Terms of the deal weren’t immediately disclosed, but the team’s announcement said it was a “multi-year” contract. An undrafted free agent from Harvard, Ott originally signed with the Patriots back in 2014. He never made the 53-man roster and after a brief stint with the Rams, he landed with the Giants. After a short stay in New York and another one with the Bengals, he finally settled in Seattle.
He’s snapped in all 16 games for the Seahawks each of the past two seasons. As Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times pointed out in a tweet, Ott would’ve been a restricted free agent after this season prior to this extension. Seattle should have a solid special teams unit for years to come with Ott, punter Michael Dickson, and kicker Jason Myers all in the fold.
