NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Monday that the sides agreed to terms on a three-year contract worth $9.15 million with $3.35 million guaranteed, according to a source informed of the process.
The contract makes Hauschka the 11th-highest paid kicker in the NFL, according to Spotrac.com. By comparison the top paid kicker, Sebastian Janikowski, got a four-year, $15 million contract with $8 million guaranteed from the Oakland Raiders last year.
The 28-year-old Hauschka has been very productive in his three seasons in Seattle. Last regular season he converted 33 of 35 field-goal attempts -- including three for three from 50-plus yards and 11 of 12 between 40 and 49 yards. He also has missed just three extra-point attempts in his six-year career.
Hauschka is a solid keep for the Super Bowl champions. He graded as Pro Football Focus' No. 5 overall kicker in 2013. With Hauschka's combination of youth and accuracy at CenturyLink Field, it would have been hard to watch Seattle let him walk away.
