During an interview with ESPN 710 Seattle “Wyman, Mike and Moore”, WR Doug Baldwin stated that he would not hold out for a new contract this offseason.
Baldwin, 25, was given a second-round restricted free agent tender this offseason which amounts equates to a one-year, $2.187 million contract. Baldwin still has not signed his tender which does allow for the possibility that he could sign a long-term contract before the season starts. Although Baldwin has not signed the tender yet, he stated that he is “not focused on trying to get leverage” for a new contract.
Baldwin currently is part of what seems to be a crowded receiving corps with WR Percy Harvin, Sidney Rice, and Jermaine Kearse, however, it does seem like the Seahawks should expect Baldwin to be available for OTA’s, training camp, and the season.
