T.J. Houshmandzadeh and the Seattle Seahawks have agreed on a 5-year contract, according to media reports Monday.
Citing unidentified sources, ESPN.com, The NFL Network and the Seattle Post Intelligencer reported on their Web sites that the former Cincinnati Bengals receiver's deal is for $40 million and includes $15 million in guarantees.
The 31-year-old Houshmandzadeh has caught 204 passes in the last two seasons. Seattle didn't have a wide receiver catch more than Bobby Engram's 47 last season.
The Seahawks had seven injuries at the position while sliding to a 4-12 finish in 2008.
