The Seattle Seahawks decided they weren’t going to let defensive tackle Tony McDaniel get away, particularly to the Dallas Cowboys, who had been apparently targeting the free agent lineman. Seattle has reportedly signed McDaniel to a two-year deal according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.

Per Rapoport, the Cowboys were in the market for defensive linemen, and had inquired about McDaniel recently.
McDaniel signed with Seattle as a free agent in 2013 after spending the previous four seasons in Miami as a backup in the rotation. He became a full-time starter with the Seahawks last season, totaling two sacks and 53 tackles on the year.
He has become known as a fierce run defender.
As happy as this news will make Seahawks fans, it will probably frustrate some already on-edge Cowboys fans, who are becoming increasingly impatient with owner Jerry Jones and his lack of free agent acquisitions to ratio of players lost so far this year.
