Seattle Seahawks sign Wide Receiver Doug Baldwin to a three-year, $13 million contract

Seattle Seahawks sign Wide Receiver Doug Baldwin to a three-year, $13 million contract.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin gets $9 million over the first two years. Not a bad haul for the former undrafted free agent out of Stanford. Entering his age-26 season, there isn’t much room for statistical growth for Baldwin in one of the league’s run-heaviest offenses.

Baldwin has now produced two solid seasons in his first three years in the league. Baldwin recorded 51 receptions for 788 yards and 4 touchdowns as a rookie but had a hard time with a sophomore slump and dropped to 29 receptions for 366 yards and 3 touchdowns to then bounce back as a 3rd-Year wide out in 2013 to produce 50 receptions for 778 yards and 5 touchdowns. Baldwin lead the Seahawks receiving corp in 2013 with  73 targets but as mentioned above, Harvin will return from a concussion as well as a hip injury. 

With wide receiver Percy Harvin returning to health, Baldwin is more No.4 wide receiver than a No.3 wide out. He should play every down, though its unknown who Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will count on as his No.1 target. At OTAs, Baldwin is practicing at Z receiver with Harvin in the slot. We can expect 3rd-year wide receiver Jermaine Kearse to see a larger work load with down the field attempts with dynamic receiver Golden Tate moving on to the Lions.
