The Seattle Seahawks re-signed kicker Steven Hauschka Friday afternoon. Hauschka joined the Seahawks after being claimed off waivers from the Denver Broncos before the start of the 2011 campaign. The 6-4, 210-pound kicker has converted 49 out of 57 field goals (.860) and 80 out of 82 PATs  in his two seasons with the club. Photo Credit: Seahawks.com Last season, Hauschka made 24 out of 27 field goals for a career-high 118 points and set the franchise-record with 14 consecutive games with a made field goal (10/9/11 – 9/16/12). In five seasons, Hauschka played in 53 games, converting 65 out of 79 field goals (.823), including a 54-yarder, and made 117 out of 120 PATs. Hauschka received his first taste of the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings in 2008, during the preseason. However, the Middlebury College grad spent time with the Baltimore Ravens (2008-2009), Atlanta Falcons (2009) and the Detroit Lions (2010).
