Russell Wilson announces new Seahawks mega-deal from bed

Russell Wilson

And, yes, under the right financial circumstances, Wilson will sign what would be a third contract in Seattle.

While noted National Football League writer Peter King reported that one sticking point is that Wilson's side would like a contract with so-called "escalator clauses" tied to the salary cap - meaning, Wilson's contract would rise as much as the cap does each year - former Seahawks QB and close friend of Wilson, Jake Heaps, said on ESPN 710 Seattle those are not an issue and that the main hang-up is guaranteed money, and particularly in years two and three.

There are a lot of players in the National Football League that would hold out for more money if they didn't come to terms on a contract extension.

Wilson had previously given the Seattle Seahawks until April 15th to finish negotiations on a contract extension, according to reports.

The ultimatum stated that he would not negotiate in that regard for the rest of the National Football League season.

Wilson's contract expires at the end of this season. His roster spot also carries a cap hit of $25.23 million, which would be a deterrent to the team trying to trade him.

The New York Giants are a team that has been linked to a possible Russell Wilson trade.

But the Seahawks had to weigh how much to pay Wilson while also knowing they have decisions coming on Clark as well as Reed and middle linebacker Bobby Wagner.

NY in this instance certainly means the Giants.

The Seahawks have not officially made an announcement. Meeting his demands might get Wilson and his agent back to the table after the deadline.

Per a league source, the Seahawks think that Wilson would like to play elsewhere, even if he hasn't and wouldn't ever say it. If he were to decline, they could place a franchise tag on him, which would lead to a one-year contract. If the Seahawks can't lock up Wilson to a new deal, the franchise likely will use the franchise tag on the quarterback.
