Mayowa agreed to a contract with the Seahawks on Wednesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Mayowa joined the Raiders on a one-year deal for 2019 and had 15 tackles (10 solo), seven sacks and three forced fumbles in 15 games. The 28-year-old worked in a rotational role in Oakland, having played over 50 percent of defensive snaps in only one contest. Mayowa should provide a boost to the Seahawks' pass rush, which ranked tied for 29th in the league last season with 28 total sacks.
Mayowa recorded 15 tackles, seven sacks and three forced fumbles over 15 games in 2019. Mayowa signed a one-year deal with the Raiders -- his third team in as many years -- over the offseason. The draft additions of Clelin Ferrell and Maxx Crosby didn't afford Mayowa a start all season, and he averaged just 21.1 defensive snaps per game. However, he was explosive in a pass-rushing role, finishing second on the team in sacks. The 28-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent in March.
Mayowa registered three tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks in Thursday's 26-24 win over the Chargers. Mayowa is loving his second gig in Oakland -- he spent the 2014 and 2015 seasons with the team -- as he now has a career-high seven sacks through eight games. The 28-year-old is still a flaky IDP play with just 13 tackles in that span.
Mayowa notched a sack in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Texans. Mayowa only played 28 of 81 offensive snaps (34 percent), coming in tied for third among Raiders' defensive ends but with 24 fewer than Clelin Ferrell, who ranked second. Mayowa is used to the limited role, however, as he leads the team with 5.5 sacks over six games.
Mayowa recorded three tackles (one solo), 1.5 sacks and a forced fumble across 18 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. Two weeks into the season, Mayowa finds himself second in the league in sacks with 3.5. What's even more impressive is the fact the defensive end is getting to the quarterback in his limited amount of reps, as he only played in 24 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday. However, if he keeps up this level of play, expect his workload to quickly start to rise.
