Eventually, in part because of a calf injury to nose tackle Sealver Siliga, the Seahawks agreed. McDaniel worked out for the team Monday and signed a contract, Canter said.
McDaniel, 31, started 29 games for the Seahawks in 2013 and 2014. The team released him last August, and McDaniel signed a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will have to compete for a roster spot in the weeks ahead.

Williams, the two-time defending champion in Cincinnati, cited a right shoulder injury, the same setback that forced her to withdraw from the Rogers Cup in Montreal last month.
For more than three years, Serena Williams has been the No. 1 player in the land, but that could come to an end — and at the worst possible time.
