Britt extension another sign Seattle Seahawks determined to solve recent woes

Report: Seahawks closing in on extension for center Justin Britt

A consistent starter on the Seahawks turnstile offensive line Britt is a bright light in the Seahawks quest for another Super Bowl run.

Justin Britt tweeted a picture of himself signing a contract extension with the Seahawks on Thursday, not long after coach Pete Carroll said the team and Britt were "really close" to a deal.

According to Adam Caplan of ESPN, the deal is worth $27 million over three years. It also includes $15 million in guarantees, Rapoport reported.

"I'm really happy about the progress that we have been making and there is a chance something could happen", Carroll said.

Britt tweeted his excitement about staying in Seattle. "He had an excellent season". A second-round pick in 2014 Britt has played tackle, guard, and center for Seattle, all while missing only one regular season game. He started his career at right tackle, moved to left guard and a year ago settled at center, where he flourished.

"I think it's just recognition and acknowledgement of the player and the team-mate that he's become for us".

Really, like the rest of the group, his improvement is very noticeable. "There's too many aspects of it to go ahead and talk to you about it specifically".

Britt was a pet project of sorts for Cable, doing everything the offensive line needed over his first three seasons in the league.
