Defensive tackle Tom Johnson agreed to a one-year deal worth $2.7 million with the Seattle Seahawks, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported on Friday.

Johnson joins a Seattle team in the midst of significant change, with fellow defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson signing with Minnesota last week for a base salary of $8 million and incentives that could up his total pay to $11 million.
