Earlier this week, Seahawks general manager John Schneider said Janikowski was planning to visit Seattle.

Janikowski, 40, spent 17 years with Oakland before missing the 2017 season with a back injury.

Janikowski was the No. 17 overall pick in the 2000 draft, and has played his entire career with the Raiders. He’s broken a slew of kicking records, and holds the record for most games played as a Raider.

The Seahawks are looking for a replacement for Blair Walsh, who missed eight of his 29 field goal attempts last season – including several that many fans felt directly led to losses.

Seattle signed free agent kicker Jason Myers to a futures contract soon after the season ended.
