Bills agreed to terms with K Steven Hauschka, formerly of the Seahawks, on a four-year, $12.4-million contract.
The yearly value of the deal puts him squarely in the top 10 among kickers. Buffalo cut former kicker Dan Carpenter earlier this week, and Hauschka looked done in Seattle after the Seahawks brought in Blair Walsh in February. The owner of a career 87.2-percent conversion rate, Hauschka did struggle with extra points in 2016, but he is a quality addition for Buffalo. Thu, Mar 9, 2017 07:46:00 AM

The Seattle Times doesn’t expect the Seahawks to re-sign free agent Steven Hauschka.

Hauschka’s chances of returning took a hit after Seattle signed Blair Walsh. Despite a down year, Hauschka should rebound if he can cut back on his extra point misses. Hauschka’s 89.2 field-goal percentage ranked behind only Justin Tucker, Matt Bryant, and Ryan Succop.

ESPN’s John Clayton reports the Seahawks may soon look to extend K Steven Hauschka's contract.

Hauschka is in the final season of a three-year deal. He was one of the most accurate kickers in the league last year, converting 93.5 percent of his field goals and all six of his attempts from 50-plus. Hauschka is a candidate to be extended closer to training camp.

Seahawks agreed to terms with K Steven Hauschka to a three-year, $9.15 million contract.

The deal includes $3.35 million guaranteed. Hauschka has quietly emerged as one of the game's most reliable kickers, going 57-of-62 (91.9 percent) on field goals over the last two seasons. That includes an 11-of-12 mark from 40-49 yards out and a perfect 3-of-3 from 50+ last season. Hauschka's average annual salary of $3.05 million is in line with recent deals signed by Jets K Nick Folk and Panthers K Graham Gano. Hauschka was fantasy's No. 4 kicker last season, a ranking he won't have trouble repeating.

The Seahawks will not use their franchise tag on free agent K Steven Hauschka.

Hauschka is coming off an excellent season, but Seattle won't go the Nick Folk route with him, which would've guaranteed Hauschka $3.556 million. Seahawks GM John Schneider does business differently than the rest of the league, and may let Hauschka test the market with the replaceability of kickers in mind.

Free agent K Steven Hauschka has an "outside chance" to be franchise tagged.

Hauschka would cost $3.6 million if franchised, but the Seahawks are more likely to sign him to a multi-year deal. One of the league's most reliable kickers, Hauschka was a Pro Bowl alternate in 2013 and missed only two field goals all year. He turns 29 this offseason.

Free agent K Steven Hauschka is expected to re-sign with the Seahawks.

Hauschka has quietly established himself as one of the league's most reliable kickers. Over the last two seasons, he's gone 57-of-62 field goals (91.9 percent), including a 16-of-17 mark between 40-49 yards. Hauschka will get a raise on the one-year, $715,000 deal he signed last year.

Steven Hauschka has altered his conditioning routine to add length to his field goals.

Hauschka has never been a great a great kicker from 50-plus, but he's improving. He's 1-of-1 from that distance this season and was made three of them during the preseason. From inside 50 yards, Hauschka has gone an impressive 42-of-46 (91.3 percent) over the last two seasons. He's a good fantasy kicker in the right matchup, and this week's game in a dome against Atlanta's leaky defense certainly qualifies.

Seahawks re-signed K Steven Hauschka.

Hauschka, 28 in June, made 24-of-27 field goals last season, and he has been with the Seahawks for the past two years after bouncing around with three teams in three years. He doesn't have a huge leg, as he's just 4-of-10 from 50-plus yards out in his career. Hauschka also handles kickoff duties for Seattle.

The Seahawks are expected to re-sign free agent K Steven Hauschka.

710 ESPN considers free agent K Steven Hauschka the Seahawks' most likely candidate for the franchise tag.

Hauschka was 23-of-23 from inside 50 yards last season. Franchising him would cost $2.926 million, something the financially comfortable Seahawks can certainly live with. However, Hauschka went just 1-of-4 from 50-plus yards out last season and is 4-of-10 from that distance in his career. Perhaps coach Pete Carroll will want to bring in a bigger leg.

Seahawks placed K Steven Hauschka (calf) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Hauschka injured his calf during Sunday's Wild Card win in Washington. It wraps a career-best season that saw him go 24-of-27 on field goals in the regular season, including a 23-of-23 mark from 49 yards out or closer. The Seahawks will roll with veteran Ryan Longwell against the Falcons this week.
Wed, Jan 9, 2013 08:18:00 AM

Coach Pete Carroll clarified that K Steven Hauschka's injury is to his calf, not his ankle.

"You could see him limping out there," Carroll said. "But he made good kicks out there when we needed him." Punter Jon Ryan took over kickoff duties, and Hauschka was limited to field goals under 50 yards. Don't be surprised if the Seahawks bring in another kicker this week.

Seahawks K Steven Hauschka left Sunday's Wild Card round game versus the Redskins with an ankle injury.

Punter Jon Ryan handled the kickoff after the Seahawks' second-quarter touchdown, but Hauschka was able to connect on a 29-yard field goal just before halftime. It could get interesting if the game comes down to a long field goal attempt.
