UPDATE: The Seahawks have officially announced the signing of Schofield.

According to O’Brien Schofield’s Twitter account, he has re-signed with the Seahawks.

Schofield had left as a free agent and signed a two-year, $8 million deal with the New York Giants, that was later voided because of a failed physical. He had recovered from an ACL tear in 2010.

A defensive end/linebacker, Schofield was used a lot in the  Super Bowl, playing early as a rush end and staying on the field for much of the game. Though, he was inactive for the NFC title game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Schofield had eight total tackles in 15 games last season with the Seahawks.

Schofield’s return means Michael Robinson is the only remaining Seattle free agent without home. He appears heading toward retirement.

    I’ll betcha he didn’t get 4m/year from the Seahawks. Not even on a one year deal. Good guy to have around though.

    Great to have Schofield back.

    Lets sign Kevin Williams too……

    Good stuff! Great depth player that can perform when needed.

    Also just signed DB A.J. Jefferson to a one year prove it deal.

  5. Schofield got hosed by the Giants. Those dinks. Well, he wasnt worth the contract anyhow, and Im damn glad to have him back. I hope he kicks butt and gets himself a nice contract after next year!

    Absolutely STT, he did get a bad deal from NYG. All signs point to them using the medical clearance when they just got cold feet. They are a dog S franchise, Eli sucks. They are going to be crappy again next year.

    Schofield looks like he could be a real stud if given a chance. With Clem gone, and Irvin in positional limbo, this could be exactly that. Glad to have him back, and wouldn’t be surprised if he toys with the 10 sack mark… also wouldn’t be surprised if he doesn’t get on the field, but definitely fits Carroll’s model of having more bullets in the gun than other teams tend to. Not sure about the regular season, but thoroughly expecting an undefeated pre-season again, as our 2’s and 3’s just massacre other teams bench squads.
