[ESPN.com] Free agent defensive tackle Rocky Bernard won’t be a Chief after all.
The Seahawks fought off the Chiefs on Wednesday and kept Bernard by reaching a three-year, $13 million deal that included a $5.4 million signing bonus. Bernard is coming off an 8½-sack season and also had his best season stopping the run.
The Chiefs flew in Bernard on Tuesday and were trying to talk him into a contract. The Seahawks kept in touch the entire time and wouldn’t let him go.
