Hauschka hit both of his field goal attempts Sunday against the Redskins.

Hauschka is now 6-of-7 on field goals for the season, though he has yet to attempt a kick from 50+ yards. His lone miss came from 46 yards out against the Broncos, but with the bye week under his belt, the 29-year-old could receive a good amount of chances the rest of the season playing for potent offense.

Seahawks agreed to terms with K Steven Hauschka to a three-year, $9.15 million contract.

The deal includes $3.35 million guaranteed. Hauschka has quietly emerged as one of the game's most reliable kickers, going 57-of-62 (91.9 percent) on field goals over the last two seasons. That includes an 11-of-12 mark from 40-49 yards out and a perfect 3-of-3 from 50+ last season. Hauschka's average annual salary of $3.05 million is in line with recent deals signed by Jets K Nick Folk and Panthers K Graham Gano. Hauschka was fantasy's No. 4 kicker last season, a ranking he won't have trouble repeating.

The Seahawks will not use their franchise tag on free agent K Steven Hauschka.

Hauschka is coming off an excellent season, but Seattle won't go the Nick Folk route with him, which would've guaranteed Hauschka $3.556 million. Seahawks GM John Schneider does business differently than the rest of the league, and may let Hauschka test the market with the replaceability of kickers in mind.

Free agent K Steven Hauschka has an "outside chance" to be franchise tagged.

Hauschka would cost $3.6 million if franchised, but the Seahawks are considered more likely to re-sign him to a multi-year deal. One of the league's most reliable kickers, Hauschka was a Pro Bowl alternate in 2013 and missed only two field goals all year. He turns 29 this offseason.

Steven Hauschka has altered his conditioning routine to add length to his field goals.

Hauschka has never been a great a great kicker from 50-plus, but he's improving. He's 1-of-1 from that distance this season and was made three of them during the preseason. From inside 50 yards, Hauschka has gone an impressive 42-of-46 (91.3 percent) over the last two seasons. He's a good fantasy kicker in the right matchup, and this week's game in a dome against Atlanta's leaky defense certainly qualifies.
