The Seattle Seahawks are keeping a key piece to their offense from last year's playoff team.

Fluker's deal reportedly is for two years while Iupati's is for one year. In other words, Seattle management is familiar with a player who has spent his entire career in the NFC West.

Guard J.R. Sweezy was a mainstay on the Seattle Seahawks offensive line anchored a mini-dynasty in the mid-2010s.

"They're a winning team", Iupati said in the team release. It's close to home, and Mike Solari is also one of the biggest reasons I wanted to come here because he was my coach in San Fran. Iupati will be 32 years old when the 2019 seasons starts.


Wright will re-sign with the Seahawks, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

The Seahawks added outside linebacker Mychal Kendricks to their defense during the 2018 season to help out with the absence of K.J. Wright, who was dealing with knee issues.

"#UnfinishedBusiness" was among the hashtags Fluker included in a picture that he tweeted after news broke of his deal to remain in Seattle.

The Seahawks' offensive line made major strides on the ground last season, helping Seattle's three-headed rushing attack of running backs Chris Carson, Mike Davis and Rashaad Penny amass over 2,000 total rushing yards at a 4.7-yards-per-carry clip. He left for the Buccaneers in free agency in the spring of 2016, and after an injury-riddled tenure in Tampa Bay, re-signed with Seattle on a one-year deal in 2018.
