C Justin Britt agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension with the Seattle Seahawks, multiple outlets reported on Thursday. The deal is worth $27 million with Britt collecting $13.25 million in the first year, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Britt started 16 games as a rookie at right tackle after being selected with a second-round pick in the 2014 draft. The 26-year-old was later shuffled to guard and then center, where he started 15 games a season ago.
RB Thomas Rawls will sit out Friday’s preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings with an ankle injury. Coach Pete Carroll made the announcement on Thursday and named Eddie Lacy as the team’s starter for that contest. Rawls was given the nod ahead of Lacy for last week’s preseason opener against the Los Angeles Chargers. He rushed two times for five yards.
