Hawks ink first pick

by: Chris Sullivan

The Seahawks have signed rookie safety Courtney Greene to a contract, hurrah! Greene was the 245th overall pick in the 2009 draft, and signed a 4-year, 1.8 million deal with a $43,000 signing bonus. One might expect Nick Reed and Cameron Morrah to follow suit shortly behind him.

Greene will make base salaries of $310,000 in 2009, $395,000 in 2010, $480,000 in 2011 and $565,000 in 2012. In other words, he be loaded.
