Reports: Seahawks agree to deal with G Laken Tomlinson

Free agent guard Laken Tomlinson agreed to a one-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks, multiple media outlets reported Friday.

According to ESPN, the deal could pay Tomlinson as much as $4 million.

Tomlinson, 32, is headed to his fourth NFL team, but he has proven to be one of the NFL’s most reliable offensive lineman. In his nine-year career, the left guard has missed just one game (in 2017), and he has started every game since the beginning of the 2018 season.

The Lions used the 28th overall pick in the 2015 draft on Tomlinson, who spent two seasons in Detroit. He then played for the 49ers from 2017-21, making the Pro Bowl during his last year in San Francisco. The past two years, he played for the New York Jets.

The Seahawks have a vacancy at left guard after Damien Lewis, their starter at the position the past three years, exited in free agency to sign with the Carolina Panthers.

Per multiple reports, the Seahawks don’t have enough salary-cap space to accommodate a $4 million deal for Tomlinson, meaning more changes would be in order for the club to finalize the contract.
