  • Interesting players, originally signed with the Hawks and then got picked up by the Cowboys. Been a solid rotational player for them since.

  • A 2nd or 3rd string DE with a quick get off, was here for a season then released with the cuts the next, then grabbed by Dallas and played adequately in relief for them for 2 seasons, now a FA. Seattle had hoped to keep him on the PS but Dallas recognized his ability. Knows Seattle's D. Has been visiting several teams around the league this FA period.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to consistently take the final step. The interior rush needs improvement. The OLine clearly still needs work.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons. Awesome!!!

    Close. Only he went to Oakland from here for 2 years, then to Dallas. He was here in 2013 with a strong Dline at the time....so there is that too.

  • Journeyman player, a kind of player that can come in for a play, two, or five and give your starters a blow. He'll not hurt you. Once in a while he'll make "a play". If he can't be had for lowish money Hawks will pass.

    Correct -- played really well against B players in pre-season games

    Got released and had a solid 2016 with Dallas. I remember watching him in several games and thinking - he should be playing for the hawks. Ended up with 6 sacks (yes I just googled it) in 2016 but only had 1 in 2017. Not sure if there were injuries / not getting opportunities or what caused the drop

    Either way I think he could be had cheap and we already know who he is. He could do some damage in the backfield as he proved in 2016

    So zero sacks against real NFL linemen coached by a real NFL offensive line coach?

    Tom Cable was impressed with how he was able yo beat his expertly coached OL and suggested signing him to play OT.

    But he did look great on that sack though!

    I remember thinking, "Dang, Mayowa...what a beast...why'd we let him slip away?" before I realized that was his one for the year.

  • This has vet minimum written all over it (still doubt they actually sign him).

  • Hmmm, backup LB....I wonder how his ST work is? We had a few screw ups on ST last season, too. LBs are often good open field tacklers.
    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.
