Seahawks | Russell Wilson may not receive new deal

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 10:54:21 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson is talking with the Seahawks about a contract extension, but the two sides may not reach an agreement before the start of training camp, according to sources. The two sides do not appear to be in agreement about the amount of money up front or the guaranteed money.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson is not expected to hold out if he does not receive an extension, so he will play this season. Wilson has the ability to produce as a passer as well as a runner, which gives him an advantage over other quarterbacks. He should be a solid starting option in all leagues.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson's contract being negotiated

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 12:44:49 -0700

Updating a previous report, Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and his representatives have issues with the guaranteed money involved in his current offer. Still, Wilson hasn't turned the deal down yet. If both sides don't agree to a new deal soon, Wilson and the Seahawks will have to wait until after the season to try to get a deal done.

Fantasy Tip: It would be better for both parties to get a deal done before training camp starts. Wilson has said he will stay focused on the game this season even if an extension isn't reached. He's one of the most versatile quarterbacks in the NFL and should be drafted as a top-five fantasy quarterback.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson offered a deal?

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 12:43:03 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has supposedly been offered a contract extension that would pay him about $21 million per year. The deal would also include a significant amount of guaranteed money. If Wilson does not agree to a deal before training camp or the regular season starts, he could very well be given the franchise tag after this season.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has shown he deserves a hefty long-term deal. It's hard to imagine one not getting done at some point. Wilson has said he's focused on this season whether he signs a new deal or not. He should be selected as a top-five fantasy quarterback.

Seahawks | No progress on Russell Wilson deal?

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 18:27:07 -0700

Seattle Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner could agree to a long-term deal by the start of training camp, and the team's focus on Wagner's deal could be a sign of little progress with the negotiations for QB Russell Wilson, according to NFL Network's Rand Getlin.

Fantasy Tip: Regardless of whether Wilson agrees to an extension, he should be considered a solid QB1 in 2015 with top five upside at his position thanks to his scrambling ability.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson wants free-agent money

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 14:20:18 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has not yet entered free agency, but he does want to be paid like that is the case. He also wants a fully guaranteed contract. If a deal does not get done by the time training camp starts, Wilson could very likely be given the franchise tag next season that will be worth at least $25 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson's current contract and an extension have been an issue for a while now, and it probably won't end any time soon. Again, Wilson will be focusing on football no matter what happens. He has a top-three fantasy quarterback ceiling heading into his fourth season in the NFL.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson, SEA not close on contract

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 14:12:46 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and the organization are still not close in their negotiations on an extension. Negotiations should increase leading up to training camp, but are expected to cease once training camp commences.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has already iterated and reiterated that whether or not an extension does get done, he will be focusing on football this season, not his contract. Wilson has far exceeded expectations in his first three seasons, becoming the best dual-threat quarterback in the league, maybe aside from Cam Newton. Wilson is once again capable of putting up top-five numbers in fantasy leagues at the quarterback position this year.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson talks may have deadline

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 10:16:40 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson has been having contract extension talks with the Seahawks since the beginning of the offseason, but the talks likely will stop once training camp begins.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson has stated he is willing to play out his contract, so owners will not have to worry about a holdout. Wilson has posted solid numbers since entering the league and should be a solid No. 1 quarterback option in fantasy leagues.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson not worried about contract

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 17:58:42 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson reiterated Wednesday, July 15, he's not worried about his looming contract issue. "I love Seattle, it's a great city," Wilson continued. "I'm going to play my butt off every day. That's all I know, and we'll see what happens." Wilson's rookie contract expires at the end of the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson is worth nearly anything he wants in contract talks, after he led the Seahawks to back-to-back Super Bowls the last two seasons. Wilson's play has spoken as loud as it can but the Seahawks will have to get creative with their roster and cap situation to retain Wilson's services.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson hasn't ruled out baseball

Fri, 03 Jul 2015 14:18:05 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson said he would consider playing professional baseball in addition to professional football if he were traded to the Seattle Mariners.

Fantasy Tip: This is obviously a hypothetical and farfetched situation, but Wilson did say it's been a dream of his to play both sports professionally. Focusing on football, however, Wilson remains one of the most dynamic quarterbacks in the NFL. His running ability gives him a big boost in fantasy realms. He should be drafted as a top-five quarterback this year.
