Player No. 3: Seahawks kicker Jason Myers

Unlike Nwosu, Jason Myers has a contract that will keep him in Seattle for many seasons to come. Myers was set to be a free agent this offseason but the Seahawks quickly acted to re-sign him before he could hit free agency, and Myers deserves every penny. Myers is signed with the Seahawks through 2026 with an average yearly cap number of $5,275,000.

This year, Myers made 34 of his 37 field goal attempts and 41 of his 42 extra point attempts. He was 6 for 6 beyond 50 yards with a long of 56 yards. Myers also made his only field goal attempt in Seattle’s Wild Card loss to the 49ers and that field goal was also from 56 yards. Plus, Myers will be 32 years old when the 2023 season begins and that means he is still in the prime of his kicking career.

There was a time not too long ago when the Seahawks were cycling through kickers. After not re-signing Stephen Hauschka after 2016, Seattle decided (stupidly) that it would use Blair Walsh and then Sebastian Janikowski at kicker. Neither of those experiments worked out in 2017 and 2018. Since Myers was brought to Seattle in 2019, he has made 87.5 percent of his field goal attempts and 93.5 of his extra point attempts. Many of those kicks are straight through the middle and leave little doubt that they will be good.

Myers also made the Pro Bowl in 2022, his first since 2018. He deserved to make it in 2020 as well when he made all 24 of his field goal attempts. As long as Myers is with the Seahawks, the team has zero concerns about its kicking game.
