The Seattle Seahawks have agreed on a two-year deal with wide receiver Doug Baldwin, a league source told ESPN Thursday.

Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Baldwin, a restricted free agent, had been in negotiations with the Seahawks since the team placed a second-round tender on him that would have paid him about $2.2 million this season.

Although Baldwin had not signed the tender, he had said publicly that he would not hold out.

The new contract will reportedly allow him to be an unrestricted free agent in 2016.

Baldwin caught 50 passes for 778 yards and five touchdowns in 2013. He also had key receptions in both playoff games last year and also caught a touchdown in Super Bowl XLVIII.
