Wilson and Seahawks at a contract impasse
Seattle Seahawks franchise quarterback Russell Wilson has made it clear that if he and the team don’t reach a contract extension agreement by midnight Monday, he will not sign one this season. Wilson is in the final year of his current contract and should end up as one of the highest paid players in the league when and if the new deal is done.
Re Russell Wilson negotiations: ignore the money, that can be worked out. This is all about precedent and future guarantees, with an ownership worth $20B hiding behind an antiquated NFL funding rule. #RussellWilson
