Another day, another new offensive lineman for Seahawks
SEATTLE – For the second time in two days, the Seattle Seahawks added an offensive lineman. And for the second time in two days, it wasn’t the move everybody’s been waiting for.
A day after signing offensive tackle Bradley Sowell to a one year-contract, the Seahawks and right tackle J’Marcus Webb reportedly agreed to terms on a new deal. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reported that it was a two-year deal worth $6.25 million.
The 27-year-old Webb has played six seasons for Chicago, Minnesota and Oakland, starting 61 of 71 games including all 16 for the Raiders last year. He was drafted in the seventh round out of West Texas A&M.
The Seahawks are likely still in the market for a starting left tackle. Last year’s starter, Russell Okung, reportedly has offers on the table from the Lions, Steelers and Giants and is still considering staying in Seattle.
