RENTON, Wash. – The Seattle Seahawks have officially announced the signing of free agent defensive tackle Tony McDaniel and the re-signing of restricted free agent Clinton McDonald.
Seattle had tendered a one-year qualifying offer to McDonald, who chose to sign and return as Seattle's backup nose tackle.
McDaniel played in 54 games with Miami since going to the Dolphins in 2009 via a trade with Jacksonville. McDaniel was mostly a reserve with the Dolphins, starting just two games.
The defensive line was a priority for the Seahawks this offseason. McDaniel is the third free agent defensive lineman to sign with Seattle in the last month, joining defensive end Cliff Avril and defensive tackle Michael Bennett.
