Former Vikings DT Shamar Stephen signs with Seahawks

Report: Seahawks sign defensive tackle Shamar Stephen

The Seattle Seahawks are apparently not finished adding to their defensive line.

Since the Vikings signed defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson this offseason after a season with Seattle, the Seahawks have signed two former Vikings defensive tackles.

Stephen is only 27 years old and has played in 52 games over his career since being a seventh-round selection of the Vikings in the 2014 NFL Draft, being picked with the #220 overall selection.

As usual, we at The Viking Age would like to wish nothing but the best for Shamar Stephen during his National Football League career and beyond as well as thank him for his time spent with the Minnesota Vikings. Both of the free agent defensive tackles agreed to terms on one-year contracts with the Seahawks.

Friday, it was former Viking Tom Johnson who signed with Seattle. In 2016, he actually started all 16 games but started just one last season with the emergence of Johnson.

Stephen suffered a torn meniscus in the playoffs and had surgery, however, he is expected to be fully recovered by OTA's this spring. The Vikings will likely add an interior defensive lineman in the draft next month. The three will be joined by Jarran Reed, Frank Clark, Nazair Jones and Dion Jordan next season. He had 28 tackles (nine solo) and a sack a year ago.
