Chester Pitts update with contract specifics
Posted by Danny O'Neil
Chester Pitts agreed to a one-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks. He could earn up to as much as $2 million under that contract.
The deal gives Seattle some depth along the offensive line, and depending upon Pitts' recovery from knee surgery perhaps even more than that.
Pitts underwent microfracture surgery after suffering a knee injury that sidelined him after two games
that last season. He has started in every one of the 114 NFL games he has played in, and more than that, he has played for Alex Gibbs, Seattle's new offensive line coach. He's versatile, able to play both guard and tackle.
We'll have to wait and see what Pitts is able to bring. After all, he is 31 and coming off a procedure that is similar in nature to the one Walter Jones never fully recovered from.
Seattle seemed to have settled on five starting linemen over the course of the offseason so we'll have to see where Pitts fits into that equation.
There is a need for depth along Seattle's line at both tackle and guard. Currently, Ray Willis, Joe Toledo and Mansfield Wrotto are among the first line of reserves at tackle.
