Seahawks, Max Unger Agree To Multi-Year Extension

The Seattle Seahawks will break ground on their 2012 season with the start of training camp this weekend, and already getting down to business on the 2013 free agency period, as the team is reporting the signing of center Max Unger to a multi-year extension.

Seattle drafted Unger in the second-round of the 2009 NFL Draft, 49th overall, and he has started 32 games for the team thus far. Unger was on the line in 15 games last season, helping anchor an offensive line that improved throughout the year and whose rushing attack was led by Marshawn Lynch.

GM John Schneider was very pleased with the new deal:

"Pete [Carroll] and I are excited to lock up a young core leader on our offense," said General Manager John Schneider. "Max's consistent and professional approach to his job transcends the locker room and the huddle."

Now Unger and the Seahawks can get back to business on the field instead of the meeting room.
