Dwight Freeney, Seahawks Agree to Contract

Dwight Freeney, Seahawks Agree to Contract”

The Seattle Seahawks' star-studded defense looks to be adding a future Hall-of-Fame talent.

The 14-year veteran recorded three sacks in 15 games for the Atlanta Falcons last season during their run to the Super Bowl. Get the app and get the game.

The Seahawks had not filled Avril's spot on the 53-man roster and Freeney will fill it when he officially signs his contract.

Dwight Freeney officially has a new National Football League home.

"The 6'1", 268 pound defensive end was the 11th overall pick of the 2002 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts and spent 11 seasons with the Horseshoe, where he was a Super Bowl Champion, 3x First-Team All-Pro, 1x 2nd-Team All-Pro, 7x Pro Bowler, AFC Defensive Player of the Year, NFL Sacks leader, and member of the NFL 2000's All-Decade Team. The Falcons routinely rested Freeney on Wednesdays throughout the season to help preserve his body.

He finished with three sacks, four tackles for losses, and 10 quarterback hits in 15 games, with one start. He started two of three postseason games and registered a sack, a tackle for a loss and three quarterback hits.

He has 122 1/2 career sacks, which is second among active players behind Julius Peppers (150) and 18th all time. Dwight Freeney visited the team on Monday night and took a physical, and judging by a Tuesday-night Freeney tweet, he looks to be set to join the Seahawks.
