Britt had been in the final year of his rookie deal, and his new extension keeps him under contract with Seattle through the 2020 campaign. He'll be expected to continue in his role as the team's starting center.
Britt (ankle) is expected to play this week against the Panthers, Curtis Crabtree of UPI.com reports.
After starting every game this season, Britt was a game-time decision heading into Week 12. Although he was ultimately declared active, he ended up not playing. It sounds like the Seahawks just opted to be cautious with the lineman, and the expectation is that he should return to action this week.
Britt (ankle) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay.
Britt sprained his ankle last week against the Eagles and has missed the majority of practice this week. Rookie Joey Hunt will get the start if he ultimately can't play.
