Geno Smith will keep writing his story in Seattle.
The Seahawks announced what earlier was reported: They have reached agreement with Smith on a contract extension. Reports indicate it’s a three-year, $105 million deal.
He has earned $17.514 million in his career.
Smith, 33, was scheduled for free agency next week, and the Seahawks had until Tuesday afternoon to apply the franchise tag to the quarterback absent a deal.
Last season was Smith’s first as a full-time starter since 2014. He spent seven seasons as a backup.
He earned Pro Bowl honors and comeback player of the year, passing for 4,282 yards and 30 touchdowns and leading the league with a 69.8 completion percentage.
