SEATTLE - Seattle Seahawks cornerback Shaquill Griffin has signed a three-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars that guarantees $29 million and allows for up to $44.5 million, the team announced Wednesday.
NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport and ESPN insider Adam Schefter first reported the news on Tuesday.
Rapoport says Seattle tried to keep Griffin, but the Jaguars closed the deal at the start of the NFL's free agent signing period.
His twin brother Shaquem, a linebacker for the Seahawks, is a restricted free agent who "has not been tendered by Seattle" yet, according to Schefter.
The Seahawks lost two more unrestricted free agents to Jacksonville - running back Carlos Hyde and receiver Phillip Dorsett.
Hyde agreed to a two-year $6 million deal with the Jags. Last season in Seattle, Hyde had 81 carries for 356 yards and 16 catches.
