Seahawks sign DT Rubin, bring back LS Gresham


The Seattle Seahawks signed veteran defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin and re-signed long snapper Clint Gresham on Friday.

Rubin signed a one-year deal that could be worth $3.1 million, according to ESPN’s Adam Caplan.

Gresham announced his own three-year deal, which is worth $2.7 million, including a $300,000 signing bonus, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times.

Rubin had played the past seven seasons in Cleveland, where he was a sixth-round pick in 2008.

The 6-foot-2, 325-pounder twice has surpassed 80 tackles in a season (2010 and 2011) and just finished a four-year, $26.5 million contract.

Last season, an ankle injury limited him to 28 tackles in 13 games — possibly the reason his market was not more robust.

Gresham has been the Seahawks’ snapper since 2010. He just finished a two-year, $1.66 million deal.
