Seahawks keep S Bradley McDougald with 3-year, $13M deal

Seahawks keep S Bradley McDougald with 3-year, $13M deal”

Seattle also released cornerback DeShawn Shead, making him an unrestricted free agent. "Because Shead was on the physically unable to perform list for most of the season, however, the league ruled that his contract tolled, meaning the Seahawks could have kept him under the terms of the deal he signed last offseason coming off of a serious knee injury".

The team has agreed to a three-year deal with versatile safety Bradley McDougald, one of the team's 16 unrestricted free agents.

Shead would have made $1.05 million in 2018 with the Seahawks.

Shead tore his ACL in Seattle's playoff loss to the Falcons in 2017 and only played in two games past year.

Another day, another Seahawks is player out the door. John had already informed DeShawn that his contract was expiring after this year, and the Seattle Seahawks are just living up to their word. "'That means we are living up to our word and we're going to release him, otherwise his contract would be required to toll'".

Shead was an original member of the Legion of Boom along with Sherman.

The 27-year-old joined the team in 2012 as an undrafted free agent.

That he would be re-signed had been widely anticipated as likely after McDougald started nine games for Seattle last season, including the last seven at strong safety in place of the injured Kam Chancellor.

With Chancellor's football future in jeopardy because of a career-threatening neck injury, the Seahawks have approached Shead about possibly playing strong safety next season. "We'll see what happens. I have not talked directly to him about that, but we have mentioned it to him".

After missing out on Richard Sherman, the Detroit Lions are interested in another former Seattle cornerback.

Seahawks S Bradley McDougald had four passes defended and 45 tackles in 2017.
