Seattle's keeping the band together in the quarterback room.
The Seahawks have agreed to terms with Drew Lock on a one-year, $4 million deal, NFL Network Insider Mike Garafolo reported Thursday. Lock can earn up to $7.5 million in incentives, Garafolo added. Seahawks general manager John Schneider later confirmed the signing on his weekly Seattle Sports 710AM appearance.
Though he lost out to Smith in a QB battle ahead of the latter's renaissance season, Lock was pleased with his time in Seattle and enjoyed working with Smith, NFL Network's James Palmer reported.
A former second-round selection of Denver, Lock didn't see any action last regular season, but he has 21 career starts and a strong arm. Coupled with his newfound experience with the organization, Lock gives the Seahawks a viable backup option behind Smith and continuity for a club that went 9-8 and made the playoffs in surprising fashion last year.
