The Seahawks have agreed to terms on a new deal with Steven Hauschka that will keep the standout kicker under contract for the next three seasons, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (via Twitter). Rapoport reports that Hauschka’s new contract will be worth $9.15MM over those three years, with a guarantee of $3.35MM.
Hauschka, 28, has been with the Seahawks for the last three seasons after getting his NFL career started in Baltimore. He enjoyed his best season in 2013 for the Super Bowl champs, converting all 44 of his extra-point tries as well as 33 of his 35 field goal attempts. He also handled kickoffs for the club, racking up 49 touchbacks.
Assuming Hauschka plays out the three-year deal, it looks like his annual salary would be $3.05MM, which is in line with many of the other deals inked by top kickers this offseason. Nick Folk, Phil Dawson, Graham Gano, and Dan Bailey all signed deals with per-year salaries ranging from $3MM for Folk to about $3.21MM for Bailey.
