The Seattle Seahawks could be adding another pass rusher to their suddenly deep group as the team meets with Cowboys free-agent pass rusher Aldon Smith. The Seahawks were linked to Smith prior to last season’s NFL trade deadline, but the Cowboys opted not to deal him to their NFC foe.
“Cowboys free agent pass-rusher Aldon Smith is visiting the Seahawks today, per me and @MikeGarafolo,” NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport detailed on Twitter. “A possible low-risk, high-reward addition for Seattle if all checks out. He had 50 QB pressures and 5 sacks last year.”
All signs point to the Cowboys not re-signing Smith, despite head coach Mike McCarthy publicly saying the team had not ruled out a new deal. The Dallas Morning News’ Michael Gehlken reported the Seahawks tried to trade for Smith last season.
