Hauschka Inks New Deal With Seattle

RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks and kicker Steven Hauschka have agreed to terms on a new multi-year contract after the best season of his career.

The team confirmed the agreement on Monday. Terms of the contract were not released. NFL.com reported it’s a three-year deal worth up to $9 million.

Hauschka was a standout last season for the Seahawks. He missed only two field goals during the regular season, one of which was blocked. He made 33 of 35 kicks overall, was perfect from beyond 50 yards, and made all of his extra point attempts. Hauschka also improved his kickoffs with a career-high 48 touchbacks.

In the postseason, Hauschka was a perfect 8 of 8 on field goal attempts.

Hauschka finished his third season with the Seahawks. Before coming to Seattle in 2011, Hauschka kicked for both Baltimore and Denver.
