Seahawks re-sign K Steven Hauschka

The Seahawks and Steven Hauschka have agreed to terms on a new three-year deal to keep the free agent kicker in Seattle.

Update: The Seahawks have now announced the signing.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network is worth $9.15 million over three years with $3.35 million guaranteed.

Hauschka, who took over Seattle's kicking job in 2011, enjoyed his best season last year, making 33 of 35 attempts (one miss was a block), all 44 extra point attempts, and touchbacks on 51 percent of his kickoffs.

Hauschka is the fifth Seahawk to re-sign in free agency along with DE Michael Bennett, TE Anthony McCoy, DT Tony McDaniel and QB Tarvaris Jackson. Free agents Clinton McDonald, Chris Maragos, Golden Tate, Breno Giacomini and Brandon Browner have all signed with other teams in free agency, while the Seahawks released Chris Clemons, Red Bryant and Sidney Rice in cost-cutting moves.
