The Seattle Seahawks are now officially in the thick of their offseason. NFL free agency began Tuesday, with players flying all over the country to meet with teams desperate to court them. It appears at least one player, however, didn't have to travel at all to find his desired deal.
Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network reports that the Seattle Seahawks will be re-signing defensive lineman Red Bryant. This is sure to be a big relief for the Seahawks, who will be happy to retain a key component of their defense.
ESPN.com reports that the deal will be for five years and will be worth $35 million, with $14.5 million in guarantees. Bryant now stays in Seattle, where he has been since being selected by the Seahawks in the 2008 NFL draft.
