Quarterback Geno Smith will sign a one-year contract worth $7 million with the Seattle Seahawks, NFL Network reported on Thursday.

Smith, 31, started three games last season for the Seahawks while Russell Wilson was sidelined with a finger injury. Overall, Smith saw action in four games and passed for 702 yards, five touchdowns and one interception.

With Wilson traded to Denver in the offseason, the Seahawks’ quarterback room consists of former Bronco Drew Lock, Jacob Eason and Smith.

Smith, 31, went 1-2 as a starter last season and is 13-21 over his NFL career. He was a second-round draft choice by the New York Jets in 2013 and made 29 starts over his first two seasons.

Overall, Smith has passed for 6,917 yards, 34 touchdowns and 37 interceptions in 45 games with the Jets (2013-16), New York Giants (2017), Los Angeles Chargers (2018) and Seahawks (2019-21).
