Seahawks and Safety Bradley McDougald Agree to Contract Extension

The Seahawks are hoping that Bradley McDougald will have a big future in the Seahawks secondary, and Monday the team inked the safety to a new contract extension.

On Monday, the Seahawks made sure McDougald would be part of that nucleus going forward, signing the versatile safety to a multi-year contract extension just before the start of free agency.

McDougald, 27, joined the Seahawks last year after spending the first four years of his career in Tampa Bay, and despite being a somewhat under-the-radar signing, he was a player whom the Seahawks were very excited about when they acquired him last spring.

And McDougald indeed proved to be an important addition to the team in 2017, beginning the season as a key contributor on special teams while also playing as a third safety in “big nickel” packages, and finishing the season as a starter. One reason the Seahawks liked McDougald was his ability to play both safety spots, and he showed that versatility during the season, starting two games in place of Earl Thomas at free safety when Thomas had a hamstring injury, then finishing the year starting seven straight games for Kam Chancellor at strong safety after Chancellor sustained a season-ending neck injury.
