The Seahawks re-signed center Ethan Pocic, meaning his best season in Seattle wasn't also his last.

Pocic, a second-round pick in 2017, has played multiple positions in his four years in Seattle, including starting 11 games at left and right guard as a rookie, but he found a home at center last year and started 14 games, playing the best football of his young career.

"Ethan Pocic has been tremendous for us," quarterback Russell Wilson said late last season. "… He's been great all year for us when he's been in there, that's been huge for us."

Pocic came into camp last year competing for the job with free-agent addition B.J. Finney, and he was able to win that job, securing his first full-time starting job. His re-signing means the Seahawks will retain four of their five starting linemen from last year—left guard Mike Iupati retired—though as always there can and will be competition for jobs in camp.
