After visiting with the team on Tuesday, Dwight Freeney announced on Twitter that he has signed with the Seattle Seahawks.

The signing makes sense. Freeney, a veteran pass rusher, will help fill the void left by the injury to Cliff Avril.

Freeney has gone unsigned since Super Bowl LI, when he was a member of the NFC Champion Atlanta Falcons. He has recorded 122.5 sacks in his career, which places Freeney in the top 20 in NFL history.
