Seahawks, Bryant agree to terms on five-year deal

The Seahawks and DL Red Bryant agreed to terms Tuesday on a five-year contract that averages more than $7 million annually, according to league sources.

The Seahawks later confirmed the deal.

Bryant was one of the most popular free agents on the market and was drawing interest from several teams because of his physical play and ability to stop the run.

Bryant doesn’t have the statistics of some other players, but he’s a good pass rusher and has an impact on the field. He’s an interesting player, even if his numbers don’t reflect what coaches see on film.

Bryant is a perfect fit for what Seahawks coach Pete Carroll wants to do on defense. This is a good fit for both sides.
