Cowboys deal with Henry Melton for one guaranteed season


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Henry Melton's next visit: Seattle


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/14/2014) In what might raise a few eyebrows, free agent defensive tackle Henry Melton will visit the Seahawks on Friday. ESPN revealed the news just days after Melton visited the Vikings. 

So why the raised eyebrows? This might turn into the Seahawks stumbling into signing an excellent player coming off of a torn ACL. They've taken on such projects in the past, getting veterans coming off an injury to sign for a nominal amount and then thriving with them. The Seahawks have lost a number of defensive linemen this offseason, notably Red Bryant. Melton could help replace those who have signed elsewhere. 

Melton played in just three games last year before getting hurt. He racked up six sacks in 2012 and seven in 2011. He's entering his sixth NFL season.
