The deal could potentially be worth up to $38 million.
Hill became a free agent last weekend after the team dropped its franchise tag on him and Hill refused to sign an $8.3 million tender offer.
The Seahawks said in a news release Thursday evening only that the team and Hill had “agreed to terms to a multi-year deal.” The dollar figures were confirmed by a person close to the situation who requested anonymity because the team does not comment on ongoing contract negotiations.
Hill and the Seahawks were held up for days over contract language provisions related to any possible league discipline Hill may face from an offseason arrest in January in Georgia for misdemeanor marijuana possesssion.
