Seahawks reportedly sign former Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski

Seahawks reportedly sign former Raiders K Sebastian Janikowski

Janikowski could be a serviceable kicker for Seattle, which has had its struggles finding a reliable leg in the past two seasons.

The Seattle Seahawks have officially signed free agent and longtime Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski, as initially reported by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that it is a one-year deal. Georgio Tavecchio performed well for the Raiders this past season as a replacement for Janikowski, whose back injury forced him to miss the entire 2017 season. He's broken a slew of kicking records, and holds the record for most games played as a Raider. During his tenure in Oakland, Janikowski set an National Football League record with 55 field goals from 50 yards or longer.

In the seventh, he popped out to shortstop but flipped his bat into the air and did not initially run out of the box. Baez said that any apologies that he makes are to his teammates and his manager, not to another team.

Former Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski has found a new home.

Blair Walsh had a disappointing stint as Seattle's kicker last spring and wasn't retained. Prior to that, he spent 17 years with the Raiders, knocking down 80.4 percent of his field goal attempts and 98.9 percent of his extra points. Seattle signed former Jaguar Jason Myers earlier this offseason, so Janikowski will have competition to make the roster.

In joining the Seahawks, Janikowski will work with a familiar face in Brian Schneider, who was the Raiders special teams coach from 2007-08.
