Report: Seahawks offer QB Russell Wilson $21 million annually
by Marty Gitlin |

The Seahawks have offered quarterback Russell Wilson a deal worth $21 million per year, sources have told Pro Football Talk.

Wilson and his team remain at an impasse in contract negotiations with training camp set to open Friday.

QB Russell Wilson reiterates desire to stay with Seahawks
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Quarterback Russell Wilson, whose contract status has developed into one of the offseason's major storylines, said that despite the issue with his deal, he still wants to remain with the Seahawks

"The rest will work out. The contract will work itself out. I'm excited about it and excited to hopefully be a Seattle Seahawk for a really, really long time," Wilson said during a football camp. "So, that's the goal."

Wilson is slated to play out the final year of his rookie contract in 2015, making $1.54 million, a figure wildly below market value for a player who has been to back-to-back Super Bowls.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson insured against injury this year
by Marty Gitlin |

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson hopes he plays this season under a new, more lucrative contract. But caution has trumped hope.

Wilson confirmed that he has taken out an insurance policy in case he gets badly hurt during the final year of his rookie deal that will pay him a comparatively meager $1.5 million.

"That's just being smart," Wilson told the Tacoma News Tribune. "If I do have to play this season (without a new contract), that's just being smart. That's all that is, really. I think that's the right thing to do."

Wilson added that negotiations that extend into the season will not distract him from maximizing his performance. Pete Carroll can certainly see the possibility of talks taking place during the year.

"I don't care how long we keep working," he said. "Whatever it takes, to do the right thing. ... That's why we are working."

Russell Wilson's agent inks 16-page letter to Seahawks on contract issue
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Mark Rodgers, the agent for Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, issued a 16-page letter to the club explaining his position on contract negotiations between Wilson and the Seahawks, as first reported by the NFL Network. 

Wilson is slated to play out the final year of his rookie contract in 2015, making $1.54 million. Rodgers previously started in a radio interview that Wilson is content to wait and see what happens after the season.

"Russell is under contract with the Seahawks," Rodgers said, per "He absolutely would be fine playing his fourth year under the contract he signed coming out and then moving on from there. I don't feel any particular crunch on time or any real particular deadlines."

Wilson added to the point, saying he isn't necessarily rushing to make a decision on his future past this season. 

"I'm prepared for that 100 percent if that's the case," Wilson said about the final year of his contract. "I want to be here for a long time. I just have to get ready to play. I love the game, and I love being out here with these guys. Ultimately, I just take it one day at a time and see where it takes me."
