Seahawks News: Marcus Trufant Accepts A Pay Cut

Veteran Seahawks Roster + Contract Trimming Continues

Even if his play has declined in recent seasons, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Marcus Trufant is still earning rave reviews for his attitude.

Marcus Trufant accepts a pay cut

The former All-Pro and first-round pick out of Washington State is reportedly accepting a significant pay cut as the team finalizes its roster for the 2011 season.

Trufant’s new deal, which he reportedly signed on August 20, reduced his 2011 base salary from $5.9 million to $3 million.

His base salary numbers for 2012 and 2013 of $7.2 million and $8.8 million, respectively, remain unchanged.

Trufant’s restructured contract also includes some “not likely to be earned” incentives.

If he makes his first Pro Bowl since 2007, plays a certain amount of games or makes a certain amount of interceptions, he can earn up to $2.65 million extra.
