In 2011/12 Steven Hauschka played 16 games. He was 34/34 on XP's, and 25/30 on FG attempts, including two of more than 50 yards.
A nice start for the guy that gave Pete Carroll and John Schneider a reason to cut former Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Jeff Reed in the Seahawks 2012 training camp, after he'd (we thought) won the job.
On Monday the Seahawks incumbent kicker signed his one-year qualifying tender from the Seahawks, according to the player-salary database on the NFL Players Association Web site where his 2012 salary is listed at $1.26 million.
PER Danny O'Neil of the Seattle Times,
File this little transaction away in the corner reserved for other moves that stand as little more than foregone conclusions. Hauschka was a restricted free agent, but the deadline has passed for him to sign an offer sheet from another team. At that point, his return was largely academic.
Hauschka will have camp competition in 2012 from UDFA signing Carson Wiggs out of Purdue.
Wiggs ranks first on Purdue career field goal percentage at .715 (37-51) and third with 37 field goals. He owns the top four longest field goals in school history (59, 55, 53 and 52).
Name Steven Hauschka

After this past weekend’s NFL draft, it’s obvious that the Seattle Seahawks will have a quarterback controversy going into training camp this season. General manager John Schneider clearly stated that the position isn’t “set in stone.”
“We don’t exactly have our quarterback position set in stone for the long run,” said John Schneider.

Some way, somehow out of all the alleged bad boys with character issues in this year’s draft, Bruce Irvin was the most coveted acquisition.
Publicly jaws dropped when the Seattle Seahawks took him the first round. Beyond his personal issues Irvin was seen as project player that can do one thing well and that’s speed rush the passer.

Get to know Russell Wilson
The Seattle Seahawks wowed some people and had others guessing for a good portion of the 2012 NFL Draft. Many choices were questioned, but there has been 1 unanimous stellar pick as reported by every “expert” and pundit in the masses.
That unanimous popular pick was the Seahawks third round selection.
In the 3rd round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Seattle...
In an effort to understand what the Raiders are likely to do on offense this year I took a look at Seattle Seahawks games from 2009. Seattle in 2009 was the last year that Raiders new OC Greg Knapp was an offensive coordinator. He served as QB coach in Houston in both 2010 and 2011 before returning to Oakland for this next season.Knapp was previously designated offensive coordinator...
Get to know Bobby Wagner
The Seattle Seahawks wheeled and dealed like they normally do in this year’s NFL Draft. They started with 6 draft picks and ended up with 10. The team had a few holes to fill in the draft with Linebacker being a big concern. The Seahawks augmented that issue by drafting a monster of a linebacker.
With the 47th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks...

New Seahawks caught on film
The consensus was the Seattle Seahawks came into the 2012 NFL draft needing a pass rusher, a linebacker, a backup running back, some offensive line depth, and a split end.
Pete Carroll and John Schneider nearly pulled it off.
We suffered for five long years watching Tim Ruskell make picks.
In these 2 I trust
Isn’t it nice to not have to see Ruskell...
