Russell Wilson contract: What happens with no new contract from Seattle Seahawks?

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

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson works his way out of trouble to scramble for 26 yards in the fourth quarter as the Seattle Seahawks take on the Kansas City Chiefs at Century Link Field in Seattle Sunday

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.

Wilson is now under team control through the 2023 season.

While the midnight deadline is imposing, ESPN reported that both sides still are working hard to reach some sort of agreement.

Rodgers is back atop the quarterback pay scale after signing an extension a year ago that averages $33.5 million.

Rapoport said Wilson's side and the Seahawks were "still grinding" in the hopes of getting a deal done before the end of Monday night, which he said Seattle fans should take as "a reason for optimism".




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". After that extension, Wilson said he would have tabled contract talks and played out the final year of his rookie contract had the two sides not met the deadline.

Many of them have indicated that Russell Wilson wants to be the highest-paid quarterback in the NFL.

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

While the world waited on word on Wilson, the Seahawks did make a few moves, with restricted free agents George Fant and Quinton Jefferson officially signing their tenders, and nine exclusive rights free agents also signing their tenders. 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.
