O’Brien Schofield has reportedly agreed to terms with the Giants on a two-year, $8 million contract, ending his tenure with the Seahawks after one season.
Schofield, claimed off waivers by Seattle in July, started two of the first four games while Bruce Irvin was suspended. But his playing time waned once Irvin returned, and Schofield was even inactive during the NFC title game. He finished with eight tackles in 15 games.
The Giants are paying starting money to a player who was buried on Seattle’s depth chart for much of last season. So while the move isn’t a blow to the Seahawks’ defense, it’s certainly a statement about where it stands.
