Schofield signs with Giants

As the free agency signing period beings today, the Seahawks have seen another of their players signed away, as ProFootballTalk is reporting that linebacker O’Brien Schofield is signing with the Giants. Here are details:

Schofield was signed during camp after being cut by the Cardinals, and started two of the first three games when Bruce Irvin was serving a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

Seattle has also lost DT Clinton McDonald to Tampa Bay.

Early indications are that Seattle may not sign anyone today.
