Russell Wilson has just one year left on his contract before free agency. The Seahawks’ efforts to lock him up before the season begins eventually will take center stage, once they figure out what to do with Frank Clark, K.J. Wright and a few others.
To my way of thinking, if the Seahawks come to training camp in July with Wilson safely in fold, contentedly extended for three or four or five years, it will have been a productive offseason.
The story went on to say, on the flip side the last thing the team needs is a disgruntled QB with an unsettled contract situation entering a promising 2019 campaign. But, Wilson would likely play out his final year without issue being the pro he is, however the Seahawks surely don't want to let Wilson become a free agent. The story compared the situation to former baseball player Alex Rodriguez, who got a mega-contract he couldn't refuse and left the Seattle Mariners.
