The Seahawks needed a defensive end and had an open roster spot after placing Cliff Avril on injured reserve with a neck/spine injury.

Freeney tweeted later that evening that he had signed a deal with the Seahawks.

With 122.5 sacks on his resume, it's safe to say Freeney is already a first-ballot Hall of Famer.

Freeney worked out for the Seahawks on Tuesday and took a physical.

Kenya election: Last-minute court bid to block poll
On Tuesday, the election board cancelled a planned briefing with journalists on preparations for the polls. On Monday, the International Crisis Group, a global think-tank, called for a delay in the election.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, one such option the Seahawks would turn to is veteran free agent Dwight Freeney, who met with the team on Tuesday. The veteran defensive end was still a free agent and the Seahawks chose to offer Freeney a deal to finish out the 2017 #NFL season in Seattle. He didn't play tons of snaps in Atlanta, averaging 28 per game.

The seven-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro was a solid rotational pass rusher for Atlanta previous year, tallying three sacks in 15 games. He is expected to practice for the first time with the Seahawks on Wednesday with the intention of making his debut when Seattle hosts Houston on Sunday. One of those sacks, however, was a game-clinching sack of new Seahawks teammate Russell Wilson in 2014.

After leaving the Colts in 2013, Freeney joined the San Diego Chargers for two seasons. He spent the first 11 years of his career with the Indianapolis Colts, where he was consistently one of the most dominant defensive players in the league.

He has played three games at CenturyLink Field with the Colts in 2005, Cardinals in 2015 and Atlanta last season but did not get a sack in any of the three games.
