Lo’Jack Locked in for 5 years

Lawrence Jackson has agreed to terms with the Seattle Seahawks on a 5 year deal. There are no specifics to the contract, as it is still being formalized. But Jackson is on the field for the Hawks, assuring the deal is in the final stages. It appears to be a deal worth $11.5 million, with half the total in guarantees. The Seahawks made Jackson their first pick in the 2008 NFL draft.

Sedrick Ellis remains the only unsigned Saints rookie. The word out of New Orleans appears to be that contract talks have stalled. If the Saints can come to an agreement with their first round pick and get him into camp, with offseason moves (including the latest acquisition of Jeremy Shockey), they can pose a serious threat in the NFC.

Sam Baker also remains unsigned by the Atlanta Falcons, but negations are ongoing, and an announcement may come soon.
