The Seahawks have re-signed placekicker Steven Hauschka, the club said Friday.
Hauschka, 27, connected on 24-of-27 field goals in 2012. He also averaged 65.9 yards on kickoffs, forcing 36 touchbacks in 87 attempts.
Hauschka’s first try as a full-time No. 1 kicker didn’t end well; the Ravens released him during the 2009 regular season. However, he’s rebounded nicely, and in Seattle, he’s hit 49-0f-57 field goals in the last two seasons.
Hauschka’s return to Seattle takes perhaps the best veteran kicker off the market. Lawrence Tynes, Billy Cundiff and Neil Rackers are among the experienced kickers still unsigned.
