Seahawks get aggressive in retaining Chris Carson and Ethan Pocic

Void years are one of the most aggressive tools available to NFL teams for the management of the current year’s salary cap at the expense of future seasons. In the past, the leadership of the Seattle Seahawks under John Schneider and Pete Carroll has not taken advantage of this tool, as it is akin to using a credit card and dipping into the cap space of future seasons. However, with Brady Henderson of ESPN reporting the details of the Ethan Pocic contract this morning, Seattle fans have now seen void years used twice in the course of a matter of days.
