The Seattle Seahawks have reworked the final year of left tackle Duane Brown’s contract, ESPN reported Tuesday.

The four-time Pro Bowl selection will receive a $7 million signing bonus and $4 million in salary for 2021, per ESPN.

Brown, 36, had been scheduled to earn $10 million in base salary and up to another $1 million in per-game roster bonuses. While the total compensation doesn’t change, he receives more money up front with the new arrangement.

Brown’s “hold-in” ended Monday when he returned to practice. Coach Pete Carroll pronounced him “ready to go” for Sunday’s season opener at Indianapolis.

A first-round pick by Houston in 2008, Brown has made 186 starts for the Texans (2008-17) and Seahawks. He was a first-team All-Pro selection in 2012 and made the Pro Bowls after the 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2017 campaigns.
