Earlier this offseason, the Seattle Seahawks re-signed veteran quarterback Geno Smith to a one-year contract.
On Tuesday afternoon, ESPN’s Adam Schefter revealed the details of Smith’s contract with the team. “Seahawks are giving QB Geno Smith a one-year, $3.5 million deal that includes $500,000 guaranteed, plus another $3.5 million in incentives,” Schefter said.
Apparently, there was an issue within those details. According to the latest report from NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, Smith’s contract was “disapproved.”
“Seahawks QB Geno Smith’s contract was disapproved, per the transaction wire, but the issue will be fixed and the contract will go through,” Rapoport said.

It’s unclear what the issue is, but it sounds like the two sides will come to an agreement soon.
Smith saw limited action during the 2021 season after Russell Wilson went down with an injury. The 31-year-old completed 65 of 95 passes for 702 passing yards, five touchdowns, and one interception.
With Wilson gone, there is a chance for Smith to compete for the starting job. He’ll compete with former Denver Broncos quarterback Drew Lock and perhaps a rookie quarterback if the Seahawks take one with the No. 9 overall pick.
