When the Seattle Seahawks parted ways recently with veteran receiver Mike Williams, they ensured that they wouldn’t be paying Mike Williams in 2012.
Per a source with knowledge of the contract, Williams was due to pocket a base salary of $3 million in 2012. If he had been on the roster as of Week One, the amount would have essentially been fully guaranteed.
Williams also was eligible to earn per-game roster bonuses in the amount of $15,625, for a full-season total of $250,000. Now? Not.
Williams, who resurrected his career by joining the Seahawks in 2010, was signed through 2013. The 10th overall pick in the 2005 draft, Williams was out of football in 2008 an 2009.
