Seattle decided weeks ago not to give Hauschka a franchise tag, and instead agreed on a deal which should keep the kicker in Seattle until 2017.
Hauschka was extremely accurate last season, converting 33 of his 35 field-goal attempts.
Pro Football Focus noted that his performance in 2013 made him the league’s No. 5 overall kicker.
The Seattle P-I said that Hauschka’s 89.1 percent accuracy rate on field goals makes him the most accurate kicker in Seahawks history. He has been with the team since 2011.
