Three Seahawks have the potential to bring in some extra cash as the 2017 season nears its end.

ESPN uncovered noteworthy bonuses for players on each NFL team, listing Luke Willson, Michael Bennett and Bradley McDougald as the Seahawks in line for paydays.

Bennett, according to the site, has already boosted his base salary of $1.5 million by an extra $150,00 because he totaled seven sacks. That escalator goes to $200,000 if the defensive lineman reaches nine sacks; he's at 8.5 entering the final game of the regular season.

The snap-count incentive in McDougald's one-year deal will pay him $100,000 if he's on the field for 60 percent of the team's defensive snaps. With one game remaining, McDougald has played 59 percent of the defensive snaps, meaning there's a strong chance he cracks the number necessary to earn the bonus.

Willson, who like McDougald is on a one-year deal, is set to earn a $125, 000 bonus if he reaches 20 receptions. The tight end enters the regular season finale with 15 catches (and four touchdowns).
