NorthwestFootball.net has confirmed that the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms with sixth round…
Seahawks Sign S Courtney Greene
Greene (6-0, 205) was chosen with the 245th pick of the 2009 NFL Draft after being named All-Big East as a senior and starting 51 games during his career at Rutgers.
Greene is the first Seahawks draft choice to agree to terms on a contract. He received a signing bonus of nearly $43,000 and has base salaries of $310,000 (2009), $395,000 (2010), $480,000 (2011), and $565,000 (2012).
The 6-0, 212-pound safety was the first of three seventh-round selections for the Seahawks. Greene won first-team All-Big East honors in 2008, and made more than 100 tackles in two of his first three seasons as a starter. Like many Rutgers players, Greene struggled early on in the 2008 season, but turned it around late. Once thought to be a top-75 pick, Greene could be a steal for the Seahawks if he lives up to the top end of his potential.
