SEATTLE – Goodbye, Bruce.
Multiple outlets reported Tuesday night that the Oakland Raiders will sign free agent linebacker Bruce Irvin on Wednesday, ending his four-year stint with the Seattle Seahawks.
Irvin was the Seahawks’ first-round draft pick in 2012. He has 87 tackles and 22 sacks on in 58 games.
He had said on several occasions he would play for a hometown discount in Seattle, but many around the NFL speculated that Seattle wouldn’t be able or willing to come close to what other teams would offer.
