    Tony McDaniel to replace Red Bryant

    Seahawks defensive tackle Tony McDaniel will replace Red Bryant as the "five technique" after playing the "three technique" last year, reports The News Tribune. The five technique lines up on the outside shoulder of a tackle, while the three technique lines up on the outside shoulder of a guard. McDaniel often played outside during his four seasons with the Dolphins. "A lot of people probably don't know much about me and that I played there before," McDaniel told the paper. "I've got the body type — 6-7, 320. I definitely fit the body type to play end. It wasn't a big deal to move out there."McDaniel re-signed with Seattle for two years at $5.75 million, while Bryant left for the Jaguars. McDaniel had 53 tackles and two sacks in 15 starts last year.

    D-line shuffle coming for the Seahawks?

    Seattle's defensive line could look a little different in 2014. USA Today has the scoop on the Seahawks' cap situation and notes that linemen Red Bryant and Chris Clemons are both candidates for a restructured salary, if not a release. Bryant is due a $3 million roster bonus along with a $4.5 million base salary. His total cap number is $8.5 million. Clemons, 32, is due to make $7.5 million in 2014 with a $9.7 million cap number. If the team wants to re-sign Michael Bennett and Tony McDaniel, two free agents, they'd be wise to find cap space for them.
