Seahawks Ink Free Agent DT Jason Jones

The Seahawks have added a defensive tackle to their free agent pickups, as today the team inked a one-year deal with Jason Jones.

A second-round pick out of Eastern Michigan by the Tennessee Titans in 2008, Jones has 112 tackles and 15.5 sacks over the last four seasons. The 6-foot-5, 273-pound Jones is a defensive tackle who was asked to play the defensive end position for the Titans last season.

Jones joins a talented defensive line in Seattle. Last year, Seattle re-signed Brandon Mebane to a five-year, $25 million contract and run-stuffing defensive tackle Alan Branch was signed to a two-year, $7 million. Earlier this week, the Seahawks retained defensive end Red Bryant on a five-year, $35 million contract that included $14.5 million in fully guaranteed money.

With the Seahawks, Jones would play his natural “3” technique position and provides an interior pass rush the club has been missing the last few seasons.

Prior to heading to Seattle, Jones paid a free agent visit to the St. Louis Rams, who signed Kendall Langford to a four-year, $24 million contract that included $12 million in guarantees.
