Reports: Seahawks give OL Gabe Jackson $23M extension
The Seattle Seahawks gave offensive lineman Gabe Jackson a three-year, $22.575 extension one week after acquiring the 29-year-old in a trade, NFL Network reported Tuesday.
The new deal includes a $9 million signing bonus and an additional $7.075 million in guaranteed money, per the report.
The Seahawks sent a 2021 fifth-round draft pick to the Las Vegas for Jackson, who started 99 of 100 games at either guard position for the Raiders in seven seasons.
The Seahawks lowered their cap hit for this season while adding a year to his deal; Jackson had two years remaining on the five-year, $55 million extension he signed with the Raiders in June 2017.
“I actually got a little bit longer deal than I had in Vegas. It’s not too much difference from it. Just a little extension,” Jackson told Sports Radio KJR in Seattle on Tuesday.
The Raiders drafted Jackson in the third round of the 2014 draft.
