Seahawks add LB O’Brien Schofield

The Seahawks acquired another pass rusher Saturday, claiming linebacker O’Brien Schofield off of waivers after he was released by Arizona, which just signed veteran John Abraham.

If healthy, the 6-3, 242-pound Schofield, could help bolster the Seahawks’ pass rush as either an outside linebacker or “Leo” defensive end. He had four sacks last season as a starter before suffering a season-ending injury nine games into the season.

Schofield, who is cousins with former Seahawks receiver Bobby Engram, was a fourth-round pick in 2010 after seeing his draft stock fall following a torn ACL in the senior bowl. He returned midway through his rookie season, played all of 2011, then was a starter last year before suffering the ankle injury.

T Jake Bscherer was released to make room on the roster.
