The Seattle Seahawks retained fullback/special teams ace Nick Bellore with a two-year deal, according to multiple reports Thursday.

Bellore was a Pro Bowl selection for his special teams contributions last season when he had 14 tackles, but his blocking on offense is also highly valued.

Bellore, 31, spent the past two seasons in Seattle and touched the ball four times. He caught a touchdown pass in 2019 among his two receptions and carried once and caught one pass in 2020.

But he played 293 snaps on special teams last season and 267 in 2019. Bellore has played more than 200 special teams’ snaps in all nine of his NFL seasons with the New York Jets (2012-14), San Francisco 49ers (2015-16), Detroit Lions (2017-18) and Seahawks.

Earlier in his career, Bellore played linebacker and he had 83 tackles and one interception in 14 games (10 starts) in 2016 with the 49ers. The Lions converted him into a full-time fullback in 2018.
