GM John Schneider: Seahawks "Pleased To Reward" Doug Baldwin With Contract Extension

The Seahawks signed wide receiver Doug Baldwin to a four-year contract extension on Tuesday night.

Renton, Wash. - The Seattle Seahawks have signed Doug Baldwin to a contract extension running through the 2020 season, the team announced today.

"On behalf of Mr. Allen, coach Carroll and the entire Seahawks family, we are pleased to reward a player of Doug's caliber and extend him through the 2020 season," said Executive VP/General Manager John Schneider. "We identified Doug as a key player in our 2017 unrestricted class and as we continue to push to be a consistent championship caliber team, we are committed to keeping as many of our core players together as long as we possibly can."

Baldwin set career-highs in receptions (78), yards (1,069) and touchdowns (franchise-record 14) in 2015, becoming the seventh player in franchise history to record a 1,000-yard season, while tying for the NFL lead in touchdowns. He became the third player in NFL history (Cris Carter, Calvin Johnson) to catch at least two touchdown passes in four consecutive games and tied Jerry Rice's record for the most touchdown receptions in a four-game span (10) last season.

Signed as an undrafted free agent in 2011, he has started 46 of 78 games played, with 274 receptions for 3,826 yards and 29 touchdowns. In the postseason, he has started eight of 10 games played, with 39 receptions for 518 yards and four touchdowns.
