Former San Francisco 49ers defensive end Kerry Hyder is signing a three-year, $16.5 million contract with the Seattle Seahawks, his agent announced Tuesday.

The bump in pay is a significant one for Hyder, who signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the 49ers prior to the 2020 season.

Hyder, 29, made the most of his playing time last season, recording career-high totals in tackles (49) and sacks (8.5). He started 14 of the 16 games in which he played.
