Seahawks re-sign DT Tony McDaniel, add WR Price

The Seahawks have re-signed defensive tackle Tony McDaniel to a two-year contract with a max value of $6.3 million, according to a league source.

McDaniel signed with Seattle as a free agent before last season and played at defensive tackle in the Seahawks’ deep rotation along the line. But McDaniel could also be a possible replacement for defensive end Red Bryant, who was charged with stopping the run on the edge. McDaniel played a similar in Miami before coming to Seattle asa free agent, and his length and size is comparable to Bryant (Bryant is 6-4, 343 while McDaniel is 6-7, 305).

McDaniel started 15 games for the Seahawks last year. He recorded two sacks and 30 tackles. McDaniel was Pro Football Focus’ 15th-best defensive tackle last year overall and the fourth-best against the run. Stopping the run was Seattle’s top demand from Bryant and likely would be the same for McDaniel if he slides into that role next year.

The Seahawks re-sign defensive linemen Michael Bennett, but they cut Bryant and defensive end Chris and lost defensive tackle Clinton McDonald to free agency (McDonald signed a four-year deal worth $12 million with the Buccaneers).

ESPN’s Adam Schefter was the first to report the signing.

The Seahawks also signed free-agent wide receiver Taylor Price, according to a league source. Price hasn’t played in the last two years because of injuries, but he was drafted in the third round by the Patriots in 2010, and at 26 he could be able to capture the potential teams saw in him coming out of Ohio before injuries hit.
