The Raiders and Irvin agreed to a four-year, $37 million contract Wednesday, Tom Pelissero of USA Today reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Irvin was among a stable of capable free-agent linebackers, boasting 22 sacks in 58 career games to date. In addition to his noticeable impact in that realm, he's accrued four forced fumbles, three interceptions, two defensive touchdowns, and two fumbled recoveries. Expect Irvin to team with Khalil Mack to form one of the NFL's most fearsome pass-rushing tandems.

Irvin (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Recovering from a sprained MCL, Irvin will miss a second straight game. Mike Morgan should be a capable replacement, and the Seahawks still have a loaded front seven.

Irvin (knee) is inactive Sunday against the 49ers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Irvin (knee) was listed as out earlier in the week, so this news comes as no surprise. Expect both Mike Morgan and Kevin Pierre-Louis to take over duties at strong side linebacker in Irvin's absence. The Seattle defense should be just fine without him at home against the 49ers offense.

Irvin will likely sit out Sunday versus the 49ers due to a sprained MCL, the Seahawks' official site reports. "He's got a sore knee and he's going to miss this week unless something miraculous happens," said head coach Pete Carroll. "Hopefully we can contain it to a two-week thing if that's the case."

Competitive Edge Analysis

Considering the tentative timeline set forth by Carroll, Irvin will likely sit out at least the next two Sundays. In the meantime, Mike Morgan will slot in at strong-side linebacker, while Frank Clark and Cassius Marsh will split Irvin's nickel snaps at defensive end.

With just four tackles in two games to date, the 2012 first-rounder is off the fantasy radar in most cases, however.

Irvin (oblique) fully participated in Saturday's practice and is listed as probable for Monday night's game against Washington, the Seahawks' official site reports.

Irvin will play for the first time since Sept. 14, but with just four tackles in two games this season, he doesn't offer much fantasy appeal.
