Seahawks lose CB Deshawn Shead via free agency to the Lions

Seahawks lose CB Deshawn Shead via free agency to the Lions”

Former Seattle Seahawks cornerback DeShawn Shead was scheduled to visit with the San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday after meeting with the Detroit Lions on Tuesday. But Seattle General Manager John Schneider already had assured Shead he would become a free agent, so the Seahawks did right by the player in allowing him to test the market.

Mingo, the sixth overall pick of the Browns in 2013 out of LSU, played previous year with the Colts with two sacks in six starts in 16 games.

Mingo, listed at 6-4, 239, was reported to have received a two-year contract worth $6.8 million overall and $3.2 million guaranteed with a $2.2 million signing bonus and base salaries of $1 million and $3 million as well as other incentives. Although they have had a slew of visits from free agent veterans, specifically running backs, the Lions have steered away from the bigger splash signings.

A member of the now-defunct Legion of Boom, the 28-year old Shead had a breakout season in 2016 recording 81 total tackles, 14 passes defended and one interception while starting in 15 games for Seattle.

The Seahawks have lost another cornerback.

Shead returned to the Hawks last season on a one-year deal, reportedly worth one million dollars. Coming out of Portland State, he was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Seahawks, then barely played for the franchise his first few seasons in the league. Shead tore his ACL in January 2017 during a playoff game with Atlanta.
