Wilson will report to Seahawks even without new deal

Russell Wilson

But he'd like an extension and set a deadline of Monday to get it done, with a report surfacing Sunday night that Wilson will not negotiate with the Seahawks further if a deal is not struck now - not just for the rest of this year, but evr. But Wilson may be asking for fully guaranteed money throughout much, if not all, of the contract. That means his income would increase as the team cap increases.

But what happens if Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks don't come to terms on a contract extension?

Wilson said recently that his next contract could make him the NFL's highest-paid player. His roster spot also carries a cap hit of $25.23 million, which would be a deterrent to the team trying to trade him.

Throwing more fuel on that fire, one of Wilson's National Football League peers, Kansas City Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu seems to believe that Wilson "wants NY". But can they live with trading away Wilson instead? The franchise is looking for a younger quarterback to take over for Eli Manning and that has led to a number of sports analysts floating Wilson-to-New York scenarios.

A trade involving Wilson might lose the Seahawks a lot of fans, especially with how hard it is to land an elite quarterback in the NFL. It's up to him if he wants to sign the tag, or sit out as negotiations continue.

Per a league source, the Seahawks think that Wilson would like to play elsewhere, even if he hasn't and wouldn't ever say it.

"Let's get it", Wilson tweeted early Tuesday morning.

Rapoport said Wilson's side and the Seahawks were "still grinding" in the hopes of getting a deal done before the end of Monday night, which he said Seattle fans should take as "a reason for optimism".
