3:05pm: The Seahawks have inked a pair of restricted free agents to one-year contract extensions, the team announced today (via Twitter). Offensive lineman Lemuel Jeanpierre and safety Jeron Johnson will be returning to Seattle for the 2014 season, according to the club.
Both Jeanpierre and Johnson have been with the Seahawks for three seasons, playing almost exclusively off the bench. Jeanpierre started three games and saw a career-high 291 snaps during the 2013 season, primarily at center. Johnson, meanwhile, appeared in just four contests for the club after seeing action in every game of the 2012 season.
