The Seahawks have finally come to terms with their #1 draft pick Kelly Jennings. FOX Sports reports the 5-year deal is worth $9.5 million, with about $5 million guaranteed.
The deal, signed Sunday morning, features a payout that sounds extremely close to what the New York Giants structured with Mathias Kiwanuka a few days ago. As mentioned here on Thursday, some Hawk watchers speculated that Jennings was holding out for an upfront cash guarantee along the lines of Kiwanuka's deal with New York. As it turned out both got guarantees of $5 mil.
So that takes care of that. Jennings should be reporting to camp Sunday. A peeved Holmgren is anxious to get going.
