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

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.

In addition to McDaniel, a source confirmed the team has also signed wide receiver Taylor Price. The signing was first reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

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.

  1. Taylor Price to replace Golden Tate now that Tate has departed to Detroit.

    Still hoping the Hawks will get Kelvin Benjamin.

  2. Odell Beckham Jr. would be a better replacement for Tate since he can return punts as well. Unlikely he will be there at 32. Tony is a good re-sign. Taylor Price may never see the field. Seems like he was signed just to make sure Schneider’s pen was still working before they inked McDaniel.

  3. I agree with the posts regarding Taylor Price… not a replacement exactly more than a fall-back plan.

  4. I don’t even know how you can call Price a fall-back plan. Five receptions for 80 yards in 3 years? With two teams? I can only surmise that Schneider lost a bet or something, or maybe he owes Price’s family some dough….
