ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that former Seattle Seahawks tight end John Carlson has agreed to terms with the
Seattle Seahawks Minnesota Vikings.
Vikings reached agreement with former Seahawks tight end John Carslon on a five-year, $25 million deal.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 14, 2012
Schefter reports it’s a five-year, $25 million deal. Adam Caplan of Fox Sports reports $11 million of the contract is guaranteed.
That’s a pretty good deal for someone who missed the entire 2011 season because of shoulder surgery. And obviously the Seahawks weren’t willing to commit to that kind of contract with Zach Miller already in the fold. So Carlson returns home. He grew up in nearby Litchfield, Minn.
