Seahawks offensive lineman Justin Britt is reportedly close to agreeing to a three-year contract extension with Seattle. The pact is worth $27 million, with Britt earning $13.25 in the first year of the new deal, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. "I'm thrilled we're able to reward him".
And Justin Britt is about to become the Seahawks' center beyond 2017. Really tough competitive guy and with all the homework that we did on him we think he has a chance to fit in really well in that regard.
In a post on Twitter, Britt wrote: "Thanks to the Seahawks, [franchise owner] Paul Allen, [general manager] John Schneider, [vice president of football administration] Matt Thomas and coach Carroll along with all my team-mates and the 12's for the support and making it all possible. And he's been a great teammate". It just happens to go to that spot, right in the center of it all. "I'm fired up about that". It keep their best offensive lineman from entering free agency and following similar riches on the open market that craves experienced, quality blockers - especially at the anchor spot of center.
Brock has started primarily as an outside corner for the 49ers - he had 31 starts the last two seasons and previous year played more snaps than any cornerback in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus. He immediately was named the starting right tackle during his rookie season en route to playing in all 16 games. A second-round pick in 2014 Britt has played tackle, guard, and center for Seattle, all while missing only one regular season game.
Britt was a pet project of sorts for Cable, doing everything the offensive line needed over his first three seasons in the league.
