At the start of free agency, Seattle Seahawks’ free agent linebacker O’Brien Schofield had a lot of interest, but the New York Giants beat out other interested teams almost immediately, signing Schofield to a two-year deal worth $8 million with the New York Giants.
Schofield, however, failed his physical with the Giants and was forced to once again become a free agent.
The Tennessee Titans showed interest in Schofield and gave him another physical, which he reportedly passed.
On Friday, Schofield took to twitter to announce that he would be returning to Seattle next season, inking a new deal with the Seahawks.

Terms of the deal have not been announced.
Schofield was originally selected with the 130th overall pick in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals.
The Cardinals released Schofield during the season and he soon joined the Seahawks. Schofield recorded eight tackles and one sack in 15 games with the Seahawks.
