The Seahawks have signed Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril, but they aren’t done looking at additions to their defensive line.
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that defensive tackle Tony McDaniel will be visiting the team on Thursday. If he signs, McDaniel would be the first addition to the interior of the team’s defensive line.
McDaniel battled injuries for much of the 2012 season, recording just 11 tackles and 0.5 sacks as a member of the Dolphins’ rotation up front. He’d been much more effective in previous years for the Dolphins, picking up 6.5 sacks in a reserve role over the previous three seasons. If he does wind up in Seattle, the Seahawks will likely be banking on better health leading to a return to that kind of performance.
The Seahawks have lost Jason Jones and don’t seem to have much interest in bringing Alan Branch back to the team, which makes it easy to see how McDaniel would slot into the depth chart up front in Seattle.
