NFL free agency rumors: Seahawks, OLB K.J. Wright agree to 2-year deal

Wright, a fourth-round pick of Seattle in the 2011 draft, will join wide receiver Doug Baldwin as the longest-standing Seahawks.

There aren't many tenured Seahawks left on the defensive unit, but the team made sure to keep a few familiar faces around, including outside linebacker K.J. Wright.

According to a report from the Tacoma News Tribune, the two parties agreed on a two-year contract that will keep Wright in Seattle.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but an ESPN report states the deal is worth up to $15 million.

The deal comes just one day after the Seahawks reportedly secured OLB Mychal Kendricks on a one-year deal for around $4 million. 

Wright, a fourth-round pick of Seattle in the 2011 draft, will join wide receiver Doug Baldwin as the longest-standing Seahawks on the 2019 squad.

Wright, 29, missed 11 of 16 regular-season games last year after undergoing knee surgery and having a rocky recovery.

The Pro-Bowl player has tallied 744 total tackles in 112 career games. Wright also has two interceptions, 33 passed defended and 10 forced fumbles.
