Over the weekend, after the deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets with other teams passed, two of the Seahawks’ four RFAs signed their tenders. David Moore, a seventh-round pick in 2017, signed an original-round tender while Jacob Hollister signed the second-round tender placed upon him.

On Monday, a third put pen to paper, with center Joey Hunt signing his original-round tender. Hunt announced news of the signing on his Twitter account.

Hunt, a seventh-round pick in 2016, will be in line to earn $2.133 million in 2020 under his RFA tender. However, after Seattle added a number of offensive linemen to their roster in free agency, Hunt will have an uphill battle to stick on the Seahawks’ roster for a fifth season.

Hunt, 26, started a career-high eight games in 2019, stepping in for starting center Justin Britt after he was lost for the season with a torn ACL. Prior to 2019, Hunt had started two games at the position over the course of his career.

With Hunt, Moore and Hollister under contract for 2020, just defensive end Branden Jackson is left to sign his restricted free agent tender.
