The Seahawks couldn’t afford defensive tackle Tony McDaniel. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers can.
Per a league source, McDaniel has signed a one-year deal with the Bucs, eight days after being cut by Seattle in the wake of quarterback Russell Wilson and linebacker Bobby Wagner going from six-figure guys to eight-figure tycoons.
McDaniel can make up to $2.5 million, which was the amount of his base salary in Seattle.
McDaniel appeared in 32 regular-season games and six postseason games with the Seahawks over the last two years, starting 34 times. He’ll compete for playing time across from Gerald McCoy, whose presence should make it easier for McDaniel to create some havoc.
