Free Agency 2014 (3/14)

The deluge of free agency news has finally slowed to a trickle, but that doesn't mean there isn't any news to be found.  A big part of what has made Schneider so damned great as Seattle's general has been the phenomenal bargain signings he's made once the initial mad scramble for big name players and even bigger money contracts has petered out.

The Seahawks are bringing two defensive tackles in for a visit over the next few days, Vance Walker and Henry Melton.  Walker has just 26 starts to his name over four seasons, but he's young (26), he's versatile enough to play both end and tackle, and he was one of the few bright spots on a miserable Raiders team last season.  Melton is a better known name.  Melton is a more proven player with 32 starts and a 2012 Pro Bowl appearance to his name, but he's also coming back from a season-ending ACL tear he suffered in week three of last season and he has some off-the-field red flags to worry about (public intoxication and assault — dude bit a bar owner).

As before, I'll add more updates as reports come in.
