As was expected, Chris Maragos, a backup safety and special teams maven for the Seahawks the last three years, has found a new home. Maragos tweeted the news himself earlier:

Philly.com reports he signed a three-year deal worth $4 million, with $1 million guaranteed.
That’s the sort of payoff Maragos was hoping to get after having taken a paycut prior to the season in 2013 to stay with the Seahawks, something I detailed in this story in January.
Maragos becomes the third Seattle unrestricted free agent to sign elsewhere, joining DT Clinton McDonald (Tampa Bay) and LB O’Brien Schofield (Giants).
