Seahawks Sign Janikowski to a 1-Year Deal

Seahawks sign kicker Sebastian Janikowski

After spending the past 17 seasons with the Oakland Raiders, Pro Bowl kicker Sebastian Janikowski will reportedly remain in the west coast.

The Seahawks announced the signing of veteran kicker Sebastian Janikowski on Friday. He went on to enjoy a memorable 17-year run with the Raiders before missing the 2017 season with a back injury.

Janikowski could be a serviceable kicker for Seattle, which has had its struggles finding a reliable leg in the past two seasons. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the 40-year-old has agreed to a one-year deal to join the Seahawks. One of his most memorable kicks in Silver & Black was his then National Football League record-tying 63-yard field goal in Denver in 2011.

Janikowski departed as the Raiders' all-time leader in games played (268) and points (1,799). The Seahawks now have two kickers on their roster (the team signed Jason Myers to a reserve/futures contract in January).

The Seahawks are looking for a replacement for Blair Walsh, who missed eight of his 29 field goal attempts last season - including several that many fans felt directly led to losses.

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