Former New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Jimmy Wilkerson has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks on a one-year deal for $1.5 million, according to a report by Scout.com.

Wilkerson joined the Saints last offseason from the Bucs. His best NFL production came in the 2008-2009 seasons when he finished with a combined 11 sacks and 69 tackles over two seasons for Tampa Bay. Last season for New Orleans he finished with 2 sacks in a reserve role playing mostly at defensive end while spendind some time at tackle.

The Saints drafted two defensive ends this past April and added ex-Lions DE Turk McBride via free agency to signal the end of Wilkerson's short stay in New Orleans.
