The Seattle Seahawks agreed to terms with former Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Tony McDaniel yesterday. McDaniel's addition is the third defensive lineman the Seahawks have signed this year. McDaniel joins Seattle on a one year deal.

The Seattle Seahawks continue to bolster their defensive line this offseason, yesterday adding former Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Tony McDaniel. While the specific financial terms of the deal have not been released, the deal is for one year.

McDaniel is the third defensive lineman signed by Seattle this year, joining Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett.

With the Dolphins, McDaniel served as the top reserve defensive tackle behind Pro Bowlers Paul Soliai and Randy Starks. In four years with Miami, from 2009-2012, McDaniel appeared in 54 games, starting twice, and recorded seven sacks, seven passes defensed, one fumble recovers, and 82 tackles. He also played three seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Former Seattle defensive tackle Alan Branch will likely not return to the team with the signing of McDaniel.

The Dolphins signed free agent defensive tackle Vaughn Martin on Thursday to replace McDaniel. The team envisions using Martin in the same role, as the primary backup to Soliai and Starks.
