The Seahawks have locked up a key piece in the team’s offensive line for the next three seasons.

Guard Gabe Jackson, who the Seahawks acquired from the Raiders earlier in the offseason, has agreed to a contract extension with Seattle. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the deal is for 3 years/$22.75 million. The new deal includes $16 million guaranteed, with $9 million of that guaranteed money being a signing bonus. Jackson’s previous deal extended through 2022, and had an AAV of $11 million/year. The new contract will help the Seahawks reduce Jackson’s cap hit in the coming years.

Jackson is a great piece to add to the offensive line, despite his cost. Last year with Las Vegas, Jackson allowed zero sacks in 1,062 offensive snaps. As all Seahawks fans know, protecting Russell Wilson is paramount to the team’s success. Anything the team can do to bring in quality players at a reasonable cost is undoubtedly a positive.
