Why the Seattle Seahawks missing out on free agent tight end Ben Watson matters.
Hawthorne Leads Seahawks in PBP
Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan earned a league-high $397,555, according to Brad Biggs of the National Football Post.
A formula is used to calculate each player's playing time percentage and salary cap number to distribute the $3,422,875 each Club was allotted this year. Players with high playing-time percentages, and low cap numbers, receive a larger share of the funds.
Young linebackers and defensive backs routinely do very well in this program, as they are usually earning close to league-minimum salaries and special teams plays are part of the playing-time percentage calculation.
Hawthorne earned $385,000 in base salary as he led the Seahawks with 116 tackles, including a team-high 10 for a loss. Hawthorne tied for the team lead with three interceptions in 2009, and posted four quarterback sacks and two forced fumbles.
An exclusive rights free agent this off-season, the Seahawks tendered a qualifying offer to Hawthorne on March 4.
