The Seahawks have picked up a $5 million option that will keep center Justin Britt under contract through 2020, according to a source. The option was included in the three-year, $27 million extension Britt signed last summer. Declining it would have voided the final year of the deal, making Britt a free agent after the 2019 season. That would have also meant his 2018 base salary jumping from $2.75 million to $7.75 million. With Seattle exercising the option, Britt instead receives that $5 million in the form of a bonus. His 2018 cap number remains $6.17 million.
