The Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks have built one of the most talented rosters in the NFL. Head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider have hit on multiple draft picks, re-signed core players on both sides of the ball and sprinkled in free-agent acquisitions along the way.

That's the only way the Seahawks will be able to retain talent and gear up for a second-straight Super Bowl run. With a current salary cap figure of $126,931,240 (via Spotrac), let's take a look at five different salaries Seattle should consider dumping during the offseason.
