Report: Seahawks agree to terms with Tony McDaniel, defensive tackle

Seahawks agree to terms with Tony McDaniel
By Curtis Crabtree | ProFootballTalk.com

The Seahawks have agreed to terms with Tony McDaniel, defensive tackle from the Miami Dolphins. The news was first reported by ProFootballTalk.com.

The team won’t announce the transaction until the paperwork is finalized, but an agreement is in place for a one-year deal.

The deal comes after the Dolphins reached an agreement with Vaughn Martin, another defensive lineman the Seahawks were interested in.

McDaniel is 6 foot 7, and he has the long, basketball build Seattle has tended to favor in its defensive lineman, allowing him to not only play the defensive tackle spot next to noseguard Brandon Mebane but in a pinch, can slide outside to back-up Red Bryant as a run-stuffing defensive end.

The addition of McDaniel likely spells the end for Alan Branch, who started for Seattle the past two years. Branch is an unrestricted free agent who reportedly changed agents this week.
