Dwight Freeney is back.
Freeney, a seven-time Pro Bowl selection, is returning for a 16th NFL season at age 37. The Seattle Seahawks announced Tuesday night they agreed to a contract with the veteran defensive end, who worked out and took a physical for the team earlier in the day.
Freeney’s deal is for one year, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Freeney played in 15 games with the Atlanta Falcons last season, recording three sacks to bring his career total to 122.5. The 2002 first-round pick also spent time with the San Diego Chargers and Arizona Cardinals after spending his first 11 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.
The Seahawks needed a defensive end and had an open roster spot after placing Cliff Avril on injured reserve with a neck/spine injury.
