The Seattle Seahawks have re-signed linebacker K.J. Wright and added guard Mike Iupati, according to reports.

Wright’s deal is for two years and $15.5 million, according to NFL Network. The move keeps the Seahawks’ linebacking corps intact for the 2019 season.

Iupati’s deal is for one year.

Wright, 29, has spent all eight years with Seattle after the team selected him in the fourth round of the 2011 draft. He missed 11 games last season with a knee injury. Wright had four consecutive seasons with 100-plus tackles before that, and he has career totals of 11.5 sacks and 10 forced fumbles.

Iupati played the past four seasons in Arizona after spending the first five seasons of his career with the San Francisco 49ers. The 31-year-old guard is a four-time Pro Bowler and made All-Pro in 2012. He has started all 114 games in his career.

The Seahawks continued to work on the interior of their offensive line by re-signing right guard D.J. Fluker to a two-year deal, with Fluker acknowledging his return on Twitter.

Fluker, who turned 28 on Wednesday, started nine of 10 games for Seattle last season after arriving on a one-year deal. He allowed just a half-sack, although he was whistled for nine penalties.
