Long snapper Gresham re-ups with Seahawks

Seahawks long snapper Clint Gresham Friday agreed to a three-year contract extension. The 28-year-old Texas Christian alum, who has been with the franchise for the past five seasons, made the announcement on his Instagram account. The Seahawks claimed Gresham off waivers from New Orleans Aug. 1, 2010.

A native of Corpus Christie, TX., Gresham enrolled at the University of Oklahoma before transferring to TCU. He graduated in 2009 and signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent.

In 80 games with the Seahawks, Gresham has never missed contest since signing. He is the third unrestricted free agent to re-sign with the club, following TE Anthony McCoy (March 8) and DT D’Anthony Smith (March 19).
