Giacomini, 26, was a fifth-round draft pick in 2008 by the Green Bay Packers, chosen out of Louisville. The Seahawks acquired him in September 2010, claiming him off Green Bay’s practice squad.
He started eight games at right tackle for the Seahawks last season, including the final seven after first-round draft pick James Carpenter suffered a season-ending knee injury.
