The Seahawks brought in more defensive line help on Saturday, signing former Vikings defensive tackle Shamar Stephen.
At the age of 27, Stephen spent his first four NFL seasons in Minnesota, where he was active for 52 games from 2014-17 and started in the 2016 season, including all 16 regular season competitions. Stephen, 6 foot-5, 310 pound, collected seventh in Connecticut University, recorded 93 medals and a sack in the league in the last four years. Stephen’s 2016 campaign launches every game.
Stephen points out the third line of defense that Seahawks signed for the free agent in this offseason. On Friday, Seattle took on the role of defending Marcus Smith, defender of the Seahawks last season. Rusher Barkevious Mingo, listed as a linebacker, was added earlier this month.
