O’Brien Schofield says he has re-signed with Seahawks

The Seahawks nearly lost pass rusher O’Brien Schofield in the first week of free agency. Now, according to his Twitter account, the linebacker/defensive end is staying in Seattle.

Schofield, who joined the Seahawks after being released by Arizona last summer, agreed to a two-year deal with the New York Giants early in free agency, but that deal feel through due to a failed physical. Presumably Schofield, who had agreed to a two-year, $8 million deal with the Giants, will be making the veteran minimum or something close to it.

Schofield, 27, played sparingly last season once Bruce Irvin returned from suspension, but was on the field for 29 percent of Seattle’s defensive snaps in Super Bowl XLVIII. With Chris Clemons gone having been released as a cap casualty, O’Brien could find a role in the pass-rush rotation depending on how things shake out in training camp and on who the Seahawks might add in the draft.
