Seahawks right tackle Germain Ifedi will reportedly become a free agent following the 2019 season, barring a contract extension, as the Seahawks will not pick up Ifedi’s fifth-year option, per ESPN’s Brady Henderson.

Ifedi, the Seahawks’ 2016 first-round NFL Draft pick, would be owed $10.3 million in 2020 if Seattle picked up his option. He has a base salary of $1.5 million and salary cap hit of $2.6 million this year.

The 24-year-old Ifedi has played 44 games (all starts) in three seasons with the Seahawks. He saw dramatic improvement in 2018 as he moved to a regular spot at right tackle.
