The Seattle Seahawks have emerged as the front-runner to sign the free-agent defensive end, sources told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on Wednesday.
No contract has been signed yet, however, and the Buffalo Bills also remain interested in Ansah, Rapoport added.
Ansah was held back from finding a landing spot by a shoulder issue that has limited the defensive end for nearly a year. In March, Rapoport reported that prospective suitors wanted more information on the 30-year-old's surgically repaired shoulder before signing him.
Two weeks ago, Rapoport added that Ansah recently had a check-up with Dr. Neal ElAttrache. While the doctor found no structural issues with Ansah's shoulder, the defensive end still needed to rebuild strength. Rapoport said Ansah should be cleared by mid-August, or right in the middle of training camp.
