Best Value Contract
QB Russell Wilson
Four years, $2.99 million
Getting drafted in the third round doesn't mean you are guaranteed to even start a single game in your career in the NFL. However, Russell Wilson not only started every game his rookie season, he beat out a high-priced free agent and helped his team win 11 games in the regular season and a Wild Card Weekend game.
He's proven his mettle as a franchise quarterback in just his rookie season with a 64.1 percent completion percentage for 3,118 yards passing, 26 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He also had 94 runs for 489 yards to complement his passing.
A franchise quarterback for under $3 million over his first four years, though? Sign me up and give me the cap to spend on weapons for that franchise quarterback before he asks for a new deal after his third year.
Worst Value Contract
QB Matt Flynn
Three years, $19.5 million
The best- and the worst-valued players at the exact same position? In this case, it makes more than enough sense. Matt Flynn was brought in as the guy who should have started for the Seahawks all season as their quarterback.
However, he only played 38 snaps all season. He was beat out by a rookie third-round pick who was considered to be too short by NFL teams to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. It's OK, though. The Seahawks should be able to trade Flynn to a team that will be willing to put him on the field this offseason.
