Adam Schefter of NFL.com is reporting that offensive tackle Ray Willis has re-signed with the Seattle Seahawks. The deal is for two years, but the amount of money has not been disclosed.
The deal has not been confirm by the Seahawks.
Willis, 26, is the first Seattle free agent re-signed by the team. He was drafted by Seattle out of Florida State in the the fourth round of the 2005 draft. Willis started 10 games for Seattle in 2008. And with Walter Jones (microfracture knee surgery), Mike Wahle (shoulder), Sean Locklear (toe) and Chris Spencer (back) all returning from he injured reserve list last season, Willis adds much-needed depth on the offensive line with his ability to play both tackle and guard.
Signing Willis also falls in line with the Seattle's philosophy this offseason of filling needs through free agency, thereby giving the team more flexibility entering the draft.
Willis took visits to Oakland and Washington, but apparently found the best deal back in Seattle.
