Free agent defensive lineman Tony McDaniel will visit with the Seattle Seahawks, reports Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times.
the 28-year-old played the past four seasons in Miami after being acquired via a trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The visit assumingly is the 'Hawks attempt at creating some depth on the line, and MCDaniel, who played in 11 games last season, looks to be a viable addition. O'Neil writes:
'It’s surprising in one respect: There were indications the Seahawks weren’t pursuing more open-market additions after their agreements with pass rushers Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett.
It’s not surprising in another respect: Seattle doesn’t have an agreement with Alan Branch, who has started the last two years at tackle in Seattle and is an unrestricted free agent. Now, there hasn’t been much activity in general on Branch. There was a report in the Florida Times-Union the Jags could be interested in Branch at the right price. That makes sense given the fact that Seattle’s former defensive coordinator Gus Bradley is now the Jags head coach and Todd Wash — a former Seahawks assistant — is on the staff. But so far? Crickets.'
