The New York Giants moved quickly to make a signing that probably will fly under the radar, agreeing to terms with outside linebacker O’Brien Schofield.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com, the deal is worth $8 million over two years.
The New York Giants have agreed to terms with outside linebacker O’Brien Schofield on a two-year deal worth $8 million, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Schofield, 26, appeared in 15 games with the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks last season, recording eight tackles and one sack.
Schofield was originally selected with the 130th overall pick in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals.
Schofield was a very productive player for the Wisconsin Badgers in college and many projected him to be one of the bigger steals of the draft.
However, Schofield never worked out in Arizona, never recording more than 37 tackles.
He was cut last year and joined the Seattle Seahawks. In 15 games with the Seahawks, Schofield had just eight tackles and one sack.
Schofield is still just 26 years old and is certainly talented enough to take a chance on.
