WR Ben Obomanu signs a 3-year extension

Looks like Seattle has it's receiver duo locked up for the next, couple years. And all the hard work has paid off for wide receiver Ben Obomanu. The Seahawks announced that the 27-year-old has signed a three-year extension today.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The fifth-year pro annually struggled to make the roster, but this season cracked the starting lineup and had his best season as a pro, finishing with 30 receptions for 494 yards and a team-high four touchdowns this season.

Obomanu's 16.5 per catch average was among the league leaders with players with at least 30 catches.

Obomanu also played through pain this season, suffering a deep cut on his right hand that required several stitches but only forced him to miss one game. Obomanu also returned to the game against New Orleans last week after dislocating his shoulder.

Obomanu is the second Seattle player to sign a deal, with Mike Williams inking a three-year, $11.8 million deal at the end of the regular season.

Obomanu has a base salary of $1.1 million in 2010.
