  Today, the Seattle Seahawks gave Doug Baldwin the contract that he deserved. Baldwin will now make a total of $46 mil over the next four seasons with $24.25 mil being guaranteed, according to Mike Garafolo. He is now the sixth-highest paid wide receiver in the game.

   In addition, Baldwin’s market was set all thanks to Allen Hurns and Keenan Allen, who both signed new deals this month. 

   Finally, the 27-year-old wide receiver had his best season in 2015 that opened up all of the talks for an extend stay in Seattle. He played in and started all 16 games. In those 16 games, he recorded 78 receptions while being targeted 103 times. He picked up 1,069 receiving yards and averaged 13.7 yards per catch. He found the end zone 14 times, which he was tied for first along with Allen Robinson and Brandon Marshall. It is more shocking that he achieved that goal, as Seattle is know more as a running team.
