Report: Seahawks sign ex-Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported Janikowski's deal with the Seahawks.

The 40-year-old Janikowski, who was told by the Raiders two months ago he wouldn't be returning to Oakland for his 18th season, will replace now free-agent kicker Blair Walsh in Seattle.

Janikowski is signing a one-year deal.

Janikowski was the No. 17 overall pick in the 2000 draft, and has played his entire career with the Raiders.

Janikowski missed the entire 2017 season with back problems, but was one of the more effective kickers in the league for years before that, particularly from long range. He would end as Oakland's all-time leader in games played (268) and points scored (1,799) while finishing with an National Football League record 55 field goals of 55 yards or more.

The Seahawks also signed Jason Myers in the offseason, but Janikowski will likely have the advantage going into training camp.

Janikowski, who was raised in Poland and moved to the United States when he was 16, is a career 80% field goal kicker, converting on 414 of his 515 attempts.

In Seattle, Janikowski will work with Brian Schneider, who was his special teams coach in Oakland for two seasons from 2007 to 2008.
