KIRKLAND, Wash. (AP) -Seahawks franchise player Josh Brown has signed his tender offer worth $2,078,000 - the average of the top five paid kickers in the NFL - after the team could not reach a long-term deal with him.
The Seahawks designated Brown as their franchise player in February, to keep from losing one of the NFL's best clutch kickers as a free agent. Another team would have had to surrender two first-round draft choices to Seattle had it signed him.
Brown won four games last season in the final seconds. Some of his teammates called him their team's MVP in 2006.
While using the franchise tag on kickers is rare, it's the cheapest of all positions. Indianapolis kicker Adam Vinatieri was tagged twice while with the New England Patriots.
Brown was 25 for 31 on field goal attempts during the 2006 season. He won games against St. Louis twice, Detroit and hit a 50-yarder on the final play of a win at Denver. Over the past two seasons, Brown has six game-winning kicks.
The seventh-round pick of the Seahawks in 2003 has made 79 percent of his career field goals.
