Seahawks add another pass rusher, bring back Benson Mayowa




RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- The Seattle Seahawks are reuniting with another former pass rusher after agreeing to terms on a deal with defensive end Benson Mayowa.

Mayowa's agent David Canter

NFL Network reported its a one-year deal.

Mayowa is the second former Seahawks pass rusher being brought back for another opportunity. The Seahawks agreed to a deal with former first-round pick Bruce Irvin in the opening days of free agency.

Mayowa didn't get much of an opportunity in his one season with the Seahawks in 2013, appearing in just two regular-season games. Over the last four seasons, he's developed into a solid pass rusher off the edge. Mayowa had six sacks in 13 games in 2016 with Dallas. In 2018 with Arizona, Mayowa had four sacks and a career-high 38 tackles.

And last year with the Raiders, Mayowa had a career-best seven sacks and three forced fumbles.

Mayowa, who will turn 29 in August, was an undrafted free agent out of Idaho when he entered the league with the Seahawks.
