The Seahawks clearly have underpaid players on their team (like Lockett, Bennett, Chancellor), but if you look deeply, there’s not really one overpaid player. Bleacher Reports Story has the Seahawks as the only team without an overpaid player.

The Seattle Seahawks have won eight playoff games during the Pete Carroll era. That includes winning Super Bowl XLVIII and making it to the title game again in 2015. That success always leads to escalating paychecks as a team has to foot the bills to keep its core in place.
But looking down the list, it’s difficult to find one contract that really pops out as a mistake. Quarterback Russell Wilson ($12.6 million in 2017) is all of 28 years old and has a career per-attempt passing average of eight yards. Tight end Jimmy Graham ($7.9 million) is expensive in 2017 too, but he’s coming off a 923-yard season and showing no ill effects from his torn patellar tendon.
Then there are cornerback Richard Sherman ($11.4 million), safety Earl Thomas ($8.5 million) and fellow safety Kam Chancellor ($6.8 million), all of whom are still top performers at their positions. And the pass-rushing tandem of Cliff Avril ($4.5 million) and Michael Bennett ($6.5 million) is worth every penny too.
