Sebastian Janikowski, Seahawks agree to deal

Former Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski has found a new home.

Earlier this offseason, the Oakland Raiders would release the 18-year veteran after 17 seasons as their kicker.

Janikowski joins Jason Myers as one of two kickers on Seattle's roster competing for the job that was held last season by Blair Walsh, who remains a free agent. ESPN reported it as a one-year deal. Georgio Tavecchio performed well for the Raiders this past season as a replacement for Janikowski, whose back injury forced him to miss the entire 2017 season.

Oakland Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski (11) and placeholder Marquette King (7) score a field goal in the first quarter of their National Football League game against the San Diego Chargers at the Coliseum in Oakland, Calif., on Sunday, Oct. 9, 2016. He nailed a 63-yarder in 2011, which tied the National Football League record at the time.

Janikowski departed as the Raiders' all-time leader in games played (268) and points (1,799).

The only kicker now on Seattle's roster is Jason Myers, who was signed to a futures contract in January.

Janikowski, whose 55 field goals of at least 50 yards are an National Football League record, missed only four games in his career until last season, two as a rookie, one in 2001 and another in 2011.
