Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin signed a two-year contract extension on May 29.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin signed a three-year contract extension on May 29. 

Clare Farnsworth of the Seahawks' official website wrote more about the development: 

"Angry Doug Baldwin was smiling, and for good reason. 

"Baldwin, who led the Seahawks in receptions as a rookie free agent in 2011 and was the second-leading receiver on the Super Bowl championship team last season, signed a new contract Thursday. The deal was to be announced in a 1 p.m. news conference at Virginia Mason Athletic Center. 

"Baldwin had been tendered as a restricted free agent in March, but his new contract adds two more years to the deal. 

"'Obviously I'm extrmely blessed and fortunate to be in this situation,' Baldwin said moments after signing his contract. 'But at the same time, this is not the end of anything. To me, it's not really accomplishing anything. It just comes with the territory.

"'My ultimate goal is to be in the Hall of Fame. So this is a stepping stone to get there.'"

"Baldwin signed with the Seahawks after not being selected in the 2011 NFL Draft, and has exceeded the expectations of most -- if not his own.

"He caught 51 passes for 788 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie, making him the first undrafted rookie to lead his club in receptions and receiving yards since Bill Groman of the Houston Oilers in 1960.

"Baldwin missed two games because of shoulder and ankle injuries in 2012, when he caught 29 passes for 366 yards and three TDs. Last season, he started the final nine games at flanker after Sidney Rice was placed on injured reserve and responded with 50 catches for 778 yards and five TDs in the regular season.

"Baldwin as the team's leading receiver in the postseason with 13 catches for 202 yards -- including six catches for 106 yards in the NFC Championship Game and a TD catch in the Super Bowl."

ESPN's Jim Trotter reports on the financial terms of the deal. 

"The Seattle Seahawks locked up another core player by agreeing to a two-year contract extension with wide receiver Doug Baldwin. 

"Financial terms were not disclosed, but a source told ESPN's Terry Blount the deal is for three years at $13 million with $9 million guaranteed.

"Baldwin was scheduled to make $2.2 million this season as a restricted free agent. The new deal allows Baldwin to hit unrestricted free agency after the 2016 season, when he'll be entering his seventh year in the league. 

"The contract is in line with the Seahawks' philosophy of signing productive young players to relatively short-term deals. Their thinking: A shorter contract rewards a player financially while also serving as an incentive for a shot at another lucrative extension when the deal expires. 

"In April, safety Earl Thomas, coming off his third Pro Bowl appearance in his first four seasons, signed a four-year, $40 million extension that included $27.75 million in guarantees. 

"Nearly two weeks later, cornerback Richard Sherman, who had a league-high 20 interceptions in his first three seasons, signed a four-year, $56 million extension that reportedly includes $40 million in guarantees."

With this, The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta asked Baldwin if he was tempted to test the free-agent market. 

"Of course, but ultimately it comes back to what you value as a human being, as a person. Obviously I'm very excited to have a little extra money in my pocket, that's huge, but I put a lot of emphasis and value on being in an organization that I love.

"Being next to one of my teammates that I love, that's my family, and being in this situation looking at that, I value that more so than the opportunity to go to unrestricted free agency. 

"Like I said it all comes back down to what you value. In this game, your value is determined on the amount of money that they give you, but necessarily for me, the value that I wanted to get out of it, that varied. 

"It was necessarily just the money. It was the fact that I was able to stay here with an organization that I love, and teammates that I love." 

Fransworth also spoke with Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, who is all praises for Baldwin. 

 

"Doug has been a tremendous player. When you go back and look at the last few years, and look at the significant plays that have happened, he's been a big part in a lot of big stuff. He continues to always be at the front of making everything happen. 

"He did it again today. He had a great day today. He's just such a great worker and such a disciplined competitor that he brings it every chance he gets and it shows."
