O'Brien Schofield has confirmed he's back with the Seattle Seahawks after his move to the New York Giants fell through.

The 27-year-old had agreed a deal to make the move to the Big Apple - only for the deal to break down.

According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport the stumbling block was of doubts over his physical. He tore his ACL back in 2010, and it would appear as the problem has arisen again which was big enough to stop his switch.

However it's not all bad for the Linebacker, after he confirmed on Twitter that he was heading back to Seattle.

He wrote: "Hey 12th man, I'm coming back home one more year. #blessed #backtowork #seahawks #12thMan"

Although not a key cog in the Seahawks' Superbowl winning season in 2013, Schofield started two regular season games. He had eight tackles and one sack in 15 games playing behind Bruce Irvin and Malcolm Smith.

He's likely to resume a similar backup role for the 2014 campaign.
