K.J. Wright will re-sign with the Seahawks, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Rapoport adds the deal is for two years and is worth up to $15.5 million.

Wright has been a staple to Seattle’s linebacking corp over the last year, where he has spent his entire career. This was his first time being in the free agent market, and decided to stay home.

The 29-year-old missed 11 games due to a knee injury in 2018 but remains a tackling menace when healthy. Prior to last year, Wright had a string of four straight seasons of 100-plus tackles.

The Seahawks may have the best LB in the game in Bobby Wagner, and now has signed Kendricks, who will be on the team depending on his legal issues.

After letting go of Earl Thomas it was very important for the Seahawks to sure up the rest of their roster on defense.
