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."

Seahawks talking extension with Bobby Wagner, Russell Wilson
by Shawn Krest |

The Seahawks have begun negotiations with linebacker Bobby Wagner on a contract extension, reported. Wagner is scheduled to make $977,427 this year, the last season of his rookie contract. 

The team is still attempting to extend quarterback Russell Wilson, who will also complete his rookie contract. The two talks are somewhat related, since the team will only be able to tag one of the two players, if extensions aren't reached.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson embraces huge target that is Jimmy Graham
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has never had a receiver like tight end Jimmy Graham on his side of the ball, per The Seattle Times.

Wilson is already building a relationship with the 6-foot-7 Graham in order to find the perfect spots to throw him the ball. So far in organized team activities, the perfect spot has been anywhere.

“Throwing to him is easy,” Wilson said.

Graham, one of the premier targets at tight end, knows it will take a lot of repetition for him and Wilson to eventually get on the same page, but doesn't doubt that the duo will put up big numbers this season.

“That stuff takes time,” Graham said, “but honestly me and Russ have been on kind of this accelerated learning curve. He just gets it up and gives you an opportunity to be great. We’ll be keep working on that, and we’ll be just fine come the season, because that’s a big thing. That’s all about the connection, that’s all about knowing what each other is going to do and what each other likes.”

The Seahawks ranked 20th in the league last year in redzone efficiency, one thing that Graham's size and Wilson's decision-making will dramatically improve.

“That may be one of the biggest things, just the size we have down there when things start to get tight,” offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said.
