Seahawks Agree to 4-year Deal With WR Doug Baldwin
SEATTLE (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks and wide receiver Doug Baldwin have agreed to a four-year contract extension that runs through the 2020 season.
The team confirmed the agreement on Tuesday, first reported by KIRO-AM in Seattle.
Baldwin is coming off a career season, tying for the NFL lead in touchdown receptions and setting career highs in TDs, receptions and yards receiving. It's the second extension Baldwin has signed with the Seahawks after agreeing to a three-year deal following the 2013 season. Baldwin bet on himself by agreeing to a shorter deal at the time in the hopes of cashing in down the road.
Baldwin's representatives did not immediately return messages seeking comment.
Seattle coach Pete Carroll said at the conclusion of minicamp two weeks ago that Baldwin's extension was a priority this summer.
