Stephen, 28, is a former seventh-round pick of the Vikings back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,285,148 contract with the Minnesota Vikings last year before agreeing to a one-year contract with the Seahawks.
The Vikings elected to bring Stephen back this past March on a new three-year, $12.45 million contract.
In 2018, Stephen appeared in 15 games for the Seahawks and recorded 25 tackles and two sacks. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 98 interior defender out of 112 qualifying players.
