Seahawks re-sign kicker Steven Hauschka

The Seahawks have re-signed kicker Steven Hauschka to a three-year contract worth $9.15 million, with $3.35 million  guaranteed.

The signing was first reported by NFL.com‘s Ian Rapoport and since confirmed by a league source to The Seattle Times.

In a breakout 2013 season, Hauschka hit 33 of 35 field goals last year, including a long of 53 yards. He also kicked two overtime game-winners — at Houston and against Tampa Bay, each capping comebacks that ranked among the greatest in team history. Equally important, Hauschka hit 14 of 15 field goals from 40 yards or longer.

It was the best season of his career, and he was a steady weapon for a team that leaned so much on winning games with its defense.

He will be 29 at the start of next season.

Hauschka becomes the fifth of Seattle’s unrestricted free agents to re-sign with the team. The others are:

DE Michael Bennett (4 years, $28.5 million, $10 million  guaranteed)

TE Anthony McCoy (1 year, $1.35 million, all guaranteed)

DT Tony McDaniel (2 years, $5.75 million, $1.25 million guaranteed)

QB Tarvaris Jackson (1 year, $1.25 million, all guaranteed)

Seattle still has four of its own free agents who remain unsigned. They are:

TE Kellen Davis

OL Paul McQuistan

FB Michael Robinson

LB O’Brien Schofield (Schofield initially agreed to a deal with the Giants, but it was then killed due to concerns over his knee).
