Reed Signs Four-Year Deal

by: Mike Parker

Former Oregon DE Nick Reed has agreed to terms with the Seahawks, signing a four-year deal today that includes a signing bonus of $41,500. Nice chunk of change for a 7th-round pick.

Reed joins Mike Teel and Courtney Greene as the three Seahawks to sign contracts this week. It's good to see these contracts getting done early. And yes, I goofed and forgot about Reed when I mentioned Cameron Morrah might've been the next to sign. But with Reed's deal in the books, we can look for Morrah to be next on the list.

The more late-round picks they sign now, the closer they can get to securing long-term deals with the big fish, i.e. Unger and Curry. I for one will feel a lot better after Curry's signature is inked before the pads go on at training camp, but this is a good enough start.
