Jon Ryan staying with Seahawks on four-year deal
The Seahawks have re-signed another one of their unrestricted free agents as punter Jon Ryan tweeted Friday that he’s remaining in Seattle on a four-year deal. Seahawks owner Paul Allen has since announced as much.
“Found out this morning that I will have the honor of playing in front of the greatest fans in the world for 4 more years,” Ryan wrote on Twitter.
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports the deal is worth $10 million and includes a $2.5 million signing bonus. The $2.5 million average over four years represents a raise of $1 million from what Ryan made per year on his last deal.
Ryan, 34, has been with Seattle since 2008. He became the Seahawks’ longest-tenured player earlier this week when defensive tackle Brandon Mebane left in free agency after nine seasons in Seattle.
Ryan becomes the fourth unrestricted free agent Seattle has re-signed following defensive tackle Ahtyba Rubin, cornerback Jeremy Lane and wide receiver Jermaine Kearse.
