When the Seahawks last year bought Duane Brown in trade with the Houston Texans, General Manager John Schneider said he wanted to end his career in Seattle with the left-wing attacker.
On Saturday, the sites made progress.
Ifl Rapoport of NFL Network reported that the Seahawks and Brown had approved the terms of a $ 36.5 million three-year contract renewal after sources were informed of the deal. Pages have been working on it for weeks, Rapoport added.
Pro Football Talk reported on the development for the first time. The Seahawks later announced the extension .
Brown entered the final year of his contract, which was worth $ 9.75 million. Now he will be in Seattle through the 2021 season.
The Seahawks acquired Brown at the end of October along with a fifth round bought in exchange for a second round in 2019 and a third round in 2018.  Brown immediately improved one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL on his arrival in Seattle. The left tackle finished the year with a pass-blocking efficiency of 97.0, seventh fastest among tackles in the NFL last season, according to Pro Football Focus.
Turning 33-year-old next month, Brown remains one of the better blind blockers in a league that owns a lack of credible left tackles. The Seahawks bet on the 11-year-old professional who will continue his high game for the foreseeable future. The long-term health of Russell Wilson depends on it.
