Geno Smith is apparently staying with the Seattle Seahawks. According to media reports, the quarterback has agreed with the team on a new three-year contract worth $ 105 million.
With Monday’s settlement, the team doesn’t need to apply the Franchise Tag to Smith, which can be used through Tuesday. Both sides had recently expressed optimism about further cooperation.
Exact details of the contract are still unclear, but this ensures that Smith will continue to play as a starter with the Seahawks next year.
Smith was the big surprise of last season, leading his team to the playoffs seven years after his last starter job with the Jets.
Smith had succeeded Russell Wilson, who was traded to Denver, and was eventually voted to the Pro Bowl and Comeback Player of the Year.
Smith is also the second well-known quarterback from the market after Derek Carr decided on Monday for the New Orleans Saints.
