Bradley McDougald chooses a one-year deal with Seahawks

Another safety has parlayed interest from the Browns into a deal with another team.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Bucs free agent Bradley McDougald has agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Seahawks.

McDougald visited the Seahawks but left without a deal, and visited the Browns this week.

While he’d have had a path to a starting job there, he apparently chose to be depth in Seattle behind Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas.

McDougald may have opportunities at offseason reps while Thomas comes back from a broken leg and Chancellor’s rehabbing from ankle surgery, but he’s a depth signing there.

The Browns also became leverage when Tony Jefferson was looking for a new contract, with the Cardinals free agent eventually going to Baltimore.

    No confidence in himself, just wants to hide out and get paid…

    Probably no chance at a ring in Cleveland.

    Who says the Browns offered him a job?

    Or maybe the Browns passed as everyone realized he’s just a backup.

    No chance of ring in Cleveland… might as well add Seahawks to that list too.

    Or maybe he wants to see what it’s like to win a division and go to the playoffs. Maybe learn something from two of the best safeties in the game. It’s a one year deal.

    These are the type of signings that seem like back page news. McDougald can also be part of the dime package as he has played some cb and can pick up a big receiver.

    Let’s not forget about special teams. Secondary depth and special teams play are paramount in building a SB team as injuries can derail hopes. See Hawks vs Falcons w out Thomas.

    In 2 years he’ll be out of the league and 3rd string on a CFL team.

    He is the next big thing at his position. The bucs made a HUGE mistake letting him get away, just like they did with Michael Bennett.

    Gee, it seems like he would’ve been the perfect fit for that Harvard MONEYBALL mentality.

    Who cares about winning, just the bottom line, Baby!

    You vastly overrate the Browns in this situation…the visit and the signing are not causal nor even related.

    Hmm, I was at the Bucs butt kicking of the Seahawks last year. Looks to me that both teams are headed in different directions.

    With the Seahawks being Division Champs and going 1 -1 in the playoffs while the Buc’s went to Key Largo… I mean, the fishing is pretty good but playoff good?
