Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider announced this afternoon that the team had re-signed defensive tackle Brandon Mebane.
Terms have not been disclosed. But Schneider confirmed what we had heard earlier – that there was a lot of back and forth in negotiations. But he’s pleased to have Mebane back in the fold.
“Being able to re-sign one of your own guys who was a hot commodity in free agency is huge for us,” Schneider said. “He wanted him to stay here, and we wanted him to stay here.”
I talked briefly with Mebane this afternoon, who confirmed Schneider’s statement that staying in Seattle was his first choice all along.
“Oh yeah,” Mebane said. “This is where I wanted to be. One of the main things was just looking closely at this whole situation, but it was a stressful process.”
Schneider also announced the team had agreed to terms with third-round draft pick offensive guard John Moffitt, which means all nine of Seattle’s draft picks are now signed and ready to participate in training camp.
Schneider talked for about a half hour about all of the free agents who signed contracts with Seattle today. I’ll provide more details a little later.
