Fisher, who recorded a career best 46 tackles, nine sacks and two forced fumbles in 2004, will start opposite DE Grant Wistrom, who left the Rams last offseason to sign with Seattle. Fisher replaces former DE Chike Okeafor who left via free agency and signed a contract with the Arizona Cardinals.
A Renton native, Fisher returns home with a sizeable paycheck and raised expectations. After graduating from the Air Force Academy, he was a seventh-round draft choice of the Buffalo Bills in 1999. The Rams claimed him off waivers in 2002 and he has performed primarily as a backup up until last season when he took over and provided a consistent pass-rush in the last two seasons.
Stay tuned for more on this breaking story as information comes out of the Seahawks' Kirkland headquarters.
