That was the best outcome he could have hoped to get

Absolutely, his agent must be a genius.

It is only 5.5M guaranteed with 1.4M in incentives this year and he can be cut with no guaranteed $$ after that.  Crazy how low these RBs are valued compared to lots of other positions. And I love the top line numbers the NFL team releases. It says 3 years 24M and Carson could easily make 1/4 that.

5.5 M guaranteed for a back to back 1000 yard seasons and one of the best YPC guys in the NFL makes his agent a genuis?

 

Think more. Post less.

Yeah, if you get into the weeds of the deal, the Seahawks made out pretty well.

Yeah, a good signing for him and that kinda puts a dent in my idea of Rashad Penny taking over the lead job. Penny is talented but there may still be some lingering questions on his health. Seahawks are covering their bases with respect to Penny being able to go full tilt and giving Carson 15 plus carries a game. Gotta throw DJ Dallas in there as well. Looks like Seattle could be running the ball more to help Wilson not get drilled into the ground.
