The New York Jets have agreed to a deal with former Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle Breno Giacomini, the team announced.

He replaces right offensive tackle Austin Howard, who signed with the Oakland Raiders.

Giacomini is a 6-foot-7, 318-pound former Green Bay Packers fifth-round selection.

Giacomini started every game in 2012 when Jets general manager John Idzik was with the Seahawks.

He started a dozen games last season for the Super Bowl champions.

He missed seven games as he came back from knee surgery.
