CB Jeremy Lane agrees to terms on new deal with Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks bolstered their secondary Wednesday, agreeing to terms with cornerback Jeremy Lane on a multiyear deal.

The team might still make additional moves in free agency and the draft, but Lane stands as the favorite to be the starting right corner opposite Richard Sherman.

Lane, who will be 26 when next season begins, has made six career starts but played in 41 games for the Seahawks. A former sixth-round pick, he has been in the Seahawks' system for four years.

Lane also offers the Seahawks flexibility, because he can play on the outside and in nickel.

The team has a projected starting secondary of Sherman, Lane, free safety Earl Thomas and strong safety Kam Chancellor signed through the 2017 season. Sherman, Lane and Thomas are all in the fold through 2018.
