K.J. Wright wasn’t a free agent very long. The former 2014 fourth round pick is staying in Seattle, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson.
And now that I just woke up and saw the message and reached out, Wright adds in another text, “it’s a “2-year deal worth up to $15M.” https://t.co/554Y34JiXe

Wright only played in five games last season. However, in his first four seasons, Wright finished in the NFL’s top 20 for total tackles.
For the Seahawks, keeping the linebacking corps, Bobby Wagner and Wright, together was very important, especially with the loss of safety Earl Thomas.
Thomas left Seattle to sign with Baltimore on Wednesday.
