3 Seattle Seahawks set to earn performance raises...


Three Seattle Seahawks – cornerback Shaquill Griffin, running back Chris Carson and safety Tedric Thompson – will earn a hefty raise heading into the 2020 season.

Per the NFL’s proven performance escalator, the trio’s base salary will increase to $2.147 million dollars, up from $767,000 for Griffin and $735,000 for each Carson and Thompson.

The PPE kicks in for any player entering the fourth year of their contract who was drafted between rounds three and seven and who played in 35 percent of the team’s offensive or defensive snaps in two of the last three years, or 35 percent of the team’s total snaps across the same period.

Carson suffered a season-ending injury in Week 16 but rushed for 1,230 yards and seven touchdowns last year, more than proving his worth as a former seventh round pick.

Griffin made his first Pro Bowl appearance on the heels of an excellent season, where he finished third in the league with 14 pass breakups.

Thompson began the year as the team’s starting free safety, but struggled mightily in the role before going on the injured reserve in late October with a shoulder injury.

The salary bump is non-guaranteed, which won’t be an issue for Carson or Griffin but could be for Thompson, who is not expected to be a starter next season and could be a cut-candidate in order to save the Seahawks a little over $2 million dollars in cap space.
