Seattle signs OL Breno Giacomini to 2-year deal

The Seahawks and free agent offensive lineman Breno Giacomini

have agreed to a two-year contract extension after Giacomini proved

to be a valuable backup on Seattle’s offensive line.

The Seahawks confirmed the deal on Friday. According to the NFL

Players Association website, Giacomini will make $1.5 million in

base salary for the 2012 season and $3 million in 2013.

Giacomini played in 15 games and made eight starts on the

Seahawks offensive line last season, filling in at a variety of

spots after Seattle lost starters Russell Okung, James Carpenter

and John Moffitt to injuries. Giacomini made $600,000 in base

salary last season.

Giacomini is the first of Seattle’s 18 unrestricted free agents

to re-sign with the club.
