The Seattle Seahawks possess the best defense in the NFL, and they are doing everything they can to ensure that it stays the same in the foreseeable future.
They have already locked up their most important pieces by giving extensions to safeties Earl Thomas and cornerback Richard Sherman. The latest defensive player to earn a new contract is linebacker K.J. Wright.
Wright was given a four-year, $27 million extension by the Seahawks. He is having a solid season with 95 tackles and two sacks, and these numbers measure up to his previous seasons. He has been a consistent contributor to a tough defense.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network announced the Seahawks linebacker’s new contract on Twitter.
The #Seahawks announced a 4-year contract extension for emerging LB KJ Wright. I’m told it’s for $27M. Keeps him off the market.
