Tony McDaniel re-signs with the Seahawks

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks re-signed versatile DT Tony McDaniel to a two-year deal worth a maximum of $6.3M, reports Ian Rapoport. McDaniel, 6'6, 310 pounds, manned the base-package three-technique spot in Seattle's defense last year, and was an excellent run-stopper at that spot. Per PFF's tracking, McDaniel was their third-rated run-stuffing interior defensive lineman, behind only the Jets' Damon Harrison and the Panthers' Star Lotulelei.

This signing also gives Seattle some options at the 5-technique spot if Jesse Williams and/or Greg Scruggs struggle or get injured, as McDaniel has some history on the end formerly in Miami's 3-4. Overall, he's a tough, physical and versatile defensive lineman with excellent length and athleticism. He started 15 of 16 games last year for the Hawks and was helped by the fact that Seattle runs a heavy rotation on their line. McDaniel played 528 snaps - more than Red Bryant even, but that only accounted for 50% of the Seahawks' defensive plays.
