(1090 The Fan) – Kicker Steven Hauschka will be in a Seahawks uniform next season after sealing a new deal with the team Friday.
Hauschka joined Seattle after being claimed off waivers (Denver) on September 4, 2011 and has converted 49 of 57 field goals (.860) and 80 of 82 PATs with a long of 52 in his two seasons with the club. Last season he made 24 of 27 field goals for a career-high 118 points and set the franchise-record with 14 consecutive games with a made field goal (10/9/11 – 9/16/12).
In five seasons, he has played in 53 games, converting 65 of 79 field goals (.823) with a long of 54 and made 117 of 120 PATs.
Hauschka’s re-signing comes a day after the Seahawks released their 2013 schedule.
