When will the Seahawks sign QB Jake Locker?

By JEFF LATZKE | 07/27/18 05:30pm PT Seattle Seahawks quarterback Jake Lockser’s agent has confirmed the team has signed QB Jake Laubach to a one-year contract.

Locker signed with the San Francisco 49ers in March, and the team released him in February.

“It’s a tremendous honor to announce Jake’s new deal with the Seattle Seahawks,” Locker’s agent Mike Bercovici said in a statement released by the team on Monday.

“The future is bright for Jake and he is very excited about the new chapter of his career in Seattle.”

Laubah, 28, was selected by the 49ers with the No. 19 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.

He spent two seasons with San Francisco before being cut by the Niners in October.

Locksers agent Joe Linta did not respond to an email from ESPN’s Adam Schefter seeking comment.

Lintas contract with the 49er franchise was not immediately clear.

Laubaches signing was the first to be announced in recent weeks.

The 49ers, who are expected to re-sign their starting quarterback, released him with three seasons left on his contract in March.

The NFL is set to begin a league-wide search for a new quarterback on Tuesday.
