CURTIS CRABTREE, Associated Press
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks defensive end O’Brien Schofield is more determined than ever to prove himself after what he calls a “crazy” offseason.

Schofield was one of the most disruptive players on Seattle’s defense in the Seahawks’ 41-14 preseason win over the San Diego Chargers last Friday night. Schofield racked up three tackles — two for loss — a sack and four quarterback hits.

Schofield was set to turn his success as a member of the Super Bowl champion Seahawks into a lucrative contract this offseason. Schofield agreed to terms on a two-year, $8 million deal to join the New York Giants only to have the deal voided after he failed his physical.
