In 2011 Red played in 16 games, had 2 interceptions, 20 tackles, 1 TD, 1 sack, and a handful of blocked kicks becoming one of the Seahawks best players on defense.
He was a must sign.
NFL Networks Michael Lombardi also reports that Seattle keeps Red Bryant, one of the best defensive lineman on the market.
This is a huge signing for Pete Carroll and John Schneider. Its always important to keep your own guys when building a team in the mold you want.
Carroll altered the career path of Big Red Bryant by moving him from defensive tackle to defensive end in his 4-3 schem and made him a run blocker.
Red had a huge year last year for Seattle.
One of our highlights of the season last year was Our when Red a 323lb lineman grabbed himself a interception and did the high step into the endzone for the touchdown early in the 3rd quarter.
Red is a guy coveted around the league by a lot of teams. New England and New Orleans were rumored to want him.
This deal will average over 7 million dollars per year over 5 seasons.
He's a great strong side end, he can handle the run, and he's all ours Seahawks fans.
