Wilson will report to Seahawks even without new deal

  • Russell Wilson played with Saquon Barkley at the Pro Bowl earlier this year. Will they be Giants teammates soon

According to reports from several National Football League insiders, Wilson is not seeking a specific salary number, but a percentage of the team's salary cap.

Sources told ESPN and the NFL Network that Wilson's agent, Mark Rodgers, has been in Seattle for the last three days negotiating with team management.

Regardless of whether he has a new contract or no, it had been expected all along that Wilson will fulfill all of his regular requirements, including the offseason training program, which began Monday and is technically voluntary.

But he'd like an extension and set a deadline of Monday to get it done, with a report surfacing Sunday night that Wilson will not negotiate with the Seahawks further if a deal is not struck now - not just for the rest of this year, but evr.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson gave the team a deadline to get a long-term deal done. The Seattle Seahawks did not cave to the demands of the Super Bowl-winning quarterback and there is no contract extension in place. If the Seahawks can't lock up Wilson to a new deal, the franchise likely will use the franchise tag on the quarterback.

Rodgers is back atop the quarterback pay scale after signing an extension past year that averages $33.5 million. A significant amount of guaranteed money. He signed a 6-year, $114,100,000 contract back in 2016 which runs through 2021.

If Wilson doesn't get the extension he desires, he will still attend all training camps and activities and will play during the 2019 season.

For instance, when Wilson signed his most recent deal he was the second-highest paid player in the National Football League at $21.9 million per year behind only Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers. So in terms of age, it makes some sense to acquire Wilson. 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.
