Brady Henderson adds that this is a one-day contract to retire with the Seahawks. 

Sweezy, 33, is a former seventh-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2012. He played out his rookie contract with Seattle before signing a five-year, $32.5 million deal with the Buccaneers in 2016.

Sweezy was two years into his deal with Tampa Bay when they cut him loose in a move that freed up $6.5 million of cap room. He signed a one-year deal with the Seahawks shortly after. 

The Cardinals signed him to a two-year, $9 million contract through 2020 and he later had a brief stint with the Saints before being released at the start of last season.

In 2020, Sweezy appeared in 13 games for the Cardinals and made 10 starts at guard.
