Doug Baldwin and the Seattle Seahawks agreed to a contract extension that locks up the former undrafted wide receiver through the 2016 season.

Baldwin was a restricted free agent for 2014 and had a second-round tender placed on him by the club.

CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported the former Stanford wide receiver's two-year extension is worth $11 million in new money.

Baldwin was Seattle's top receiver as a rookie and after being slowed by injuries in 2012, had 50 catches for 778 yards in 2013. In the NFC title game against the 49ers, he had six catches for 106 yards. He had five catches for 66 yards and a touchdown in the Super Bowl rout of Denver.

  • The 49ers signed former USC center Marcus Martin to a four-year deal. He was a third-round draft pick (70th overall). The 49ers have signed all 12 of their draft choices.

  • San Diego signed first-round draft pick Jason Verrett, a cornerback from TCU, to a four-year deal.

  • Jacksonville line coach George Yarno was diagnosed with cancer. Coach Gus Bradley didn't disclose the type of cancer but said the 55-year-old Yarno won't take a leave of absence.

  • Commissioner Roger Goodell responded to criticisms by NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith, who contended a double standard exists when it comes to the league doling out punishments. Smith specifically named Indianapolis owner Jim Irsay. "The personal conduct policy applies to commissioners, owners, players, coaches," Goodell said. "There are several players we haven't taken action on, either."
