Wright isn't going anywhere, telling ESPN's Josina Anderson, "I am coming back to Seattle". Wright will re-sign with the Seahawks, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

Wright finished strong with seven tackles in Week 17 and then eight tackles and a late interception in the Seahawks' wild-card loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

A fourth-round pick by the Seahawks in 2011, Wright, 29, remains one of Seattle's longest-tenured players.

The move keeps Seattle's longstanding linebacker duo together and rounds out a group that, as of Wednesday, now includes Mychal Kendricks.

Wright missed 11 of 16 regular season games past year because of knee surgery, but finished with a strong performance in the playoffs against Dallas.

Kendricks was out for the season after suffering a knee injury in a Monday Night Football game in December.

Safety Earl Thomas is leaving Seattle to sign with the Baltimore Ravens. Rapoport adds the deal is for two years and is worth up to $15.5 million.
