Russell Wilson won't sign with Seattle Seahawks after self-imposed deadline

Russell Wilson won't sign with Seattle Seahawks after self-imposed deadline

He and agent Mark Rodgers had set an April 15 deadline as the last change to address a new contract for Wilson, who was entering the final year of his current deal. When he signed that deal, he was the NFL's second-highest-paid quarterback behind Aaron Rodgers, averaging $22 million per year.

It will be a challenge to get a new deal done by that deadline, though the sides are trying as talks continue, sources told Schefter.

Specifics of the new deal likely won't be available until the morning, but for now, Seahawks fans can rest easy knowing Seattle locked up their favorite quarterback for years to come.

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".

The Seahawks have not officially made an announcement.

The 30-year-old's old average annual salary - $21.9 million - had put him at 12th in the National Football League for quarterbacks.

Seattle has had a precedent of not guaranteeing base salaries other than for injury beyond the first year of the contract (with any guarantees typically kicking five days following the season).

The Russell Wilson contract situation has evolved into the next chapter.

Wilson is under contract in 2019 at $17 million and could earn $30.3 million in 2020 and $36.4 million in 2021 before his franchise tag would skyrocket to $52.4 million for 2022. Wilson has since fallen to 12th in terms of annual average salary among quarterbacks, and it is believed he wants his next contract to hold up longer than his last one.

The nine ERFAs kept in the fold are: linebackers Austin Calitro and Emmanuel Ellerbee, center Joey Hunt, defensive end Branden Jackson, safetey Shalom Luani, running back J.D. McKissic, snapper Tyler Ott, cornerback Kalan Reed and guard Jordan Simmons. But Tom Peliserro of the NFL Network reported that Moore will sign his contract Tuesday.
