The Seattle Seahawks made their second big move for a pass rusher in as many years.

Falcons DE Patrick Kerney has informed FOXSports.com that he has signed to a six-year deal with Seattle, the team his former head coach Jim Mora coaches on. Kerney will receive $19.5 in guaranteed money and the total deal is worth $39.5 million.

Mora was part of the contingency that went to recruit the former first-rounder to Seattle as Mora and other Seahawks officials took owner Paul Allen's private jet to Atlanta to get the deal done.

Last off-season the Seahawks brought in Pro Bowl LB Julian Peterson and he panned out extremely well. Kerney is coming off an injury-plagued 2006 in which he only played nine games and had 4.5 sacks.

Last week Kerney told FOXSports.com he is a stunning two months ahead of schedule from a torn pectoral muscle that cut his season short. The former University of Virginia star has had three seasons of 10 sacks or more and made the Pro Bowl after 13 sacks in the 2004 campaign.

Police investigate reported rape at Kerney's home
Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) - Police are investigating a woman's claims she was raped at the home of former Atlanta Falcons defensive end Patrick Kerney.

Kerney, who recently signed with the Seattle Seahawks, was not a suspect in the assault, which reportedly took place early Sunday.

The 29-year-old woman told police she and some friends were at a bar in Atlanta's trendy Buckhead area and accepted a ride home from three men, Atlanta's WSB-TV reported Monday. Once back at Kerney's home, the men were invited inside for drinks.

The woman reportedly told police she fell asleep on a sofa and woke up in a bedroom to find one of the men raping her. The woman said she told the man to stop but he put his thumb on her throat and continued to sexually assault her.

The woman escaped by telling the man she would get a friend to join them. Instead, she ran to the bathroom with a friend, and the man fled with his friends.

In a statement issued Monday, Kerney said an assault had happened at this house while he was asleep. But he said he could not comment further "out of respect for my friend who was assaulted and the police officers who are diligently working to apprehend the offenders."

Earlier this month, Kerney signed a six-year, $39.5 million contract with the Seahawks after spending his first eight seasons with the Falcons.
