Drew Lock, the Seahawks backup quarterback, just played out the final year of a four-year, $7,010,817 contract.

Lock will be a free agent this offseason.

Drew Lock’s Salary

The Seattle Seahawks’ backup quarterback’s contract expired at the conclusion of this past season. In 2019, he signed a four-year contract with the Denver Broncos worth $7,010,817. He was sent to Seattle in 2022 as part of the blockbuster trade for Russell Wilson.

Drew Lock’s Cap Hit

The 26-year-old carried a cap hit of $1,451,021 in 2022. His next contract will determine his cap hit for the upcoming season.

Drew Lock’s Potential Extension

Since arriving in Seattle, Lock has taken a backseat to the Geno Smith. He spent the season watching from the sidelines as the Seahawks powered their way through a 9-8 season and lost to the 49ers on Wild Card Weekend. Interestingly enough, both quarterbacks’ contracts expired at the end of the season. While head coach Pete Carroll has expressed interest in keeping both in the program, only one will likely return in 2023.

Lock, who was a second-round pick in 2019, has only started 21 games during the course of his career. He’d be looking at a contract similar to other backups in the league, such as Case Keenum, who makes $6 million a year.
