Terry Blount of ESPN.com believes theirs an “outside chance” the Seahawks will use the franchise tag on kicker Steven Hauschka this offseason.
One of the best kickers in the NFL coming off his best season as a Pro Bowl alternate. He missed only two field goals all season, and one of those was a block. He also improved his depth on kickoffs. There’s an outside chance the Seahawks would consider a franchise tag with Hauschka, which would cost $3.6 million, but they are more likely to try to sign him to a multi-year deal.
Hauschka had an incredible season after converting 33 of 35 field goal attempts in 2013.
