O'Brien Schofield DL SEA 7 Months

Seahawks re-signed OLB/DE O'Brien Schofield to a one-year contract.

Schofield, 27, finished the 2013 season with eight tackles and a sack, seeing action at both defensive end positions and some strong-side linebacker in a deep sub-package role. He'll battle for a roster spot in Seahawks training camp.

Free agent OLB O'Brien Schofield worked out for the Titans on Wednesday.

Schofield inked a two-year, $8 million deal with the Giants on the opening day of free agency but had the agreement nixed after he failed his physical. He reportedly passed his Tennessee physical Wednesday. Schofield was drafted by new Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt and the Cardinals in 2010.

A source tells NJ.com that the deal between free agent OLB O'Brien Schofield and the Giants is now "dead."

The Giants put Schofield through a physical and found a problem with his knee. It's likely related to his 2010 ACL tear sustained during the Senior Bowl. Schofield agreed to terms on a two-year, $8 million deal Tuesday, but we're re-marking him as a free agent for now. Perhaps the two sides will be able to agree on a less lucrative deal that protects the Giants against injury.

Giants agreed to terms with DE/OLB O'Brien Schofield, formerly of the Seahawks, on a two-year, $8 million contract.

Schofield played outside linebacker in Arizona and Seattle during his first four seasons, but will likely play with his hand in the dirt in New York. He has 11.5 career sacks across 40 games. Schofield will also contribute on special teams.

After claiming him off waivers from the Cardinals, the Seahawks renegotiated OLB/DE O'Brien Schofield's contract.

Schofield was scheduled to earn a $1.323 million salary, but the two sides agreed to knock it down to the four-year veteran's minimum of $630,000. LBs coach Ken Norton has been impressed with Schofield in the five days he's been with the team, and the lower salary gives him a better chance at a roster spot.

Seahawks claimed OLB O'Brien Schofield off waivers from the Cardinals.

Arizona cut ties with Schofield on Thursday after signing John Abraham. It's a nice landing spot for the 26-year-old pass rusher. Seattle is dealing with injuries to some edge players, and Bruce Irvin is facing a four-game suspension to open the season. Schofield has just 10.5 sacks in his three-year career, but he was highly regarded coming out of Wisconsin. The more competition, the better.

Cardinals waived OLB O'Brien Schofield.

Schofield, a fourth-round pick out of Wisconsin in 2010, never seemed to be in the plans of the new Arizona regime. Frankly, he hasn't been that good in his three seasons, either. A nine-game starter last season before a season-ending ankle injury, Schofield registered just four sacks and has just 10.5 in his career. The Cardinals' signing of John Abraham was the final nail in the coffin.

The Cardinals' official website made no mention of OLB O'Brien Schofield when dissecting the team's pass rush.

Beat writer Darren Urban talked briefly about Sam Acho, Matt Shaughnessy, and Lorenzo Alexander, as well as rookie Alex Okafor, but Schofield's name was nowhere to be seen. It's expected that Alexander will start opposite Acho, and it appears Schofield has fallen behind the other two. Schofield carries a $1.323 million salary and may be on the outside looking in.

The Cardinals' website anticipates OLB O'Brien Schofield losing his starting job to Lorenzo Alexander.

Alexander is a career special teamer, but the Cards are giving him a chance to earn a big role on defense. A major 2012 disappointment, Schofield managed four sacks across nine starts and underwent year-ending ankle surgery in November. Pro Football Focus graded him negatively as both a pass rusher and run defender.
