Clay Matthews drawing interest from Seahawks
The Seahawks are reportedly interested in signing veteran linebacker Clay Matthews per Mike Silver on Twitter.
The Seahawks have decided to throw in the towel on contract negations with pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney and are interested in two veterans to fill the gap: Matthews and Everson Griffen. Matthews has spent 11 years in the league, 10 with the Packers and one season with the Rams. His days as an elite pass-rusher are behind him, but his veteran leadership would fit in well with the Seahawks as they're in win-now mode. He was able to garner eight sacks last season, his most since 2014.
