The deal came in a mere half-hour before the Wilson-imposed deadline. Wilson has been a pillar of performance and high-values since entering the league in 2012, throwing for at least 30 touchdowns in three of the last four years though 2018 did see a decline in both passing and rushing yardage. In 2018, Wilso... (More)4 days

3.Standoff over: Wilson signs 4-yr, $140M ... (Rotoworld) Seahawks signed Russell Wilson to a four-year, $140 million extension through 2023. Analysis: The deal includes a massive $65 million signing bonus with $107 million in total guarantees, and the new money makes him the highest-paid player in the NFL. The relatively short extension only runs through Wilson's age-34 season, so it is likely he will get another shot at a big deal. On the other hand, Wilson was not able to get his salary tied to the cap, a precedent he was reportedly hoping to set, but $140 million is a nice consolation prize. With this deal in place, the persistent trade ru... (More)4 days
4.Report: Today 'real deadline' in Wilson ... (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Monday is the "firm, real deadline" Russell Wilson's extension talks. Analysis: Per Rapsheet, Wilson's agent has been "in the building" the past three days to try to get a deal done. Whether or not Wilson truly intends for today to be the deadline, the Seahawks could still come back with an offer he could not refuse before Week 1, but it is clear Wilson is playing legitimate hard ball. NBC's Peter King has reported Wilson wants his future salaries tied to the salary cap. This could get ugly. Wilson's ultimate problem is that he could si... (More)5 days
5.Wilson wants cap adjustments in new cont... (Rotoworld) NBC Sports' Peter King reports Russell Wilson wants his future salaries tied to the cap. Analysis: "If it does get done," King writes, "my source says the contract would likely include devices to adjust future years of the deal based on how high the cap goes up year to year, or based on new revenue streams." With legalized gambling potentially providing a windfall for the league in coming years as well as a new TV contract, it makes a lot of sense for Wilson to want this kind of deal, but the Seahawks might be reluctant to set the precedent. Wilson has made today the... (More)5 days
6.Russ will show up tomorrow regardless of... (Rotoworld) The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta reports that Russell Wilson will report to the Seahawks offseason program on Monday regardless if a long-term deal is in place. Analysis: Time is ticking on Wilson's April 15th deadline, and there's been little movement on the surface between the two parties outside of a rumor that Wilson wants to play "elsewhere." If there's no deal tonight or tomorrow, Wilson plans to break off all negotiations, something that is rarely done by players this early in the process. The good news for the Seahawks is that Wilson doesn't appear to be threatening wit... (More)6 days
7.Seahawks think Russ wants to play 'elsew... (Rotoworld) A source told Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk on NBC Sports that the Seahawks believe Russell Wilson wants to play "elsewhere." Analysis: Wilson remains in contract talks with Seattle, but has so far been unwilling to grant the Seahawks a hometown discount. Florio suggests the six-time Pro Bowler could adopt a Kirk Cousins approach, playing under the franchise tag for multiple years in lieu of a long-term contract. Tyrann Mathieu (who, we must admit, is not a typical Rotoworld source) has further speculated that Wilson hopes to end up with the Giants. It goes without saying tha... (More)6 days
