Seahawks, WR Baldwin Agree to Extension

By  | 

RENTON, Wash. (AP) - Doug Baldwin and the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to a contract extension that locks up the former undrafted wide receiver through the 2016 season.

The team confirmed the new deal for Baldwin during a news conference Thursday. The agreement was first reported by ESPN.

The new contract is expected to add two additional seasons. Baldwin was a restricted free agent for 2014 and had a second-round tender placed on him by the club, but was hoping to get a long-term deal done. Baldwin posted details of the deal on his Facebook page early Thursday morning, but the post was later removed.

Baldwin has proven to be invaluable for the Seahawks throughout his career.
