1:24pm: It’s a four-year deal worth $10MM, a source tells Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). Ryan gets a $2.4MM signing bonus.
12:50pm: Punter Jon Ryan took to Twitter to announce that he has a new four-year pact with the Seahawks.
“Found out this morning that I will have the honor of playing in front of the greatest fans in the world for 4 more years,” Ryan tweeted.
Ryan, 34, has been with the Seahawks since the 2008 season. With the exception of ’08, Ryan has appeared in all 16 regular season games for the Seahawks in all of his Seattle seasons. For his career, which also includes two seasons with the Packers, Ryan owns a 44.8 yard-per-attempt average on his punts. Ryan turns 35 in November, so this new four-year deal could potentially take him through his age-39 season.
