Greg Scruggs tweets that he's been re-signed for 2015

Greg Scruggs took to his twitter/instagram page to announce that the Seahawks had re-signed him for the 2015 season.

Teams rarely take chances, let alone take chances after a double knee injury. Thankful to the @seahawks for the opportunity to sign on another year and be the best I can be to help the team win. #GoHawks

Scruggs was set to become a restricted free agent once the new league-year hit, so Seattle avoids putting a restricted free agent tender on him to retain him (which they wouldn't have used, likely). Scruggs was a 7th round pick in 2012 but has only seen limited action because of a few injuries that kept him sidelined for the last two seasons. He's another athletic, inside-outside defensive lineman that should factor into the competition on the line this year. He's listed at 6'3, 310 but I think he is more like 285 after dropping some weight last year to re-gain some explosiveness.
