Russell Wilson News
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has been very impressed with rookie wide receiver D.K. Metcalf in offseason practices. "Its great seeing DK [Metcalf] make his plays. I think DK is looking really, really special," Wilson said. "He can do anything and everything and hes tremendous." The second-round pick isn't just a physical specimen at 6-foot-4, 229 pounds with a 4.33-yard 40-yard dash and 40.5-inch vertical jump. Wilson has been impressed with his knowledge of the game as well. Metcalf should be the No. 2 in his rookie season behind Tyler Lockett, and he really has a chance to put up special numbers in Year 1 with Wilson slinging him the football deep.
The Seattle Seahawks and quarterback Russell Wilson have agreed to a four-year, $140 million contract extension which includes a $65 million signing bonus. Wilson had imposed his own deadline, but he and the team made it in right before that deadline hit. Wilson becomes the league's highest-paid player, and the Seahawks lock down one of the league's best signal-callers for another four years. There was never a huge belief that Wilson and Seattle would part ways, but now any minor concerns can be put to rest.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson apparently won't negotiate another long-term deal with the team if a contract extension isn't reached by Monday night. This gives the rumor that Wilson would like to play elsewhere some legs. He gave the Seahawks an April 15 deadline for a contract extension, and so far the two sides haven't come to an agreement. It's possible the team could look to trade him or put the franchise tag on him next season. Contract issues aside, Wilson remains firmly in the QB1 discussion after tossing a career-high 35 touchdowns in 2018. He may have trouble matching that this year, though, if Seattle continues to hand the ball off frequently.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has set Monday, April 15, as the firm, real deadline for a contract extension to be reached. Nothing has happened as of now, but Wilson's agent has been in the Seattle area for the last three days trying to get something done. It's expected that Wilson will be the highest paid player in the NFL if an extension gets done, but there's no guarantee that will happen and the Seahawks could place the franchise tag on him next year if an extension isn't agreed upon. Wilson would also like his salaries tied to the future salary caps. Wilson had a career-high 35 touchdown passes last year and remains a strong QB1 in an offense that ran the ball more than any other team in 2018.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will report to the team's first day of the offseason program on Monday whether he receives a long-term contract extension by his deadline on April 15 or not. The two sides don't appear to be close to reaching an agreement by Monday, so Wilson could end up playing the 2019 season on the final year of his contract. Seattle could look to slap the franchise tag on him next year or they could also trade him. A lot can still happen in this situation, and there are also reports that Wilson would like to play elsewhere. The 30-year-old handed the ball off more than any signal-caller in 2018 but still managed to toss a career-high 35 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. While there won't be much room for improvement on those numbers next year, Wilson remains a strong QB1 heading into next season.
