This Seahawks have extended the only member of their offensive line who wasn’t hurt last season, center Max Unger. Unger will get over 24 million combined over 2013-2016, adding this extension onto the million or so he’ll make this year in the final year of his rookie deal. This deal also guarantees him 12 million total. Considering elite centers like Scott Wells (4 years, 24 million, 13 million guaranteed) and Chris Myers (4 years, 25 million, 14 million guaranteed) got similar amounts on their contracts this offseason, Unger is overpaid. He’s not an elite center and has never been one. This season, he was ProFootballFocus’ 17th ranked center, about as middle of the pack as you can get. There’s no reason to pay a solid starting center this much money. Grade: C
