Bob Condotta reports that the Seahawks have signed RFA DT Poona Ford to a two-year contract.
According to Tom Pelissero, Ford’s two-year contract is worth around $14 million with incentives. He receives over $4.4 million in 2021, which exceeds the second-round tender Seattle likely would have used on him.
This would prevent the Seahawks from having to tender Ford a restricted offer before tomorrow’s deadline.
Ford, 25, wound up going undrafted out of Texas back in 2018. He later signed a three-year contract with the Seahawks and managed to make the active roster the past three seasons.
Ford is currently a restricted free agent.
In 2020, Ford appeared in all 16 games for the Seahawks and recorded 40 tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble.
