Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith said last month that things were “looking very good” when it came to a potential contract extension. One day before the franchise tag deadline, the Seahawks have reportedly locked down their starting quarterback.
Seattle is signing Smith to a three-year, $105 million extension, per NFL Media, and confirmed by CBS Sports NFL Insider Jonathan Jones. It was known both sides had mutual interest entering the offseason, and Seattle did not wait to get a deal done. Smith’s new AAV of $35 million is tied for 10th among NFL quarterbacks, per Over The Cap.
