After adding G/C B.J. Finney on Tuesday afternoon, the Seattle Seahawks weren’t done adding offensive linemen. With the new league year underway, the Seahawks agreed to terms with former Jets tackle Brandon Shell, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

As Schefter notes, Shell’s agreement with Seattle is for two years at an annual average of $5.5 million. While Schefter also notes Shell has seemingly swapped places with ex-Seahawk George Fant, he is coming to Seattle to replace Germain Ifedi, not Fant. Of Shell’s 40 career starts, the large majority have come at right tackle. Ifedi, who remains on the market, is almost certainly no longer in consideration for the Seahawks.

Shell is Seattle’s third outside addition of the free agency period, after Finney was signed on Tuesday and Bruce Irvin was brought back on Wednesday. While there remains some uncertainty as to where Finney will line up for the Seahawks, at $5.5 million, Shell appears certain to slide in at right tackle.
