The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to bring back defensive lineman Leonard Williams on a three-year contract worth $64.5 million, multiple reports said Monday.

Williams, 29, was dealt from the New York Giants to Seattle ahead of the 2023 trade deadline.

In nine seasons with the New York Jets (2015-19), Giants (2019-23) and Seahawks, the former sixth overall draft pick has racked up 511 tackles, 43.5 sacks, six forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries across 142 games (133 starts).

He was a Pro Bowl selection in 2016 when he had seven sacks for the Jets. His career-best season was 2020, when he tallied 11.5 sacks.
