The Seattle Seahawks signed former New England Patriots defensive tackle Sealver Siliga to a one-year deal on Monday.

According to Josina Anderson of ESPN.com, the contract is worth up to $1.4 million with $250,000 guaranteed.

Siliga had a brief stint with the Seahawks in 2013 before making his way to the Patriots. Seattle acquired Siliga from the Denver Broncos in exchange for offensive lineman John Moffitt. He never appeared in a game for the Seahawks as he moved from the active roster to the practice squad before being released.

Siliga provides the Seahawks a veteran option at nose tackle with Brandon Mebane signing with the San Diego Chargers last week. He appeared in 25 games for New England over the past three seasons with 83 tackles, 5.5 sacks and a forced fumble.

He became an unrestricted free agent when he was non-tendered by New England as a restricted free agent.

    Seattle signed Siliga after the Patriots said, “Hey, yo, Sealver! Away!”.

    Former practice member who was picked up and kept developing and now has returned……..hopefully, he makes the team’s active roster this go around.

    He was allowed to leave because Belichick couldn’t quickly repeat his name 3 times in a row.

    I really like this signing. Reasonably cheap depth on a one-year prove it deal. I think he’ll prove it and has a good shot to become a fixture on that D-line for the next 3-4 years. Should be a good run stuffer and he’s 5 years younger than Brandon Mebane.

    Can’t imagine trying to tell the cops your name after you’ve had a few.

    Hawks got a good, hardworking player. Not a star but does his job well.
