Seahawks Interested In Re-Signing DT Ahtyba Rubin?


Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times hears that the Seahawks may have interest in bringing back veteran DT Ahtyba Rubin.

Condotta mentions that Rubin would be a “low-risk” signing for Seattle if they go this route, given that he missed the 2018 season due to a biceps injury he suffered during the preseason.

The Seahawks have shown interest in a number of free agent defensive linemen this offseason, so it would not be a surprise to see them add some depth for training camp.

Rubin, 32, is a former sixth-round pick of the Browns back in 2008. He spent seven years in Cleveland before signing a one-year deal with the Seahawks.

Rubin later agreed to a three-year extension with Seattle, but was released at the start of the 2017 season. From there, he had brief stints with the Broncos and Falcons before the Raiders signed him to a contract last summer.

For his career, Rubin has recorded 427 tackles, 15 sacks, two interceptions, six forced fumbles, a recovery and seven pass defenses over the course of nine seasons and 144 games.
