Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Tuesday, March 27 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
The Best Value Free-Agent Signings
After the first wave of NFL free agency, Danny Kelly of The Ringer looked back and reviewed some of the best signings that flew under the radar the past few weeks. Looking at the best signings of players that could outplay the deals they received, two from Seattle made his list.
The first deal is the Seahawks' multi-year re-signing of safety Bradley McDougald following a productive first season in Seattle where he made nine starts:
*McDougald showed his value as a versatile fill-in at both safety positions for the Seahawks last year, taking Earl Thomas's place in weeks 9 and 10 and then later Kam Chancellor's spot when Seattle's starting strong safety missed the final seven games of the year to a neck injury. *
Take a look back at photos of Tom Johnson's seven NFL seasons as the defensive tackle signs a free-agent deal with the Seattle Seahawks.
The second signing was the Seahawks' addition of free agent defensive tackle Tom Johnson, who the team added last Friday:
Up front, the addition of veteran free-agent defensive tackle Tom Johnson softens the blow of losing Sheldon Richardson to the Vikings. Johnson offers upside as a rotational interior pass rusher for Seattle, coming off a season in Minnesota in which he posted 31 pressures, per PFF, tied for 12th among the league's interior defenders. He's not as dynamic as Richardson (who posted 36 pressures on 82 fewer snaps) and he's not as good against the run, but at 33 years old, Johnson gives the Seahawks some bang for their buck on a one-year deal worth up to $2.7 million.
