Seahawks Re-Sign CB DeShawn Shead & TE Luke Willson


The Seattle Seahawks have reached agreements to re-sign CB DeShawn Shead and TE Luke Willson on Friday, according to Danny O’Neil.

  • Adam Caplan reports that Willson has agreed to terms on a one-year deal worth up to $3 million.
  • According to Ian Rapoport, Shead gets a one-year, $1.5 million deal from the Seahawks with $1 million guaranteed.

Shead is coming off of a torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee that he suffered during the divisional round of the playoffs.

Shead, 28, originally signed on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Portland State back in 2012. He returned to the Seahawks on a one-year exclusive rights contract last year and was set to be a restricted free agent, but Seattle did not tender him a contract.

In 2016, Shead appeared in 15 games for the Seahawks and recorded 81 tackles, one interception, a forced fumble and 14 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 40 cornerback out of 119 qualifying players.

Willson, 27, is a former fifth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $2,338,532 rookie contract with the Seahawks and was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his career.

In 2016, Willson appeared in 11 games for the Seahawks and caught 15 passes for 129 yards receiving and two touchdowns.  Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 42 tight end out of 64 qualifying players.
