The Seattle Seahawks Quarterback Russell Wilson is entering the last season on his deal and the Seahawks are trying to extend the Super Bowl champion Quarterback. And according to the Seattle Times Russell has a deadline on when these need to be finished:
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has given the team an April 15 deadline to complete negotiations on a new contract, a source with knowledge of the discussions has confirmed.
April 15 is the day the Seahawks will begin their official offseason workout program, and Wilson is thought to want the deal done by then. It’s also thought the two sides have had some negotiations in recent days with Wilson hoping to get the contract done quickly.
Wilson has one year remaining on his current four-year, $87.6 million contract, but it is typical for teams to sign key players to extensions before they enter the final year of their contracts.
This report will further spark rumors that Russell Wilson is interested in playing in New York due to his wife’s desire.
