Seattle bringing back Schofield, adding Jefferson
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Linebacker O’Brien Schofield and cornerback A.J. Jefferson are both joining the Seattle Seahawks, according to their representatives.

Schofield announced on his Twitter page Friday that he was re-signing with the Seahawks, a message that was repeated by his agency. Jefferson’s agent also tweeted about the cornerback joining the Seahawks.

The Seahawks did not comment on whether either player had signed.

Schofield proved important early last season when injuries hit the Seahawks defense. Schofield appeared in 15 regular-season games with two starts. He finished with one sack and appeared in two playoff games. Schofield agreed to a deal with the New York Giants in free agency but the deal was voided.

Jefferson appeared in 25 games combined over the past two seasons with Minnesota. His best season came in 2011 with Arizona when he had 59 tackles and one interception.
