Seattle Seahawks Secure Beast Mode With 4 Year Deal

If Gregg Williams Had a Bounty on Beast Mode...

The 12th Man can rest easier tonight knowing their most important offensive player will be a Seattle Seahawk throughout the prime of his career.

The skittle munching running back has reupped on a new four year contract worth up to $31 million with $18 million in guaranteed money.

This keeps him a Seahawk until that imaginary but very real 30 year old line comes to pass in Beast Modes career.

The Seahawks are still poised to be massive players in the free agent market with the team being linked to a big money move for Texans defensive end Mario Williams. With a reported $31 million in cap space before the Lynch re-signing, they could afford to dump any amount of Paul Allens money it takes to get a deal done and still have money left over to sign additional starters if they desire. The Texans are very unlikely to be able to keep Williams; widely regarded as one of the leagues top defensive players and a true franchise cornerstone at his position.

With Beast Mode checked off their plate, look for the team to put the press on making Red Bryant a Seahawk for the long haul before turning their attention to leading tackler David Hawthorne. With other, and arguably better names like Curtis Lofton available, the priority would seem to be with the catalyst of the Seahawks entire defensive scheme in Bryant. The Seahawks ranked 2nd in the league in 2010 through 5 games in rush defense before Bryant went on IR; and ended up ranking a paltry 31st by seasons end.
