Britt tweeted his excitement about staying in Seattle.

Coach Pete Carroll said early Thursday that the sides were "really close" to finalizing a deal for Britt and the team announced later in the day that the deal was finished.

Britt was entering the final year of his rookie contract.

Last season, Britt changed positions again and played well at center. "He had an excellent season". He bounced around between tackle and guard before finally settling in at center past year, where he was named a Pro Bowl alternate. Really tough competitive guy and with all the homework that we did on him we think he has a chance to fit in really well in that regard.

"I think it's just recognition and acknowledgement of the player and the teammate that he's become for us". And also the fact that we're able to do it on the offensive line, I think it is important to note that.

"What I would say to you is, I don't know how anybody could have done a more extensive look into this", Carroll said.

Britt was a pet project of sorts for Cable, doing everything the offensive line needed over his first three seasons in the league. "John [Schneider, the team's general manager] started this quite some time ago and followed it throughout to make sure we knew exactly what was going on". Justin has done everything we need him to do, been a great team-mate.
