarily on early downs as a part of Seattle’s bigger front along with Brandon Mebane and Red Bryant. With Bryant, Clinton McDonald and Chris Clemons all moving on, keeping McDaniel helps Seattle keep some continuity along the defensive line.
Price was a third-round pick of the New England Patriots out of Ohio University in 2010. However, he has failed to become a productive player so far in his career.
Has has just five catches for 80 yards in six games played with the Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars. He has spent the last two seasons on injured reserve after suffering injuries in training camp each year with Jacksonville.
