On Wednesday, the Seahawks agreed to terms with DE Ziggy Ansah on a one-year contract, according to reports.
Adam Schefter is now reporting that Ansah still is recovering from shoulder surgery that is expected to keep him out of training camp or longer.
League sources tell Schefter that they believe Ansah could miss “at least” the first month of this season.
Ansah’s shoulder injury is largely why he was still a free agent at this point in the year and explains the decision to sign a one-year contract.
Ansah, 29, was taken with the No. 5 overall pick by the Lions back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $18.595 million rookie contract before the Lions picked up his fifth-year option.
Ansah made a base salary $12.7 million for the 2017 season before the Lions used the franchise tag on him last year that cost them around $17.5 million fully guaranteed for the 2018 season.
In 2018, Ansah appeared in seven games for the Lions and recorded 11 tackles and four sacks.
