Clint Gresham, widely viewed as one of the best long-snappers in the NFL, said Friday he has agreed to a new three-year deal with the Seattle Seahawks.
Gresham posted this Twitter message Friday afternoon, along with an Instagram photo of him signing his new contract while his fiancée, Matti Schumacher, watches.
Gresham's news deal is worth $2.7 million, including a $300,000 signing bonus.
It’s quite an eventful month of Gresham and Schumacher, who are getting married on March 29.
Despite the loss of two starters in free agency (cornerback Byron Maxwell and guard James Carpenter) and center Max Unger in a trade, acquiring tight end Jimmy Graham was enough to keep the Seattle Seahawks as the favorites to win the 2016 Super Bowl.
The Seahawks' odds of winning the Super Bowl next season are listed at 6-1 by www.Bovada.lv, slightly worse than they were on March 2 when the Seahawks were 5-1.
However, it’s still the best odds among the 32 NFL teams.
The Seattle Seahawks reached a one-year contract agreement with Cleveland Browns free agent defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reported Thursday afternoon.
Rubin (6-foot-2, 325 pounds) is 28 and has played all seven of his NFL seasons with the Browns. He was a sixth-round draft choice out of Iowa State in 2008. Rubin played in 13 games last season and had 28 tackles and one sack.
The Seahawks also re-signed defensive tackle D'Anthony Smith, who spent all last season on injured reserve.
