Reports: DTs Melton, Walker visiting Seahawks
By Brady Henderson
In need of an interior pass rusher after losing Clinton McDonald in free agency, the Seahawks are reportedly set to meet with free-agent defensive tackles Henry Melton and Vance Walker.
Melton, according to Josina Anderson of ESPN, is en route to Seattle Friday to visit the Seahawks. A fourth-round pick by Chicago in 2009, Melton spent his rookie season injured reserve and tore his ACL in the third game of 2013. He had 15.5 sacks from 2010-2012, a strong total for an interior defensive lineman.
Walker, meanwhile, is scheduled to visit with the Seahawks Sunday, according to Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle. Walker started 15 games for Oakland last season, his first with the Raiders after spending his first four seasons in Atlanta. A seventh-round pick in 2009, Walker has eight career sacks.
