The Seahawks have re-signed another one of their own, locking up cornerback Jeremy Lane, per Ian Rapoport.

Lane missed a lot of the 2015 season recovering from a torn ACL and severe arm injury he suffered returning an interception in Super Bowl XLIX, but he's a very good player and is versatile enough to play inside over the slot, or on the outside. This is a big depth move for Seattle and Lane will undoubtedly challenge for the starting spot opposite Rchard Sherman while likely playing inside at times as well. As Davis Hsu points out on twitter, these days, a solid slot cornerback is just as valuable as an outside guy. It really doesn't matter where he plays.

The terms of the deal have not yet been released, but Rapoport is saying that it's four years. That's a significant length of time so Seattle obviously feels they have a core player in Lane.

Stand by for the money figures. We'll post them here as soon as we see them.
