Saints released DT Tony McDaniel.

McDaniel didn't make it through training camp after joining New Orleans in mid-June. It's telling he didn't make the squad even with Nick Fairley (heart) out for the year. The 11-year veteran recorded 43 tackles over 500 snaps for the Seahawks last season.

Saints signed DT Tony McDaniel.

A quality rotational player for the Seahawks last season, McDaniel is a good get this late in the offseason. He should fill a similar role with the Saints, who need depth with Nick Fairley's future up in the air.

Free agent DT Tony McDaniel is participating in Saints minicamp on a tryout basis.

McDaniel, 32, played 501 snaps for the Seahawks last season and received really strong marks from Pro Football Focus for his run defense. Despite that, McDaniel has drawn zero interest as a free agent until now.

Seahawks signed DT Tony McDaniel.

McDaniel, 31, spent the 2013 and 2014 seasons with the Seahawks before making a one-year pit stop in Tampa Bay last season. He started 29 games for Seattle across those two seasons, but figures to slide in as a rotation run stuffer this time around. McDaniel played just 302 snaps last year for the Bucs.
Mon, Aug 15, 2016 06:06:00 PM

Bucs signed DT Tony McDaniel, formerly of the Seahawks, to a one-year contract.

After the Seahawks handed out contract extensions to Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner earlier this month, McDaniel got the boot. He was due $3 million in salary and bonuses in Seattle. He can reportedly earn up to $2.5 million in Tampa Bay. Run-plugging McDaniel joins an already-solid group of defensive tackles in Tampa, joining Gerald McCoy, Clinton McDonald and Henry Melton.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie said the team could have interest in free agent DT Tony McDaniel.

McDaniel was released by the Seahawks on Sunday in a cost-cutting move. The Raiders will be one of at least a few teams interested, especially given their cap space and the presence of former Seattle assistant Ken Norton Jr. as their defensive coordinator.

Seahawks released DT Tony McDaniel.

He was owed $3 million in salary and bonuses. It was inevitable the Seahawks would have to cut someone to clear cap room after signing Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner to big contract extensions. It's a big loss for Seattle's front seven as McDaniel received PFF's 15th highest defensive tackle grade last season. The 10-year veteran shouldn't have any trouble landing a new team.

Seahawks DT Tony McDaniel (shoulder) returned to practice Thursday, getting in a full session.

The run plugger is now on track to suit up for Sunday's NFC Championship Game.
Thu, Jan 15, 2015 07:27:00 PM

Seahawks DT Tony McDaniel's (shoulder) status is unclear for the NFC Championship Game.

McDaniel has yet to practice this week, but will apparently get some reps in on Friday. McDaniel appeared in all 16 games this season, starting 14 of them. The run plugger played 35-of-70 snaps in the Divisional Round.
Thu, Jan 15, 2015 03:24:00 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Tony McDaniel will replace Red Bryant at five-technique defensive end.

McDaniel is similarly big, long (6'7/320), and difficult to move, and his 2013 performance suggests he could be an upgrade on Bryant versus the run. In Seattle's 4-3 under scheme, "five technique" is a pure run-stopping position, where the player occupies blocks and sets the edge. The Seahawks will get pass rush from Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril, and Kevin Williams, among others.
Wed, Jun 25, 2014 07:58:00 PM

Seahawks DT Tony McDaniel spent some time at defensive end during Thursday's OTAs.

The Seahawks need someone to fill the run-stuffing end role vacated by DE Red Bryant when he moved to Jacksonville. McDaniel will get the first crack to fill the void, but he will have to fend off a challenge from DT Greg Scruggs, who missed all of 2013 recovering from an ACL tear.
Thu, Jun 12, 2014 07:14:00 PM

Seahawks re-signed DT Tony McDaniel to a two-year contract.

The deal is worth a "max" of $6.3 million. McDaniel was drawing interest from the Cowboys, but has opted to stay with the world champions. McDaniel started 15-of-16 games last season, ringing up 53 tackles and two sacks while swallowing up the run. He'll return as an early-down thumper.
Wed, Mar 12, 2014 05:22:00 PM

ESPN Dallas reports the Cowboys are interested in free agent DT Tony McDaniel.

McDaniel is currently in contract negotiations with the Seahawks, so Jerry Jones may not get a chance to sign the 29-year-old. McDaniel proved to be a top-of-the-line interior run defender in Seattle last season. Dallas needs interior linemen.
Wed, Mar 12, 2014 03:57:00 PM

The Seahawks are in contract talks with free agent DT Tony McDaniel.

McDaniel, 29, signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks last offseason and ended up starting 15 games. He recorded a career-high 53 tackles and two sacks while playing top-notch run defense. McDaniel stands 6-foot-7, 320.
