Russell Wilson Won't Sign Long-Term Deal With Seahawks Beyond April 15

Rumors fly on eve of Seahawks QB Russell Wilson's contract deadline

Rumors fly on eve of Seahawks QB Russell Wilson's contract deadline

When he signed that deal, he was the NFL's second-highest-paid quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers, averaging $22 million per year.

One report later Monday, though, from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network indicated that there was at least optimism to take from the fact that the two sides were still talking.

Throwing more fuel on that fire, one of Wilson's National Football League peers, Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu seems to believe that Wilson "wants NY". If a new contract is not agreed on, the Seahawks presumably will place their franchise tag on Wilson.

The Seahawks could make a trade like that and net several future first-round draft picks.

Wilson, 30, is entering the final year of his four-year, $87.6 million deal.

"Let's get it", Wilson tweeted early Tuesday morning.

The Seattle Seahawks and quarterback Russell Wilson have come to an agreement on a contract extension.

The 30-year-old's old average annual salary - $21.9 million - had put him at 12th in the National Football League for quarterbacks.

Wilson and Rodgers have informed John Schneider of their position.

Wilson's contract is up after this season.

What Wilson nearly certainly wants is a contract that would top the $33.5 million per year average of Rodgers, who is now the highest-paid player in the National Football League, and/or guarantees topping the $94.5 million that Atlanta QB Matt Ryan received last year, an amount that was fully guaranteed at signing. But if/when April 15 without a long-term deal between the Seahawks and Wilson, the question of whether would take less from a different team becomes highly relevant to whether the Seahawks could find a trade partner, if that's the route the team chooses to take instead of paying him unprecedented franchise-tag money on a year-to-year basis. The only ERFA who did not sign his deal Monday was receiver David Moore.
