The Seahawks are signing defensive lineman Dre’Mont Jones to a three-year, $51.53 million contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports. Jones will get $23.5 million in the first year and $35.02 million over two seasons.

Jones was the 23rd-best free agent on PFT’s top 100.

The Broncos had hoped to keep Jones, but he got a better offer elsewhere.

Denver drafted Jones in the third round in 2019, and he’s developed into a solid NFL starter.

Jones, 26, made 47 tackles, 6.5 sacks and 10 quarterback hits in 13 games last season.

In his career, he has 133 tackles, 22 sacks, 38 quarterback hits, an interception and two forced fumbles.

  1. I feel like the Bears really dropped the ball at this price. Maybe I’m wrong.

  2. Good move by the Seahawks. One of the 2 worst position areas last year, D-Line needs a retool. Now, go resign Poona and spend the #5 on the best available D-End. QB of the future can wait.

  3. Guy that plays when he wants to. Wants money but production doesnt match. Bye Bye, good luck in Seattle. Money player. Rather have Zack

  4. Where were the Bears on this deal? Jones a much higher need than Edmunds. And cheaper too…..

  5. The Seahawks rarely spend on top tier FA’s and Seahawk fans are saying thank you to Geno Smith for signing his team friendly deal. Geno and his reps got with the team and both sides made a commitment. Geno wanted the team to have room to build around him and improve the team as a whole. The John Schneider and Pete Carroll committed to Geno that they would do just that, and this signing is a clear sign of both sides being true to their word. Players across the league continue to see the Seattle organization as one that is true to their word.
