Seahawks sign OT Brown to an extension

The Seattle Seahawks have struck a new deal with offensive tackle Duane Brown. He has reportedly agreed to a three-year, $36.5 million deal.
Brown, who is in his first training camp with the team, will make $9.5 million this season. Then, next season, his new deal which he struck on Saturday will begin.
He’s the third offensive lineman to strike a deal in recent days. It all began with Tennessee Titans offensive tackle Taylor Leean signing the richest deal ever for an offensive lineman.
Shortly after Lewan’s deal was announced, the Atlanta Falcons signed Jake Matthews to an extension.
Despite being a 33-year-old commitment, the Seahawks are showing him a commitment. They hope that he’ll be able to play the next four seasons at a high level, protecting quarterback Russell Wilson.
He will now be with the Seahawks through the 2021 season.
Brown began last season with a lengthy holdout with the Houston Texans. Then he was dealt to the Seahawks last October.
He reportedly had his lengthy holdout after not being happy with the guarantees in his previous deal.
In his NFL career over the past decade, he has started 142 games. The four-time Pro Bowler started nine games after being acquired.
