According to multiple reports, the Seahawks have agreed to terms with former Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah. There's plenty of room for Ansah on a D-line that jettisoned DEs Michael Bennett and Frank Clark over the past 2 offseasons. Ansah joins a group that includes 2019 first-rounder L.J. Collier, 2018 rookie Rasheem Green (a potential DE/DT swing player like Bennett) and some backup/rotational types. Ansah has lingered on the market because of an injured shoulder that will be worth watching through the summer. But Seattle clearly believes he'll be ready to contribute this fall.

Recent Shark Bites

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah left Sunday's win over the Cardinals early after re-injuring his right shoulder. It's the same joint that cost him 6 games earlier this season. Dr. David Chao projected from video review that Ansah's "likely" headed for season-ending surgery on the labrum in that shoulder. We'll keep an eye out for an official diagnosis. Romeo Okwara would figure to see his playing time rebound after Ansah's return cut into his snaps.

Update: Ansah is done for the season.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Bears. He’s OK for use in deep IDP leagues but saw only limited playing time in his Week 9 return and doesn’t face a great matchup vs. Chicago.

Lions DE Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. He played through a questionable tag last week and then put in limited practices all this week, so we'd bet on him playing again.

Lions DE Ezekial Ansah is active for today's game against the Vikings. He had been sidelined since suffering a shoulder injury in the 1st half of Week 1. We'll see just how many snaps he's in for. Ansah's a deep option for IDP owners but carries lots of risk as well.

The Lions "are optimistic" that DE Ezekiel Ansah will finally return from his Week 1 shoulder injury today against the Vikings, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Ansah will test it out pregame, and it's tough to know just how much we can expect Ansah to play. But he's at least expected to be available for the 1st time since the 1st half of the 1st game. Ansah's return will likely affect the playing time of recent IDP stud DE Romeo Okwara, who has been manning Ansah's right DE spot.
