RENTON, Wash. (AP) -- The Seattle Seahawks made the decision this offseason to move 2012 first-round pick Bruce Irvin from defensive end to linebacker after a productive rookie season as a situational pass rusher.

Irvin believes the move has saved his career.

In his fourth game as a strongside linebacker for the Seahawks, Irvin racked up nine tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and an interception against the St. Louis Rams on Monday night.

Irvin has appeared in just four games for Seattle after serving a suspension to begin the season but he's already producing at his new position.
