Seahawks Sign K Jason Myers & FB Jalston Fowler To Futures Deals


Field Yates reports that the Seahawks signed K Jason Myers and FB Jalston Fowler to futures contracts on Wednesday.

So far, the Seahawks have signed eight players to futures contracts including:

  1. OT Isaiah Battle
  2. G Willie Beavers
  3. QB Trevone Boykin
  4. CB Alex Carter
  5. WR Cyril Grayson Jr
  6. DE Noble Nwachukwu
  7. K Jason Myers
  8. FB Jalston Fowler

Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times recently mentioned that the Seahawks were exploring available kickers with one possibility being Myers, so this doesn’t come as a big surprise.

Myers, 26, wound up signing on with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent back in 2015 and has managed to make the team the past three seasons. He was in the final year of his three-year, $1.575 million contract and set to make a base salary of $615,000 for the 2017 season when the Jaguars waived him a few months ago.

In 2017, Myers has appeared in six games and converted 11 of 15 field goal attempts (73.3 percent) to go along with 15 of 17 extra point tries (88.2 percent).
