Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson He shook the NFL world last Tuesday when the revelation came out that put his organization at a rhythm of time when it comes to the two parties agreeing to a contract extension. Granted, it's okay "shaken" is a bit of an exaggeration, but since the Seahawks do not need to sign Wilson on any specific date, the idea that Wilson would impose a self-imposed ban on contractual conversations intrigued the mind.
According to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times, Wilson and his camp will no longer negotiate contract negotiations after April 15, leaving the Seahawks with only a few hours to finalize the agreement. In addition to the pressure, Wilson will not return to the table if an agreement is not reached on Monday night and that means never. This is the only opportunity for the Seahawks to re-sign Wilson.
When Wilson enters the final year of his contract in 2019, only two results seem likely in this test. Or, Wilson will sign a deal larger than the quarterback of the Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers He did it last season and became the new highest paid quarterback in the NFL or Seahawks. The caller will earn a franchise tag in 2020 and get a large increase, but not the long-term guaranteed money you expect.
Either way, the Seahawks can only kick this decision on the road, but so far, and Wilson is screwing them up by limiting his window for conversations. Here is how the NFL reacted to the news of Wilson's self-inflicted deadline. There was a lot of information to express and analyze and not even a day has passed.
The next two weeks should be fun unless they are fans of the Seahawks. Then, they are probably simply unbearable.
