Bobby Engram Is Right That He’s Underpaid, Wrong That He Can Get a New Contract

Filed under: Seahawks, SeattleSeahawks wide receiver Bobby Engram skipped the team’s voluntary minicamp practice yesterday because he’s unhappy with his contract, the Tacoma News-Tribune reports.

Engram is correct if he thinks that based on his production, he deserves more money, but incorrect if he thinks he’s going to get it.

Engram, who was by far the Seahawks’ best receiver last year, has one year and $1.7 million left on his contract. Nate Burleson, who was the Seahawks’ second-best receiver last year, will make $3.25 million in 2008. Deion Branch, who was the Seahawks’ third-best receiver, will make $4.2 million. Who wouldn’t be annoyed when co-workers who contribute less to the company are making twice as much money?

But the fact is, pay in football isn’t a meritocracy. It isn’t about what you accomplished in the past, it’s about what the team expects you to accomplish in the future. Engram is 35 years old, and 35-year-olds just don’t get fat new contracts. Engram will play this season under his current deal.
