Backup offensive tackle Breno Giacomini inks 2-year deal
First reported by Brian McIntyre, the Seattle Seahawks confirmed the team signed offensive lineman Breno Giacomini to a multi-year deal.
Giacomini who I have joked all year is 1/3 of the European offensive line movement in Seattle (McQuistan + Jeanpierre) is the first Seahawks free agent signed by the team so far during the 2012 NFL offseason.
That just leaves Seattle with 22 free agents. 17 of who are unrestricted, three restricted and two exclusive rights free agents.
According to NFLPA records, Giacomini will make base salaries of $1.5 million the upcoming season and $3 million 2013.
“I want to be here,” he said. “I like the way this is headed. I like Coach (Tom) Cable and the offensive staff and Pete (head coach Pete Carroll), so I hopefully I’m here next year.”

Good move by the Seahawks. He was exceptionally clutch last season in filling in for the injury plagued line. Hope he doesn't need to step up like that again, but it's nice to know that if it comes to that, there is a rock waiting to jump in there.
