Two months after it first appeared he had a job for next season, Seahawks outside linebacker O’Brien Schofield apparently has one now.

Schofield tweeted the news of his return this afternoon, saying “I’m coming back home one more year,” with the obligatory #12thman hashtag.

The pass-rusher was close to a two-year deal with the Giants at the outset of free agency, but a knee problem scuttled that deal. He later worked out for the Titans, and passed a physical.

The Seahawks claimed him off waivers after three years with the Cardinals, and though he played a limited role for them last year, were willing to bring him back.
