Seahawks Signing DE Benson Mayowa To One-Year, $3M Deal


David Canter of DEC Management announced that his client, DE Benson Mayowa, is signing a contract with the Seahawks. 

According to Tom Pelissero, the Seahawks are signing Mayowa to a one-year, $3 million fully guaranteed contract and carries a max value of over $4 million through incentives. 

Mayowa, 28, wound up signing on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Idaho back in 2013. He lasted over a year in Seattle before he was waived at the start of the 2014 season and later claimed off of waivers by the Raiders.

Las Vegas declined to tender Mayowa a restricted offer a few years ago and he later signed a three-year, $8.25 million contract with the Cowboys. Dallas elected to cut him loose in 2018 and he eventually signed on with the Cardinals. 

He signed a one-year deal with the Raiders in April of last year and finished his contract to become an unrestricted free agent.

In 2019, Mayowa appeared in 15 games for the Raiders and recorded 15 total tackles, five tackles for loss, seven sacks, and three forced fumbles. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 86 overall edge defender out of 107 qualifying players. 

We had him included in our Top 100 Available 2020 Free Agents list.
