Chargers signed DT Brandon Mebane, formerly of the Seahawks, to a three-year contract worth $13.5 million.
A run-stopping specialist, Mebane spent the first nine years of his career in Seattle. He'll be a body in the middle of a line that was routinely gashed by the run in 2015. Mar 9 - 5:21 PM

The Seahawks are "working to bring back" free agent NT Brandon Mebane.

A career Seahawk, Mebane has devolved into a league-average two-down run stopper late in his career. Seattle should be able to retain him affordably.
Mar 9 - 11:43 AM

NT Brandon Mebane left the Seahawks' Week 3 game against the Bears with a groin injury, and his return is doubtful.

Mebane hasn't put his helmet back on since coming off the field. His backup at right defensive tackle is David King.

Seahawks NT Brandon Mebane's roster spot appears to be secure.

There was some light chatter that Mebane would be cut this offseason due to his $5.5 million salary and coming off hamstring surgery. But Seattle will keep its interior run-plugger for the final year of his contract. Mebane is expected to be ready for the start of training camp after sitting out much of the spring.

Seahawks NT Brandon Mebane (hamstring) is "ahead of schedule."

"I don't know what that timeline is for him to be back to full speed, but he's way ahead of schedule," coach Pete Carroll said. "He's looking great." Five months removed from surgery, Mebane is expected to be ready for training camp.

Seahawks DT Brandon Mebane (hamstring surgery) expects to be "full go" by April.

Mebane tore his hamstring in early November, and required surgery. Now 30, Mebane is due $5.5 million in 2015. That's a steep price for a rotational run plugger who just missed half a season, though Mebane was among the league's better defensive tackles in 2013.

Seahawks placed DT Brandon Mebane on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, ending his season.

TE Rashaun Allen was signed off the Vikings' practice squad in a corresponding roster move. Mebane tore his hamstring on Sunday against the Giants. A part-time player who features against the run, Mebane turns 30 in January. He's due $5.5 million in 2015. It's quite possible the Seahawks will ask him to take a pay-cut.

Sources tell FOX Sports that Seahawks DT Brandon Mebane (hamstring) is done for the season.

Mebane tore his hamstring against the Giants Sunday. It's a major blow to a run defense that will already be without ILB Bobby Wagner (toe). Mebane was playing about half the snaps for the Seahawks this season, but has been among their best defensive players for the last couple years. He was PFF's No. 2 tackle in terms of run defense in 2013.

Coach Pete Carroll stated Monday that NT Brandon Mebane has a "legit" hamstring injury and will miss "some time."

It's a plus to Jamaal Charles' matchup. The Seahawks will also be without ILB Bobby Wagner (toe). Charles is averaging 5.12 YPC with two touchdowns over his last three meetings with top-eight run defenses. He defines "matchup proof," in the first place, and now gets an easier Week 11 draw against Seattle.

Seahawks DT Brandon Mebane left Sunday's Week 10 game against the Giants with a hamstring injury and will not return.

Mebane was quickly ruled out for the day after going down in the second quarter, hinting at a serious pull. It's a blow to a defense that is surprisingly showing major holes against the Giants.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 05:46:00 PM

Seahawks DT Brandon Mebane (calf) is listed as probable for Week 5.

Mebane was back on the practice field Friday after sitting out on Thursday. "Mebane made it back," Carroll said. "He's in good shape." There was concern because Mebane had missed four games in 2010 because of a calf injury and one game in 2009.

Brandon Mebane has moved over to nose tackle for this season.

NFL teams have been moving away from mammoth nose tackles toward quicker penetrators over the past couple of seasons. Mebane's position switch and Alan Branch's positive play factored into the decision to release Colin Cole, who wasn't close to returning from ankle surgery.
Mon, Sep 5, 2011 12:42:00 AM

Seahawks re-signed DT Brandon Mebane.

The Seahawks held off a late pursuit from the Rams and reported interest from the Broncos to keep their top run-stuffer. With NT Colin Cole coming off ankle surgery, it was even more of a priority to retain Mebane. In Pete Carroll's system, Mebane won't be asked to rush the passer, but he's still a highly effective player.
Fri, Jul 29, 2011 06:32:00 PM

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch confirms the Rams have made an offer to free agent DT Brandon Mebane.

Beat writer Jim Thomas concedes the Rams are not considered the front-runner, though. Seahawks receiver Mike Williams hinted earlier in the day via Twitter that Mebane was returning to Seattle, though we've seen nothing official.
Fri, Jul 29, 2011 03:15:00 PM

ESPN's John Clayton thinks the Seahawks will retain free agent DT Brandon Mebane.

Mebane surprisingly hasn't generated much buzz this week despite being one of the best run-stuffers out there. The Seahawks' only competition appears to the Broncos. Perhaps the defensive tackle market has just been slow to develop as we haven't heard a peep about top free agent Aubrayo Franklin yet.
