Anyone want $2.5 million to do nothing?
It should come as no surprise, but Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin has been ruled out for the NFC Championship game on Sunday.
There is a good reason the team is being so patient with him. This season his base salary is just $2.5 million; a relative drop in the bucket for an NFL team. However, next season his base goes up to $11 million.
If they have to lose this season—oh well, but next season? Not at that price tag.
