Part of the reason why the Seattle Seahawks have been able to build and keep a deeply talented roster is that their star quarterback, Russell Wilson, is being paid a mere pittance -- at least in terms of NFL contracts. His salary-cap hit is just $817,302 this season and $953,519 in 2015.

Dilson Herrera slugged his first major league home run on Monday in just his fourth game since being recalled from Double-A Binghamton, and helped change the complexion of a game the New York Mets went on to win.
