Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is tired of waiting around for a new contract. He is reportedly trying to force the team’s hand by giving them a deadline of April 15th to get the new deal done.
Via The Seattle Times:
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 told The Seattle Times.
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.
Trouble in the miserable northwest? It sure looks like it. Is this step one to Wilson forcing his way out to become Eli Manning’s replacement in New York?
The floodgates have been opened up for players to force their way out. Ciara is also rumored to want out of Seattle too. It’s all adding up to Wilson taking his talents elsewhere.
