Aldon Smith, who signed with the Seahawks last week in the latest step in reviving an NFL career that has been beset by legal and other issues, is wanted in connection to a second-degree battery case in the New Orleans area, according to a report from WDSU-TV in New Orleans.

While Seattle may seem in good shape with rushers after re-signing Carlos Dunlap and Benson Mayowa and adding free agent Kerry Hyder, the Seahawks on Wednesday are reported to be getting a visit from one of the bigger-name rushers still available — Aldon Smith.
Tyler Lockett is not looking to the end of his career just yet.
Defensive end Kerry Hyder, one of two significant new free-agent additions to Seattle's defense (the other being former 49ers teammate Ahkello Witherspoon), signed a two-year deal worth up to $6.5 million.

Consider that of the top 100 free agents as listed by NFL.com, all but 21 are signed — and stop us if you've heard this before, but at the top of the list is Jadeveon Clowney, at number seven. Others include Seahawks K.J. Wright (44) and Quinton Dunbar (83) and former Seahawk Richard Sherman (51).
One of the attractions of the Seahawks to new tight end Everett — and vice versa — is that he is already familiar with the offense of new Seattle offensive coordinator Shane Waldron.
