Now that the draft is over, teams are searching back over the free agency wire to see if there are any other players that can help build their roster. Former Detroit Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah remains one of the most prized players available, and it appears another team is interested in his services.

After reportedly meeting with the Saints and the Bills before the draft, the Seattle Seahawks are reportedly brought in Ansah for a visit.

As Schefter noted, the Seahawks have a newfound need on the edge after trading Frank Clark away. However, Seattle did draft TCU defensive end L.J. Collier in the first round.

There hasn’t been any news about how Monday’s visit with the Seahawks went, but at this point, there’s no hurry to get anyone signed until at least organized team activities, which begin in mid-May.
